Florida's governor is getting involved in rooting out the ongoing corruption that plagues Tallahassee.

On Friday, Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an Executive Order, removing suspended City Commissioner for the City of Tallahassee Scott Maddox from his post.

The order comes three days after the Democrat, along with longtime business associate Paige Carter-Smith, pled guilty to two extortion charges and a tax fraud charge. 

Both extortion counts hold 20 years, with the tax fraud charge holding another five.
