Election official who supervised voting despite positive Covid-19 test has died.

An election official who supervised voting in a suburb of St. Louis despite having tested positive for the coronavirus has died, officials there announced on Thursday, raising concerns for 2,000 voters who passed through the site on Election Day.

The official, an election judge supervisor, worked closely with nine other election workers in St. Charles, which is roughly 25 miles outside St. Louis. The authorities have advised them to be tested. They said the supervisor had not come in close contact with voters.

The supervisor — whose name, gender and age were not released — received a positive test result on Oct. 30 from a private lab and was advised to quarantine, but ignored that advice, according to a statement from the county. No cause of death was given for the death.

Kurt Bahr, the county director of elections, said judges were not screened before reporting to election sites, and had not been told not to come to work if they were supposed to be in quarantine — “for the simple reason that we did not think that needed to be said.”

3. OBVIOUSLY a republican who thought COVID is no more serious than the flu.

Obviously a brainwashed trumpanzee.

The dictator in chief has tried to kill off every one of his supporters. I've been wondering if these spikes in cases we're seeing all across the country aren't a result of the trump rallies.
