- Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis snapped at a reporter who asked him about a police raid on a former data scientist who claims the state fired her for refusing to manipulate coronavirus statistics.
- The Florida Department of Law Enforcement executed a search warrant Monday at the home of Rebekah Jones, who was fired by the state’s Department of Health earlier this year and then claimed she was told to undercount infections and inflate the number of people tested.
- “It’s not a raid,” DeSantis added, before growing angry at the journalist. “I mean, with all due respect, what you just said is editorializing. Sir, excuse me! Excuse me, no excuse me. I’m not going to let you get away with that. These people did their jobs, they’ve been smeared as the Gestapo for doing their jobs.”
