Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo confirmed by Florida Senate

RELATED VIDEO ABOVE: Democrats walk out of hearing for controversial FL Surgeon General nominee Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo has been officially confirmed to his position.Senate Republicans on Wednesday approved the nomination of the state’s top doctor over criticism that his opposition to coronavirus mandates is too aligned to the politics of Gov. Ron DeSantis. Ladapo, who was appointed by DeSantis in September, has drawn intense scrutiny over his shared resistance with the governor against COVID-19 mandates for vaccines and masks and other health policies endorsed by the federal government. His confirmation capped a legislative process that had Ladapo appear before two Senate committees for hearings that grew contentious when Democrats accused him of dodging questions and not doing enough to promote vaccines. Florida Agricultural Commissioner Nikki Fried, a Democrat running for governor, released the following statement on Ladapo’s conformation: “As I’ve said before, I believe Dr. Ladapo is an anti-science quack who doesn’t belong anywhere near our state’s Surgeon General office, let alone running it. But now that he’s been confirmed, it’s my sincere hope that he and Governor DeSantis choose to focus on saving lives and preventing unnecessary illness instead of continuing their absurd promotion of conspiracy theories and opposition to proven public health measures – but I’m not going to hold my breath. ”
