Armed FL Agents Raid Home Of COVID Whistleblower

The Tallahassee Democrat reports:

State police brandishing firearms raided the home of Rebekah Jones, the former Department of Health employee who built the state’s much-praised COVID-19 dashboard before being fired over what she said was refusing to “manipulate data.”

Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger sent a statement confirming the seizure of computer equipment at Jones’s Tallahassee home and said agents are investigating.

“FDLE began an investigation November 10, 2020 after receiving a complaint from the Department of Health regarding unauthorized access to a Department of Health messaging system which is part of an emergency alert system, to be used for emergencies only,” Plessinger said.

As I reported in May, Jones said she was fired after refusing to fake COVID data in order to justify reopening schools.
