#1 Like, who cares about her proclivities? If she refused to alter data, good for her. Weird that the article lists a bunch of stuff totally irrelevant vis-a-vis the COVID-19 stats.

#2 No one asked her to alter data. They asked her to temporarily disable the export capability until they had verified the data.

She also didn't "lead" anyone. She was a data entry clerk managing entering the data into a commercial service that generates the reports for you. She was the lowest ranking person on the team, and could have been replaced with anyone computer literate.

#3  Like, who cares about her proclivities?

It speaks to patterns of behavior.
Whacky in uno, Whacky in omnibus, or however that Latin saying goes.

Nice summary, by the way, Rob. 'Tis a pity actual journalists can't do as well.

#4 She gave birth to a little girl in mid-2018

Better than giving birth to a full sized girl, I suppose.

#6 "Rebekah Jones led a team of Florida Department of Health scientists and public health officers..."

So how could she be the "lowest-ranking member" of a team that she lead??

Definitely seems like a weirdo, but is the story about her refusing to alter stats or a biography/rap sheet of her?

#11 She's getting the media darling treatment, so the truth takes a bit of digging.

#13 From Frank G.’s link:

Jones has not alleged any tampering with data on deaths, hospital symptom surveillance, hospitalizations for COVID-19, numbers of new confirmed cases, or overall testing rates — core elements of any assessment of the outbreak and of federal criteria for reopening. And Jones acknowledges Florida has been relatively transparent — for which she herself claims some credit — and relatively successful in controlling the pandemic.

She has, however, suggested Health Department managers wanted her to manipulate information to paint a rosier picture and that she pushed back. In an interview late Friday on CNN she finally cited some detail, after several days of vague statements.

#14 Linda Tripp = lying skank, according to the media

Paula Jones = lying skank, according to the media

Tara Reed = lying skank, according to the media

Blasey Ford = heroic truth teller, according to media

Julie Swetnick = only Avenatti would touch that one.

Stormie Daniels = only Avenatti would touch that one.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders = lying skank, according to the media

Kayleigh McEnany = lying skank, according to the media.

See the pattern?

#15 In an interview late Friday on CNN she finally cited some detail, after several days of vague statements.

Yes. Florida is not New York, New Jersey or Michigan. I'm sure she's lawyered up now and walking a tight rope. It will be a contest between her lawyer's advice and CNN's editors' coaching. She gets it wrong, some part of her anatomy will be caught in a wringer.
