PA state democrat accuses GOP of covering up positive Covid test 1


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.

      DNC or Chinese troll farm?

    • That’s a pretty swooping statement coming from the party of Ben Ghazi uranium one Clintons deals on her private laptop with China, Bill Clinton flying to pedophile island with Jeffrey Epstein 23 times and Plus the 150 million black babies you killed and left dying in the sink in Planned Parenthood with their parts removed?? Are you kidding me??

    “Trump has limited cognitive ability.”

    • Kate Linwood okay I can accept that. But I think they should show it more and not be afraid of his bully tactics and worry about how he’s going to publicly criticize them. You would think that someone in the party would stand up and say enough is enough to him. I think that within a better message to the people and their constituents doing work Mitt Romney did, we need more Romney’s and less Pence and his new mouth piece.

    • Sorry for some of my spelling I am work

    • Brian will need to be contact traced now. He should be quarantined in a safe space.

      @Renee Speece That’s because you don’t know American history.

      @Mary Gates Sure it’s a great idea.
      But it moves Twitter from a platform to a publisher and therefore removes their protection against liability for what others post.
      Like Zuckerberg said, they are not the arbiters of truth.
      So, if Twitter wants to give up that protection to be able to push their political narrative, I’m all for it.
      As for their “fact check”; it’s a joke.
      They used CNN and the Washington Post, two outlets that have been caught in lie after lie for the past 4 years, to try to disprove that mail-in voter fraud doesn’t occur, when in reality it does.
      And it’s done by both sides.
      NJ had an incident that came out today and NC had an incident where the Republicans were doing it.
      So, to say that it doesn’t happen is factually false.

    • It’s fake news 💋💋

  8. A Republican is that one person in a zombie apocalypse, that would get bitten by a zombie, and hide it from the rest of the group.

    Everyone remember this one basic fact: When Trump came into office, he fired the entire pandemic response team that Obama put in place.

    • Why not remember 60.8 million swine flu infections under Obama?

    • Chris P. Bacon | May 28, 2020 at 8:37 PM | Reply

      @Dirty Red Fatalities were about 12,000 worldwide. We’ve lost over 100,000 in three months under Trump here in the US.

    • @Strange Tom They did an impeccable work with swine flu. Compare 12,000 swine flu deaths in the US with 100,000 coronavirus deaths (and still rising)

      BTW: It’s not like wiping the pandemic response team enabled Trump to keep the coronavirus deaths to below 60k (which was the initial Whitehouse projection) so you ask me, how good of a job has Trump done without the pandemic response team ?

      Racist are too evil to realize Obama probably saved their lives because of his actions.

    • Christine Welford | May 28, 2020 at 10:39 PM | Reply

      @Dirty Red for 1 they did put orders in place like hospitals and nursing homes. I should know I had my girls in 09 and no one but me and their dad could go up or in. Then when one got sick with rsv only 1 could be at hospital with her and would not allow twin in hospital and she was there for a week. So we did do things a lot better under Obama just saying wouldn’t be 100000 and counting like we are now. Also we had a vaccine too so that helped not to mention we worked with WHO and other health officials that dealt with it. unlike a new virus we are dealing with now because of it mutating like it has and as fast as it did.

  10. ALRIGHT! Finally seeing some outrage from a Democrat politician. Need more of this. 
    Instead of the steady stream of “timid objection”. (ref: Nancy Pelosi).

      Well democrats did this to themselves. You made your bed now lie in it and who are you gonna blame, the otherside

    • @ Bat Boy – Outrage because they are DIRECTLY AFFECTED! Like most Americans, its never important unless it affects u.

      The democrats and the media are being timid with POTUS. He wants to squelch Twitter because they are fact checking him. Remember he once blocked someone from his Twitter account because they disagreed with him. But Twitter said he couldn’t do that. Free speech. Now if you want to fact check him he wants to try and shut you down. But the democrats and media don’t bring this up. Spineless!!!

    When T gets the virus, we will not be told.

  12. Anytime you put someone’s life in jeopardy is not a breach of HIPPA. He jeopardized all these people lives.

    • Hippa thing is a crock. Obvious dodge.

    • HIPPA only applies to health care workers

    • xiaoka Yes, it is,

    • Riley Castro | May 28, 2020 at 10:28 PM | Reply

      Mary Gates actually that is because you are stating that someone here has a specific disease, and that could make it to where someone is outed if people look for someone who might have it, and what HIPPA states is that you must keep information to a reasonable and minimum limit for their intended purpose, which is diagnoses of the patient, so yeah, them divulging someone tested positive is a violation of HIPPA

    • Not HIPPA. More like HYPOCRITE.

  13. Got the say, these people are all crazy. Thank God for Canada!

  14. It’s almost as if the republican leadership made a deal with the devil.

    They are the Anti Mask Covid 19 Deniers, so naturally they’ll try to keep it quiet if one of them gets it! (The Republicans)

  16. Democrats finally showing teeth!! 👏🏾

    • Stop, just stop. “Finally?” No. You mean Democrats showing teeth yet again. Or perhaps, “Finally, I’m noticing they have teeth”

    • Trumptards thinks bio-warfare won’t come back to get them😈😈
