Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo released the following statement on the state police raid of the home of whistleblower Rebekah Jones:
“Florida is not a banana republic and Governor DeSantis is not a dictator. It is unconscionable that he directed state police to raid the home of a private citizen who disagrees with him. We applaud those in his inner circle who have resigned as a result of his abuse of power.
“Governor DeSantis should use the power of his office to address the pandemic with science instead of promoting dark web conspiracy theories. We are grateful to our Democratic elected officials who are working overtime to get to the bottom of this deeply concerning situation.”
