      of Covid, after her ‘followers’ sent thousands of emails to hospital demanding she get Ivermectin (which I KNOW, in a MANY ways moves this report into peoples’ cray-cray.

      Yes, I know that this is something of an unusual fit, but it’s true that she was once such a noted Bernie activist that Bernie invited her dinner with him back in the ’16 race. If you’re an Illinois or midwestern Bernie supporter you may have heard of her. My SO, who volunteered many hundreds of hours to Bernie, knew her during that time.

      For a long time she staked out a bridge over the inbound interstate (iirc it was on the Eisenhower or Congress) into Chicago, and plastered it with Bernie messages for morning commuters. She did many interviews with news outlets as “The Bridge Lady”. She stood down motorist complaints and police following those up to keep her vigil for Bernie going.

      Then, something went seriously wrong, and she got twisted. Feeling that Bernie had caved into the Hillarycrats, over a period of months she became more and more involved in conspiracies, ultimately Q-anon and deeply into alternate news sources.

      Since the pandemic started she’s been at her “People’s Bridge” with signage of basic conspiracy crap, anti-vax crap, and generally dismissing Covid as a serious disease.

      She died on a ventilator in a hospital in the early hours of Monday morning.

      If I get Covid, I sincerely hope my doctor would prescribe Ivermectin.

      As might be expected, the details of her treatment, which may have included other treatments (convalescent antibodies, steroids, remdesivir, etc) weren’t shared publicly.

      I suppose we’ll wait on that until and if a future lawsuit brings all that out in court.
