Whistleblower Rebekah Jones officially files to run for Congress

Source: WCTV

Controversial whistleblower Rebekah Jones has officially filed to run for Congress.

The Democrat will work to unseat Republican Representative Matt Gaetz in District 1.

Gaetz is facing several legal scandals, including a federal investigation over whether he had a sexual relationship with an underage girl.

The 38-year-old Panhandle area congressman denies any inappropriate relationships with minors and even claims to be the victim of an extortion scheme.

Jones, 32, a former employee with the Florida Department of Health, was fired for insubordination in 2020 in her own scandal over the state’s covid case numbers. She had announced her intent to run on social media in June.

State records show she filed the candidacy paperwork on Sept. 29.

The Flawrida panhandle is packed with brainwashed Armageddon zombies and cross burners.

They'd vote for a dead frog, if they thought it represented their "beliefs."
