Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis commented for the first time Friday on the search warrant that was executed earlier this week at the home of a fired state data scientist Rebekah Jones.
“Just because you’re a darling of some corners of the fever swamps, that does not exempt you from following the law,” DeSantis said.
Florida Department of Law Enforcement served the search warrant Monday, saying a computer at Jones’ home was used to hack the Department of Health.
Jones was fired for repeatedly violating department policy by speaking to the media without permission. She says she was asked to manipulate data and has since created her own.
