Tallahassee — In response to 60 Minutes’ explosive report about Gov. Ron DeSantis’s disastrous vaccine rollout, former Congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel Powell made the following statement:
“Ron DeSantis has got to go. As tonight’s explosive reporting makes clear, Governor DeSantis has been favoring the wealthy and well connected over regular Floridians, giving his donors special access to the coronavirus vaccine. This is corruption that endangers the health of countless Floridians, and it borders on criminal. It should be no surprise that Florida’s Black and Hispanic communities are struggling to get the vaccine — it’s literally DeSantis’s policy to put everyday Floridians at the back of the line. This dereliction of duty is one of the greatest failures of leadership in Florida history.”
