The professional downward spiral continues for a clerk of court and comptroller from the Panhandle.
On Wednesday, Holmes County’s Kyle Hudson was charged after an audit revealed questionable travel expenses amounting to more than $6,000.
“Hudson submitted travel vouchers for several conferences, Clerk of Court Operations Corporation meetings, and canvassing board meetings. FDLE agents found that Hudson either did not attend the meetings or that the meetings never happened,” the Dothan Eagle reported.
By Thursday, Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended Hudson, twice elected to office.
Hudson is out on $7,500 bond, albeit with one condition: “Do not return to the Holmes County Courthouse unless advised by the Governor’s Office to do so.”
The current executive order is a more muted one than that issued to others suspended by the Governor.
When suspending controversial Broward Sheriff Scott Israel, DeSantis spotlighted “poor leadership … during the tragic Fort Lauderdale International Airport shooting in 2017 … during the devastating shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018.”
And when suspending Port Richey Mayor Dale Glen Massad, DeSantis said he was “clearly unfit to continue serving.”
