Palm Beach FL Elections Chief Susan Bucher Suspended

(WEST PALM BEACH, FL.) – January 18, 2019: The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) today commended Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ decision to suspend Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher.

“Governor DeSantis is absolutely right to suspend Supervisor Bucher,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said. “Unlike the recently suspended supervisors in South Florida, the governor takes election integrity seriously.”

During the 2016 federal election cycle, Palm Beach County, by its own admission, did not remove a single registrant due to inactivity and unresponsiveness, according to federal law.
