BREAKING VIDEO: DeSantis says he’ll pardon anyone in Florida charged for defying COVID rules

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced he will pardon anyone in Florida charged for defying COVID rules including not wearing masks or socially distancing.

DeSantis made the announcement while on air speaking to a gym-owning couple who were facing jail time for defying COVID rules.

“It’s a total overreach,” DeSantis said. “These things with health should be advisory, they should not be punitive,” he insisted.
