Statement Condemning Police Raid of Whistleblower Rebekah Jones’ Home

1 min read

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.”

Florida Democrats believe in effective and efficient government that prioritizes quality education, affordable health care, and an economy in which anyone who works hard can succeed.

Most importantly, we believe that we are stronger together. We believe the fundamental American promise — that you can go as far as your own hard work will take you — should shine brightest in Florida.

That is why we champion the middle class and cherish the principle that all Floridians should have the opportunity to work hard and succeed. That is why we will never stop fighting for better public schools, because education is the surest path to a better life for millions.

From standing for affordable health care and better schools to fighting for civil rights and access to the ballot box, Florida Democrats are leading every day to move our state forward.
