The woman who accused the state of rigging the COVID-19 casualty figures is suing the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. In the suit, whistleblower Rebekah Jones says the FDLE raid on her home was a sham — as retaliation for not altering the data when she worked on the COVID-19 dashboard at the Department of Health.
Also, on today’s Sunrise:
— Florida started the week with another day of triple-digit COVID-19 deaths, with 115 fatalities reported Monday by the health department. But there are more vaccines arriving today. Gov. Ron DeSantis says there could be another 750,000 doses by the end of the month, most of which will go to seniors.
—The Governor says he will NOT be following the recommendation of a CDC advisory committee that wants to prioritize vaccines for essential workers over seniors.
— Senate President Wilton Simpson suggested halting construction of a new reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee — saying we can’t afford it because of the pandemic. But DeSantis says there’s no stopping it now.
— The Governor made those remarks at Key Biscayne, where he and Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava were announcing a plan to restore Biscayne Bay. Job one is to get rid of the crap. Literally. Leaky septic tanks and aging sewer systems are two of the biggest threats.
— And finally, a Florida Woman is making serious money during the lockdown with her voice … and an OnlyFans account.
