Democratic Strategist Regrets For Whishing GOP Senator Die From Covid
Fully vaccinated Republican lawmaker Lindsey Graham was quarantined for 10 days after experiencing mild Covid-19 symptoms on Monday. As soon as this became known, liberal strategist Kate Coyne-McCoy wished Graham die from Covid.
Following the hate post, Twitter users criticized Coyne-McCoy and she had to delete the post.
The next day, Kate Coyne-McCoy tweeted an apology.
I made a mistake. I used poor judgement which I obviously regret.— katecoynemccoy (@katecoynemccoy) August 3, 2021
Regardless, House Minority Leader Rep. Blake Filippi called on Democrats to punish Kate Coyne-McCoy for her big mouth.
If @rigopchairwoman or any RIGOP official were to say anything like this, I would immediately and publicly demand their resignation. Hoping my Democratic House colleagues do the right thing here. pic.twitter.com/yGtA7cil2i— Rep. Blake Filippi (@Blake_Filippi) August 3, 2021
