FLORIDA Governor Grants Full Clemency to Thousands of Victims of Mask Nazis
Florida's governor on Wednesday night announced live on air clemency for everyone in his state who is being punished for violating COVID rules.
Ron DeSantis, the Republican governor of the state, appeared on Fox News to make the announcement.
He was flanked by Mike and Jillian Carnevale, gym owners from Plantation, Florida, who were repeatedly arrested for refusing to enforce a mask mandate.
The state itself didn't have mask mandates, as DeSantis spoke strongly against them throughout the height of the pandemic, but individual counties and municipalities did have them, despite DeSantis inveighing against them.
Now, people who were ensnared by the local rules will have their slates wiped clean, DeSantis said.
