Here’s some “breaking” news about fired dashboard designer and “whistleblower” Rebekah Jones, who claimed that Gov. Ron DeSantis had asked her to falsify Florida’s COVID-19 numbers. An independent investigation found out what every sane person already knew: She’s nuts and lied about the whole thing.

Attention news media: Stop referring to her as “whistleblower Rebekah Jones.”

NBC News reports:

A prominent critic of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Covid response made “unsubstantiated” claims that state health officials had fired her because she refused to present manipulated data online, according to an inspector general’s report obtained by NBC News on Thursday.

The 27-page report from the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Inspector General said it found “insufficient evidence” to support Rebekah Jones’ accusations that she was asked to falsify Covid positivity rates or misrepresent them on the state’s dashboard she helped design. The report also “exonerated” officials accused by Jones of wrongdoing because they removed a data section from the website to ensure that private individual health information was not released publicly.

The independent report paints a portrait of an employee who did not understand public health policy or the significance of epidemiological data, did not have high-level access to crucial information and leveled claims that made professional health officials “skeptical.”

 

We were assured by plenty of liberals that she was some sort of hero for saying DeSantis was fudging the COVID-19 numbers to make Florida look better. She should go share a cell with Michael Avenatti.

Update:

We have to get Max Nordau in here, as he’s been relentless in exposing Jones:
