Rebekah Jones, a former state data scientist, said Florida agents in vests knocked on her door this week and took all her "hardware and tech" after showing her a warrant based on a complaint filed by the Florida Department of Health. Jones is the former Department of Health data scientist who built Florida's much-praised COVID-19 dashboard before being fired over what she said was refusing to "manipulate data." She was fired from her job as Geographic Information Systems manager for the department in May and Queer News Tonight has reported her findings in repeated stories. Video of the Monday raid shows agents in vests entering Jones' house with guns drawn. An attorney for the State of Florida resigned yesterday in protest of the raid as politically motivated by Florida governor Ron DeSantis. Florida is falling under multiple allegations of manipulating their Covid-19 numbers.
