Grifters of the Left

Ron DeSantis Foe Rebekah Jones Has Her Latest Grift Shut Down in Glorious Fashion

If you’ve followed the politics surrounding COVID-19 for any length of time, you are probably aware of a woman named Rebekah Jones, and depending on your source, you may or may not be completely misinformed.

The liberal media elevated Jones after she claimed to be a “data scientist” who was fired by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for not agreeing to cover up the Sunshine State’s “real” COVID data. She appeared on CNN many times, including being a favorite of Chris Cuomo. Numerous press outlets also gave her credibility, using her “data scientist” title as a way to push the idea that she was a person of authority.

Reality painted a far different picture, though. Jones was actually just a state employee who input data into Florida’s COVID dashboard. She is not a “scientist” and she has never provided an ounce of evidence that she was asked to falsify data. Her whistleblower claims were shot down earlier in 2022, effectively ending her campaign against DeSantis and the state he leads.

By that time, though, Jones had already moved on to her next grift: Running for Congress as a Democrat against GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz. That came to an end on Friday after a judge shut down her campaign.

A Florida judge is disqualifying Rebekah Jones from challenging Rep. Matt Gaetz for his seat in Congress, and the hearing featured some tense moments.

Leon Circuit Court Judge John Cooper from the bench said Jones could not run as a Democrat because she had not been a registered Democrat for 365 days before qualifying as a candidate for Congress.

“I don’t think I can come to any conclusion other than this,” Cooper said. “Jones was not a registered member of the Democratic Party almost two months during this period.”
