Holy FUCKING Shit, DeSantis!

Dr. Rebekah Jones built her own COVID-19 dashboard to track Florida infections and deaths after being fired for accurately reporting that data as part of her job with the state.

Since then, she’s been reporting COVID stats on her own from her own hardware in her own home. Until today.

From her tweets:

There will be no update today.

At 8:30 am this morning, state police came into my house and took all my hardware and tech.

They were serving a warrant on my computer after DOH filed a complaint.

They pointed a gun in my face. They pointed guns at my kids…

They took my phone and the computer I use every day to post the case numbers in Florida, and school cases for the entire country.

They took evidence of corruption at the state level.

They claimed it was about a security breach.

This was DeSantis.

He sent the gestapo.



This is what happens to scientists who do their job honestly.

This is what happens to people who speak truth to power.

I tell them my husband and my two children are upstairs… and THEN one of them draws his gun.

On my children.

This is Desantis’ Florida.



If Desantis thought pointing a gun in my face was a good way to get me to shut up, he’s about to learn just how wrong he was.

I’ll have a new computer tomorrow.

And then I’m going to get back to work.

If you want to help, my website is still at

Geez, what a piece of shit.

Gestapo indeed.

And now desantis has the chutzpah to assert that he had nothing to do with the raid. Goddam coward.
