PA state democrat accuses GOP of covering up positive Covid test

Pennsylvania state Rep. Brian Sims and his Democratic colleagues are accusing Republican leaders of keeping a Republican lawmaker’s positive coronavirus test from them for a week and not informing them that a handful of GOP members were quarantining as a result.
In a statement, Republican state Rep. Andrew Lewis confirmed he tested positive for Covid-19 on May 20 and immediately began self-isolating after working to notify anyone he had contact with while in the Capitol. Democratic Leader Frank Dermody told CNN he and other Democrats found out about Lewis’ positive test May 27 — after Lewis said he had finished his self-isolation and announced his diagnosis publicly.

    CNN any comment on this fake news? You people LOVE to manipulate it, trying to lie to your Liberal viewers (who are stupid enough to believe it).

    … Oh, another quick question. How does it feel to lose over 200 MILLION dollars in a lawsuit for making fake news? That must suck. Wanna see MORE fake news by the Liberal media, here you go! Don't you just LOVE the hypocrisy? They are talking about how nobody is wearing a mask, saying "I guess they don't care about people's health" … meanwhile HALF the crew isn't even wearing a mask! hahaha!!

    The last time I heard about Pennsylvania Democrats was a few weeks ago, when they were openly caught inflating Coronavirus death numbers.

    The guy didn’t even know he was positive until after he was in the capitol. Obviously that sounds like it was unintentional. Just because you’re outraged doesn’t mean you’re any more justified. It was an accident, and if any of the democrats make the same mistake, we have the right to be just as livid as you are. [But the media won’t cover it because they can’t possibly say anything bad about democrats]

    Right? Every republican was made in Hell. I have proof. I hate them because I am supposed to hate them! Fall in line people. If you don't hate conservatives you belong in Hell too. They molest babies in newborn rooms. They have sex with people in comas, and they abort babies right up until birth! Oh wait……

    OH NOES! He tested positive for a disease that has a less than 1% mortality rate! And a 95% recovery rate!

    But please… yell and scream. That will solve the problem.

    BTW, has anyone died from this?

    The republican party is the problem. Trump isn't the problem. Mitch Mcconnell, Lindsey Graham, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Nikki Haley, Susan Collins… Trump just overtook that party because they are cowards. They are that evil, but too coward to come out and actually do what Trump lacks the brain and control not to do. Trump is evil but also pretty mentally unstable. He has no control. The rest are just evil.

    the lie of hiding behind the HIPAA is complete and utter BS on the part of the GOP. Let's remember we learnt that members of the White House tested positive we weren't initially given names when those details came out, we were informed a valet tested positive a member of the VP's staff tested positive we were then given names at a later point. So the GOP could have made a very simple statement of "A member of the house has tested positive for the coronavirus." instead they are hiding behind a pathetic excuse that endangered members of the house.
