A White House official and a member of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's staff have tested positive for COVID-19 after a reception where they met with infected Texas state representatives that boarded a private plane to avoid voting on a law for election integrity.
The Pelosi staffer helped usher a delegation of Democratic Texas lawmakers around the Capitol last week. Six of those lawmakers, who flew to Washington to block the Texas legislature from changing the state's voting laws, have since tested positive.
Both that staffer and the White House official were at the same rooftop reception at the Hotel Eaton last Wednesday night.
The White House official has not had any recent direct contact with President Biden. The Pelosi aide did not have any contact with the speaker since that person's exposure.
Shortly after broadcasting their escape – complete with beers and no masks – three of the Democratic representatives tested positive for COVID-19.
Another three tested positive shortly thereafter, followed by the two new cases. All of the infected were vaccinated and are reportedly having mild cases.
You've gotta love the hypocrisy here!
If you haven't understood the double standard in our media (AKA that our media are all leftists that want leftists in power), note how this story will be a small blip in the reporting cycle.
If it were a conservative bunch of lawmakers, however, we'd still be hearing about this "dangerous super-spreader" six months from now:
At least these stunning and brave legislators can look forward to being arrested by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for dereliction of duty and the subversion of Democracy when they return home!
