The news is out: [Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents on Monday raided, at gunpoint, the home of the former Department of Health employee who had claimed she’d been told to censor COVID-19 data before being fired in May.
Since her ouster, Rebekah Jones has been a vocal critic of Gov. Ron DeSantis’ handling of the pandemic, as cases soared and he refused to issue a mask mandate, among other preventative measures that could have saved lives.
Jones tweeted that state police burst in at 8:30 a.m. to serve a warrant on her computer, The Orlando Sentinel first reported.
She added, “This is what happens to scientists who do their job honestly. This is what happens to people who speak truth to power…. If DeSantis thought pointing a gun in my face was a good way to get me to shut up, he’s about to learn just how wrong he was.”
The state said authorities were investigating whether Jones is the one who hacked into the state’s emergency communications channel to send a message that urged people to “speak up before another 17,000 people are dead,” the Tampa Bay Times reported last month.]
Sue the bastards. I see a lot of money in Rebekah’s future. Floriduh deserves Ron DeSantis just like the US deserves Donald Trump.
