Aren't cops allowed to let people go with a warning? Also, didn't his supervisor agree to this?

This just tells me that this guy is a lawmaker (what it means to be one, not the job title).

Yeah actually, in Florida the citation is at the discretion of the officer. If it illegal for anyone else to interfere with the citation process once it has been signed off on by the officer, except the officer himself or a judge. If the ticket makes it to the County/City clerks office and is on file with the court system, the officer can write a letter to the judge explaining that he would like to rescind the citation, however it is up to the judge at that point in the process on what happens.

"to stroke him" is police slang for write a ticket. He's saying he's going to opt to not give him the expensive ticket but not let the traffic stop be a complete bust and give him a ticket for something.
