Just The News: The Florida scientist accused by the state of manipulating coronavirus data says she’ll turn in herself, in response to an arrest warrant being prepared by authorities.
The data scientist, Rebekah Jones, said she would turn herself in Sunday night. However, it was unclear Monday morning whether she had.
In November, law enforcement raided the home of Jones, one of the data scientists who helped make Florida’s COVID-19 dashboard.
“To protect my family from continued police violence, and to show that I’m ready to fight whatever they throw at me, I’m turning myself into police in Florida Sunday night,” Jones tweeted Saturday. “The Governor will not win his war on science and free speech. He will not silence those who speak out.” read more
