About this Episode

The Florida Senate meets in Special Session to decide whether Scott Israel should be reinstated as sheriff of Broward County. Ron DeSantis suspended Israel for the failures of his deputies during the killings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as well as a mass shooting at the Fort Lauderdale Airport, but a Special Master hired by the Senate says the Governor was wrong.

Also, on today’s Sunrise:

— Attorney General Ashley Moody weighs in on the Special Session, supporting Israel’s removal.

— The union representing Florida teachers is taking its “big red bus” to six Panhandle counties in three days to campaign for public education.

— Veteran pollster Steve Vancore stops by to discuss the Senate Rules Committee meeting during the Special Session.

— And the further adventures of Florida Man, the superhero we don’t need, but richly deserve: Deputies in Polk County charged a man with driving under the influence after he was spotted weaving through traffic on a two-wheeled Segway. His blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit.
