Southwest Michigan Republicans test positive for COVID-19 after district meeting

At least four, and potentially more than eight, Michigan Republicans who attended a district meeting at a Portage restaurant on March 25 tested positive for COVID-19 afterward, according to GOP officials.

Jason Watts, an Allegan County Republican and the treasurer for the 6th District Republican Committee, has been in the hospital for five days. He tested positive for COVID-19 on April 1 and is certain he was exposed to the virus at the regular meeting of the district organization, he said in a Tuesday phone interview from a hospital room in Grand Rapids.

"This meeting is what's happening in a lot of districts," Watts said. "They're not following the guidelines. I would say, at most, that room should have had 40 people there.

"The people in charge did not care."

...

Watts said about 69 people attended the March 25 meeting, which also featured Republican supporters of former President Donald Trump who unsuccessfully attempted to remove him as treasurer over comments he made in The New York Times in February. Watts told the newspaper he didn't vote for Trump. In 2020, he said he cast his ballot for the Libertarian nominee.

2. Play stupid games...

Why are Republicans so invested in denying Science? I really don't get it.

6. Well, sadly this may be good news.

I do not want to wish the covid on anyone but, it couldn't happen to a better man.
It appears the QAnon crowd is trying to take over the republican party. Also good news?
