60 Minutes exposes DeSantis vaccine favoritism

The vaccine favoritism questions swirling around Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis received a national spotlight Sunday when the popular CBS news program "60 Minutes" took an in-depth look at the issue, with the report highlighting how the governor's campaign donors were involved in the vaccine rollout.

The "60 Minutes" report touched on a controversial vaccine pop-up clinic in Lakewood Ranch that drew a federal complaint, which was first reported by the USA TODAY Network; the state's arrangement with Publix to distribute vaccine, and the disparity in vaccine distribution in Palm Beach County.

Vaccine favoritism questions have dogged the governor since the early days of the rollout, starting with the state's January partnership with Publix, which donated $100,000 to the governor's political committee in December, to conduct vaccinations.
