Hurray for my congressional rep, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, for calling out that quack Florida surgeon general! [View all]

Wasserman Schultz calls for replacement of Florida's surgeon general over (Broward County) measles outbreak

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz held a press conference on school safety measures Tuesday and called for the replacement of Florida's surgeon general as the measles outbreak in South Florida continued to expand.

At a news conference, Wasserman Schultz called for the termination of Dr. Joseph Ladapo and for Gov. Ron DeSantis to replace him with a public health expert, following the surgeon general's controversial handling of the outbreak.

Ladapo told parents of unvaccinated children that it is their choice whether their students attend class — a contravention of federal guidelines calling for their mandatory exclusion.

"Surgeon General Ladapo is a misinformation super-spreader," Wasserman Schultz said during the press conference.
