Broward County Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony 'misused his public position' when he lied to get a previous law enforcement job, a Florida state board alleges. This could lead to a recommendation to Gov. Ron DeSantis to fire Tony. In its Friday meeting, the Florida Commission on Ethics found probable cause to believe Tony had committed the wrong-doing, according to the board's Wednesday press release. The board specifically alleged: 'Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony misused his public position when he provided false information or did not disclose information during the hiring process for his employment with the Coral Springs Police Department; when he provided false information or did not disclose information during the appointment process for his service as Broward County Sheriff; when completing a notarized Form 68 submitted to FDLE while serving as Broward County Sheriff; and when applying to renew his driver's license while serving as a law enforcement officer.
