Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says he will parson anybody living in the state who was arrested for violating Covid-19 restrictions.
The governor tweeted out his intentions.
“Floridians should not be penalized for rejecting the overreach of local authorities through unnecessary mask mandates,” tweeted DeSantis.
He also referred to the case of Mike and Jillian Carnevale. The couple was arrested for not requiring masks in their gym.
“As soon as I heard that Mike and Jillian Carnevale were facing criminal penalties, like possible jail time, for not requiring masks at their gym, I stepped in to shield them from this local government overreach,” DeSantis tweeted.
Trial had been set in the Carnevale case for next week.
