Public official says she is “disgusted” by DeSantis’ “political absurdity” | News WFLA Radio


An official criticizes Governor DeSantis, saying he is playing politics with the state’s ban on so-called “vaccine passports.”

The governor said the law, which provides for fines of up to $ 5,000 for violators, includes employers. But Palm Beach County Commissioner Melissa McKinlay says the law exempts certain industries.

The governor stressed: ‘This firefighter shouldn’t lose her job, or she shouldn’t lose her job because she was forced to get the vaccine.’ Its very legislation exempted emergency medical services. “

Many firefighters also serve as paramedics and paramedics.

The commissioner says DeSantis knows best.

“I just hate to see this political nonsense played out in the media. It really goes against everything we try to do to keep our communities safe.”

She added that it “disgusted” her.

McKinlay also challenged the governor’s plans to sue the Biden administration over an unreleased executive order that would require many employers to institute vaccination warrants.

She said the president would allow employers to have workers who will not be vaccinated tested weekly, so no one would be required to get vaccinated in the supposed order.

But a Palm Beach County employer doesn’t allow the option of testing except for employees who have a medical or religious exemption. A spokesperson for the county tax collector’s office tells us there are several employees who need to be tested for COVID-19 on a regular basis.

Collector Anne Gannon recently said she had no plans to give up her restrictive tenure.
