Pennsylvania House Republicans Hide Positive Status From Dem Colleagues

Just in case anyone still thought the problem was just Trump:



(Read the whole thread, it's...a beaut.)

House Democratic Leader Frank Dermody said he and other House members were shocked to learn that Republican Rep. Andrew Lewis found out he tested positive for COVID-19 on May 20 and they only learned about it on Wednesday.

Lewis, 33, said he has completed his 14-day self-isolation dating to the time when the Dauphin County Republican believes he may have been exposed. He said he is now fully recovered from the mild flu-like symptoms he experienced from the coronavirus.

“While we are pleased to learn that this House member seems to have recovered, it is simply unacceptable that some House Republicans knew about this for more than a week and sat on that knowledge,” said Dermody of Allegheny County.

5. They might have expected this behavior, and perhaps aren't really as shocked

as claimed. When today's Repubs get power in the U.S. congress, no expression of spite is too small, or too big. They're famous for it, everything from stuff that concerns the nation and makes headlines to removing Dems from a notification that a bathroom is going to be closed for painting.
