Patty Cummings, a now former city councilwoman for Cape Coral, has been suspended from office by order of the governor of Florida.
Gov. Ron DeSantis issued the suspension Thursday afternoon.
She was arrested Tuesday and later released.
The state attorney charged Cummings with three felonies. The state attorney believes Cummings cheated her way onto the city council’s District 4 seat, claiming she leased and legally resided in the home along Palm Tree Boulevard.
