Didn’t Joe Biden and the CDC just tell us this is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated”?
Two more fully vaccinated Texas state lawmakers tested positive for Covid-19 this weekend after fleeing to DC, bringing the total cases to five.
On Monday at least 58 Democrat members of the state House of Representatives fled Texas to Washington DC to block Republicans from advancing new voting laws through a special session of the legislature.
Democrat lawmakers were seen packed on a private plane, maskless flying from Texas to DC.
The Austin American-Statesman reported:
Two more Texas Democrats tested positive for the coronavirus Sunday, bringing the total number of cases among the nearly 60 lawmakers in Washington up to five.
State Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer of San Antonio said in a statement that he was one of the two members to test positive for the virus on Sunday, after testing negative on both Friday and Saturday.
The Texas House Democratic Caucus is not naming the individuals who have tested positive, but officials with the party said all of the lawmakers in Washington have been vaccinated, including those who are now infected.
Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, one of the state lawmakers who tested positive for Covid today, said he is experiencing “extremely mild symptoms” and will quarantine until he tests negative.
Kamala Harris met with the Texas state lawmakers twice this weekend before checking into Walter Reed Sunday morning.
According to the White House, Kamala Harris went to Walter Reed for a ‘routine appointment.’
