Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Florida data scientist-turned-whistleblower Rebekah Jones says she’ll turn herself in after police issue arrest warrant”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Rebekah Jones, the former data analyst who claims she was fired after refusing to alter Florida’s COVID-19 numbers, said Saturday that police have issued a warrant for her arrest.

Jones, who was fired in May from the Florida Department of Health, said she plans to turn herself in Sunday night “to protect my family from continued police violence, and to show that I’m ready to fight whatever they throw at me,” but did not reveal what charges police have allegedly leveled against her.

“FDLE agents have been working with her attorney to have her turn herself in,” spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger told Florida Today. “Our case remains active. Once she turns herself in, we’ll be able to provide additional information.”

State officials said Jones was fired for insubordination. Jones said the allegations and December raid, during which agents confiscated her computer hardware and phone, was “a lie” after the FDLE found no evidence that she had attempted to send a message to remaining employees, urging them to “speak out.”

“However, police did find documents I received/downloaded from sources in the state, or something of that nature... it isn’t clear at this point what exactly they’re saying I had that I shouldn’t have had,” she tweeted.
