Brian Sims Slams GOP Speaker in Expletive Laced 12-Minute Video for Hiding Positive COVID-19 Status from Dems: WATCH

Out Pennsylvania state representative Brian Sims went on expletive laced tirade in a 12-minute Facebook Live after learning that the GOP speaker of the House informed fellow Republicans but not Democrats that at least one member of his caucus tested positive for COVID-19.

‪“I’ve spent so much of my time here trying to see beyond the blind, disgusting partisanship, and now that partisanship has grown deadly,” state Rep. Brian Sims said.

According to Rolling Stone, “Democrats only recently became aware that a Republican colleague tested positive for the virus but continued to work in the capitol for at least a week. Sims angrily yelled into the camera accusing Republicans of endangering members, their staffs, and their families.’I’m right now surrounded by members that can’t go see their kids, that are having to call their husbands, having to call their wives and saying, ‘Honey, I might have exposed you and everybody I love in the world because one of my colleagues tested positive, but he was protecting his family but not protecting mine, and Republican leadership protected him,’ Sims raged, at times pounding on his desk to emphasize his points.”

“Fuck, I’ve spent so much of my time here trying to see beyond the blind, disgusting partisanship, and now that partisanship has grown deadly,” Sims said.

Sims also called on House Speaker Mike Terzai to resign.
