The Broward County Sheriff just got some very bad news (finally)

Following the Parkland, Florida murders, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel became the darling of the left-wing media for parroting their anti-gun narrative.

As more information came out revealing multiple missed red flags, Sheriff Israel refused to take any personal responsibility.

Instead, he threw everyone else under the bus and now he’s about to pay dearly for his actions.

In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Sheriff Israel touted his “amazing leadership.”

Now, Israel is facing a vote of no confidence from the union representing his own sheriff’s deputies.

CNN reports:

Jeff Bell, the president of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association, told CNN on Friday that union members had decided to move forward with the vote, which will begin electronically tonight and will close on April 26.

“There is a complete failure at the sheriff’s office and he doesn’t recognize it,” Bell said.

Calling the vote a “ploy,” Israel said the union “is trying to use the Parkland tragedy as a bargaining tactic to extort a pay raise.”

Aside from the sheriff’s comments in the aftermath of Parkland, a letter informing the union membership of the vote contains a multitude of other complaints against Israel. Union audits showed that Israel has returned hundreds of millions of dollars to the county that could have been used money for deputy salary increases, training, health care, crime laboratory upgrades and safety equipment, the letter said.

Bell said he informed the sheriff ahead of the announcement that the vote would go forward.

“The move follows many instances of suspected malfeasance … and the lack of leadership that has crushed morale throughout the agency,” the announcement from the deputies association says.

A vote of no confidence would show that the majority of sheriff’s deputies believe Israel should resign.

This is an unprecedented move by the union representing the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

The vote will end on Thursday April, 26. We will keep you updated on this story.

UPDATE: According to USA TODAY, “The union says 534 out of 628, or 85%, who voted said they had no confidence in Israel.”

    We have to watch out for who we elect to Sheriff. Some of these guys just repeat the oath of office…they don’t TAKE it and dump the constitution at the first chance they get.

  6. If the school security officer had done his job fewer students would have died that day. Some could still had been save if the police had not behaved like a bunch of cowards. The perpetrator is responsible for shootings but he could have been stopped before he murdered all of his victims. The police also have the blood of those students on their hands.

    Yes that would certainly help with finding a qualified sheriff. It’s amazing to me that you can elect a sheriff with no police background or history. If generals have to be promoted through ranks why not sheriffs.
