G.O.P. Lawmaker Had the Virus. Nobody Told Democrats Exposed to Him

Pennsylvania State Legislature: Long story short: repuke has the virus, tells fellow republicans, they all decide not to tell the Democrats who were exposed from the repuke.
Link to story in NY Times.
I read almost all the comments. “New low” is repeated over and over.
The republican motive? Probably to avoid embarrassment over their position to not wearing masks, playing down the virus, etc.

Awhile back there was a story of some a-hole going into a store and licking items and coughing on people to try and spread the virus. That person was arrested and hit with some kind of assault charge. This situation seems pretty much the same to me but I’m not going to hold my breath that the repuke will be charged – different standards of justice.

Mary Mallon (September 23, 1869 – November 11, 1938), also known as Typhoid Mary, was an Irish-born cook believed to have infected 53 people, three of whom died, with typhoid fever, and the first person in the United States identified as an asymptomatic carrier of the disease. Because she persisted in working as a cook, by which she exposed others to the disease, she was twice forcibly quarantined by authorities, and died after a total of nearly three decades in isolation. Presumably, she was born with typhoid because her mother was infected during pregnancy.
I am sure there are some old obscure laws on the books to have this fuck arrested.

Several Democratic state representatives are calling for the resignation of Republican leaders, including House Speaker Mike Turzai (R-Marshall), who did not inform their Democratic colleagues that Rep. Andrew Lewis (R-Dauphin) tested positive for COVID-19. Though Lewis has been quarantining at home since May 18, he was last on the House floor on May 14, not wearing a mask…
On Wed., May 27, Lewis announced on his Facebook page that he had tested positive for COVID-19 on May 20 and has now recovered from his mild symptoms. He wrote that he used the CDC guidelines to determine who he may have exposed and contacted them accordingly…
But several representatives are claiming that not a single Democratic member of the General Assembly was informed of Lewis’ diagnosis, including those who work with him on a committee. And while Lewis claims he was wearing a mask when he was last on the house floor on May 14, photo evidence shows him addressing the room without a mask on.
Two other House members, Reps. Russ Diamond (R-Lebanon) and Frank Ryan (R-Lebanon) are currently in quarantine due to possible exposure to the virus via Lewis, according to the Pennsylvania Capital-Star. Footage of House meetings shows Diamond and Ryan also not wearing masks on the floor. Earlier this month, Diamond bragged about going shopping without wearing a mask, saying “so much winning.”

Dude is creeping like someone knowingly having an STD and not telling their partner as they do them, while of course bragging about it with their friends.

He is – understandably – LIVID. Absolutely livid.
