Top Florida Democrat On Gov. Cuomo’s ‘Cover Up’: ‘We Would Never Have Gotten Away With That’

A top Florida Democrat who led the state’s pandemic response is warning his party against believing conspiracies about Florida’s handling of COVID-19.

Jared Moskowitz announced on Monday that he is retiring as director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management, which he has led since Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) appointed Moskowitz to the post in January 2019. In his outgoing remarks, Moskowitz defended Florida’s pandemic response while contrasting it with New York’s, which has been routinely praised in the media and by awards commissions.

 “You may see a conspiracy theory and you want it to be true and you believe it to be true and you forward it to try to make it be true. But that doesn’t make it true,” Moskowitz told Politico. “We’ve seen this, quite frankly, within the last four years with the previous administration.”

“But Democrats should not be so naive to think that they don’t accidentally participate in things like that — for instance when they forward things around that falsely claim Florida has more deaths than New York when it comes to coronavirus. That is just not supported by the data,” Moskowitz continued.

“And in fact, for all the stuff about how Florida was not being transparent, it’s not Florida that’s in the national news. It’s New York, that’s in the national news, and it was New York that had a cover up for the last six months, and hid 50% of the nursing home deaths. We would never have gotten away with that for 15 days in Florida, let alone six months,” he pointed out.
