Baugh-Jensen vaccine texts suggest political motivations?

The text messages exchanged between Manatee County Commission Chair Vanessa Baugh and ‎Schroeder-Manatee Ranch Inc. President and CEO Rex Jensen regarding the pop-up vaccine distribution site they helped Gov. Ron DeSantis establish at the Premier Sports Campus in Lakewood Ranch in mid-February suggest there may have been political motivations involved in those efforts.

One text exchange between Baugh and Jensen alludes to Gov. Ron DeSantis’ possible 2022 reelection bid and how the Lakewood Ranch vaccine clinic might benefit the governor politically. That specific exchange can be found on page 26 of the PDF document below that contains 35 pages of Baugh’s text message records, which also include exchanges with Commissioner Carol Whitmore, Public Safety Director Jake Saur, Information Outreach Manager Nick Azzara and others.

The media when they attempt to take chicken s*** and make it into chicken salad. Can we all finally admit that politics played a role here and it also benefited the community with an additional $3,000 vaccinations?
Really how do you portray something as evil when it brought so much good? The only punishment commissioner Baugh requires is a lesson in humility, well that’s been delivered. Now find something else to report on, how about the 2,995 others that were vaccinated?

Baugh has failed to uphold her oath of office.
She used critical vaccines for personal benefit. I care!!!
