The Republican Party of Florida has taken swift action against Chairman Christian Ziegler, suspending him and demanding his resignation amid an investigation into allegations of sexual assault, including rape. The party voted to make Ziegler's salary $1 and strip him of most of his power, transferring authority to Vice Chair Evan Power. Governor Ron DeSantis and other top officials have called for Ziegler to step down, and the allegations involve a woman with whom he and his wife had a prior consensual sexual relationship. The party's swift action shows that they are taking the allegations seriously.
