Coleman Joins Law Enforcement in Supporting Suspension of Far-Left Florida Prosecutor
CRESTWOOD, Ky. (September 8, 2022) – Republican candidate for Kentucky Attorney General Russell Coleman announced today he joined a federal amicus brief standing firm against woke prosecutors who refuse to enforce the law. The brief was submitted by the Florida Sheriffs Association in Warren v. DeSantis in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida.
As a former U.S. Attorney and state prosecutor, Coleman knows firsthand that a blanket refusal to try entire categories of cases is a serious abuse of power that endangers law enforcement and families.
“Woke prosecutors cannot create their own version of right and wrong. Families will never truly be safe if progressive officials can look the other way when a law doesn’t align with their political beliefs. They abuse their power and threaten the safety of our law enforcement officers and everyone they protect,” said Coleman. “Governor DeSantis is strongly defending the people of Florida, and I am proud to join law enforcement leaders and former prosecutors from around the country in supporting his leadership to keep families safe.”
Coleman is the most qualified Attorney General candidate in Kentucky’s history, and he will always put public safety ahead of politics. As Kentucky’s next top cop, Coleman will Back the Blue, take on violent crime and protect Kentucky’s pro-life and pro-family values.
“If I have the honor to serve as Kentucky’s next Attorney General, I will carry out my duty to uphold the laws of our Commonwealth and work to support every prosecutor at every level who shares that mission,” Coleman continued. “I’ll speak up against anyone—in Kentucky or elsewhere—who puts their own politics above the will and the safety of the people we are sworn to serve.”
