Florida GOP Leader Rips Into DeSantis’ Hand Picked Surgeon General For His Unprofessional Behavior

Despite the fact that COVID has long surged in his state, Ron DeSantis has done little to stop the spread. In fact, he has made moves that make it harder to combat the virus. One of those moves was nominating a surgeon general who fights back against mask mandates and pushes vaccine hesitancy.

That surgeon general, Joseph Ladapo, recently had an incident where he was kicked out of a state senators office for refusing the wear a mask. That senator, Democrat Tina Polsky, is currently battling breast cancer. Following the incident, Republican state senator Wilton Simpson sent out a memo blasting Ladapo.

Simpson, the Florida State Senate leader, wrote, “it shouldn’t take a cancer diagnosis for people to respect each other’s level of comfort with social interactions during a pandemic.”

The note continued, “What occurred in Senator Polksy’s office was unprofessional and will not be tolerated in the Senate. While there is no mask mandate in the Senate, Senators and staff can request social distancing and masking within their own offices. If visitors to the Senate fail to respect these requests, they will be asked to leave.”

Interestingly enough, Ladapo has not yet been confirmed for his position. According to Christine Jordan Sexton from Florida Politics, this could put his nomination in jeopardy.
