Rebekah Jones of Florida, who made unfounded COVID data concerns, was permitted to run for the House again.

NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! Rebekah Jones, a former health official, is now permitted to run in the Democratic primary for the House after an appeals court in Florida overturned a lower court’s ruling.

Jones, who is seeking to represent Florida’s 1st Congressional District in the House, was struck from the ballot after a lower court determined that her late switch to a different party made her ineligible to run.

Jones first identified himself as a Democrat in April 2021 before switching to being independent in June. A final switch back to the Democratic Party on her official Federal Election Commission paperwork in August followed this.

According to the appeals court, the issue at hand was “whether the authenticity of a duly qualified candidate’s sworn party affiliation statement under section 99.021 may be contested and utilized as a basis for removal from the ballot.”

It was ruled that it couldn’t.

Rebekah Jones claimed in 2020 that she was fired from the Florida health department for not caving to pressure from the administration to manipulate COVID-19 data.

Jones rose to fame in the media in 2020 after she claimed Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration had pressured her to falsify the state’s COVID statistics.

Jones has long maintained that the Republican governor ordered the Florida Department of Health to falsify coronavirus counts so that the state could reopen at the height of the pandemic.

Inspector General Michael J. Bennett, who looks into whistleblower complaints in the Sunshine State, deemed her account fake after conducting an internal report .

The report stated that the “claimed conduct, as described by the complainant, did not occur based upon an appraisal of the available evidence.”

Rebekah Jones was a regular guest on CNNs since-canceled "Cuomo Prime Time."

From May 2020 to December 2020, Jones made at least nine separate on-air appearances on CNN shows, most often on “Cuomo Prime Time.”

Former CNN star Chris Cuomo made Jones a semiregular on the show, speaking to her on at least five occasions. Other outlets, including MSNBC, Miami Herald, The Washington Post and NBC News helped build Jones profile, and she received an adoring profile in Cosmopolitan.
