In Pennsylvania, a Democratic state legislator has accused some of his Republican colleagues of covering up their COVID-19 status and potentially putting other lawmakers at risk. A video of state Representative Brian Sims talking about the situation has gone viral.
Rep. Brian Sims: “First of all, Mike Turzai, the speaker of the House, needs to resign, and any member of leadership that has known what was going on. Any member of Republican leadership that knew that members were testing positive, that other members were being quarantined, and did not tell those of us who were exposed to those members, needs to be investigated by the attorney general. And I think that there needs to be prosecutions.”
