Pennsylvania Dem unloads on GOPers who pushed to reopen as they hid colleague’s COVID-19 infection

Published

on

Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims (D) lashed out at Republican lawmakers who remained silent after testing positive for COVID-19.

Democrats this week accused Republicans of withholding information after Rep. Andrew Lewis (R) tested positive for the virus.

“It’s been a week, perhaps longer, that House Republican leadership knew that at least one of their members had tested positive for COVID-19,” Sims explained in a Facebook post. “But they didn’t go on quarantine until they were done serving alongside us, especially those of us that serve on the State Government Committee.”

“Our gerrymandered Republican leadership has been perhaps the most active state legislature in the entire country,” he continued. “And during that time period, during the entire COVID-19 crisis, the State Government Committee has been the place where all of these f*cked up bills to pretend that it’s safe to go back to work have been going.”

According to Sims, Republican members “lined up one after one after one” to say it is safe to go back to work.

“Meanwhile during that time period, they were testing positive,” the lawmaker complained. “They were notifying one another and they didn’t notify us.”

"Call the police," the woman says in a mocking tone. "Shame me like an ass, go ahead."

"You can put it on right now, ma'am," the cameraman insists.

"I'll do that when I'm ready," she replies. "Do you understand science?"
