— A new report in the Fort Lauderdale News and Sun-Sentinel accuse the state of artificially depressing the COVID-19 death toll in the weeks before the election. But they’re booming now: 125 additional fatalities were reported Wednesday … along with 11,541 newly confirmed cases of COVID-19 cases.
— The man who runs the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is defending his officers ... saying it was wrong for COVID-19 whistleblower Rebekah Jones to compare FDLE agents to the Gestapo.
— FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen says they haven’t completed their investigation of Jones, but he says she lied repeatedly about the raid on her Tallahassee home.
— On Sunrise Soapbox, Florida’s Attorney General defends her support for a lawsuit that would have invalidated millions of votes in four swing states won by Joe Biden. Democrats call it an attempted coup … Ashley Moody insists she was trying to bring faith and trust to the electoral process.
— And finally, a Florida Woman is charged with attacking a maid and throwing her own German shepherd from the second-floor balcony of a Motel 6. Don’t worry — the dog is fine.
