GOP Turncoat Resigns, Instantly Jumps in Bed With CNN

CNN and the Democrats are idolizing a GOP turncoat out of Florida who has come forward to complain about Governor Ron DeSantis.

“Lifelong Republican” Ron Filipkowski, whose twitter handle is “RonGOPVet4Biden,” has resigned from his position as vice chairman of the 12th Circuit Judicial Nomination Committee in Florida.

Filipkowski appeared on CNN anchor Chris Cuomo’s show on Tuesday night explaining his decision to resign. He complained about the fact that agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement raided the home of a data scientist who had been fired from the Florida Department of Health in May.

The scientist, Rebekah Jones, had been let go after a dispute with her superiors over reporting COVID data. Jones had been a difficult employee from the start, making trouble for Governor DeSantis by accusing him of manipulating COVID data, and building her own COVID dashboard.

Filipkowski agreed with Jones that the raid was an attempt by the Governor to “intimidate” her and other scientists.

“I watched the video when she tweeted it out right after the incident happened, and I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” the GOP turncoat said, later adding, “I saw what was happening and I couldn’t believe it. Then I read the search warrant, and I’m a criminal lawyer, and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing in the search warrant about how broad it was, about what they were alleging as a supposed crime.”

If I remember correctly, she was hired only to enter data. She's NOT a data "scientist" and this wasn't her first rodeo with lying.

Rebekah Jones, the COVID Whistleblower Who Wasn’t-Yahoo

Jones’s central claim is nothing less dramatic than that she has uncovered a massive conspiracy in the third most populous state in the nation, and that, having done so, she has been ruthlessly persecuted by the governor and his “Gestapo.” Specifically, Jones claims that, while she was working at the FDOH last year, she was instructed by her superiors to alter the “raw” data so that Florida’s COVID response would look better, and that, having refused, she was fired. Were this charge true, it would reflect one of the most breathtaking political scandals in all of American history.

But it’s not true. Indeed, it’s nonsense from start to finish. Jones isn’t a martyr; she’s a myth-peddler. She isn’t a scientist; she’s a fabulist. She’s not a whistleblower; she’s a good old-fashioned confidence trickster.

Don’t know if Wikipedia info can be posted on here. Sooooo.
Go to Wikipedia and scroll all the way down her biography to the section titled, “Legal Issues”. She has been quite a charmer in her past life.

Who are you rooting for here?

The only one who seems to be the good guy in this story is the woman who tried to report factual data, and was fired for it.
Are you demeaning her based on CNN reporting? You know CNN is a bunch of lying liars, don’t you?

This CNN article is all over the place.

Fit mine to the tee though...

Still surprising to see suicide blondes outside of Kali, but the spelling of Rebecca (kah) is a dead giveaway.

Last original thought she had was 5 minutes before the first Sociology 101 class freshman year. That professor was sure cute though...
