Brian Sims calls out lawmakers who tested positive and kept silent

A Pennsylvania state representative went on a profanity-laced tirade against Republican colleagues who had knowingly tested positive for COVID-19 and remained silent.

On Wednesday, Rep. Brian Sims, a Democrat from Philadelphia, released a near-12-minute Facebook video calling out GOP members who have been actively pushing to reopen the state and undermining the seriousness of the novel coronavirus.

"Every single day of this crisis this State Government Committee in Pennsylvania has met so that their members could line up one after one after one and explain that it was safe to go back to work," Sims said in the video. "During that time period they were testing positive. They were notifying one another. And they didn’t notify us."

Earlier this week coronavirus deaths exceeded 100,000 nationwide and over 5,200 in Pennsylvania.
