Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Fired Florida data scientist was also axed by FSU over affair with student”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

One of the people entering data into Florida’s coronavirus website was fired in a dispute over what information should be made public and was, according to a report in The Daily Mail, allegedly also fired from Florida State University in 2017 for having an affair with a student — and later was charged with cyberstalking.

Rebekah Jones, who says she helped design the site, said she was fired because she would not manually change data to support Gov. Ron DeSantis’ decision to begin the reopening of the state. DeSantis denied that, saying Jones was fired for insubordination and should never have been hired because she is being investigated for cyberstalking. He said she was not one of the site’s designers but someone who entered data.

The Daily Mail reported Jones was charged with three counts of cyberstalking her student Garrett Sweeterman, then 21, who filed a restraining order against her.

She allegedly created a “revenge porn” website called SurvivingGarrett and sent the link to online boards focusing on feminism and the #metoo movement.

Jones also wrote a 342-page manifesto with a narrative of her affair with Sweeterman; she posted online at least 60 pages, including screen grabs of their sexts.
