The news is out: [FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Fired Florida data scientist Rebekah Jones is suing the Florida Department of Law Enforcement over the police raid on her house.
Jones’ lawsuit alleges that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement violated her constitutional rights, as well as state law, when officers served a warrant on her home during the early hours of Dec. 7.
“The basis of the warrant was a sham to punish plaintiff for her protected speech,” says the lawsuit, which was filed Monday in Leon County civil court.
Representatives for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement could not immediately be reached for comment.
Officers served the warrant on Jones’ house after they said they traced an unauthorized entry into a Florida Department of Emergency Management text message service back to an IP address registered to Jones.
Jones denies accessing the messaging service. She also denies using it to send a message to thousands of employees of the Florida Department of Health that read, in part, “It’s time to speak up before another 17,000 people are dead. You know this is wrong.”
Jones has not been charged with a crime.]
Mess with the Constitution, pay the price. Everyone, from DeSantis, to the judge who signed that warrant, to the idiots who served the warrant, should be sued. Like I wrote before, I see a lot of money going to Rebekah’s bank account.
