FL Dem. Lauren Book continues pressure on Ron DeSantis over Jeffrey Epstein case

Sen. Lauren Book is continuing to mine for the public support the Plantation Democrat hopes will pressure Gov. Ron DeSantis into launching an independent investigation into how the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office handled sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

While the Republican governor mulls her request, Book’s taken to Twitter to solicit signatures demanding the independent probe.

“We need an FDLE investigation into how #Epstein was able to ENJOY — not SERVE — his time under PBSO supervision,” Book, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, tweeted Monday.

She’s posted similar tweets throughout the week.

The names are being gathered for a massive drop-off in the governor’s office by Lauren’s Kids, the non-profit Book founded aimed at preventing child sexual abuse.

“There are several thousand signatures on the petition. Still no response from the Governor’s office,” Claire VanSusteren, a spokeswoman for the senator, said in an email on Wednesday, when asked how the campaign was going.

As of Thursday morning, the governor’s office had not responded to requests to comment on Book’s call for an independent investigation. But last week, DeSantis said he was considering whether state law-enforcement officials had an oversight role.

3. What is DeSantis hiding?

What role did that illegitimate governor play in Epstein's deal?
