The Columbia State reports:
Pressley Stutts, the GOP leader who helped reshape the Greenville County Republican Party leadership, died Thursday of complications from COVID-19. He had been hospitalized since late July and admitted to the ICU on Aug. 3. He had been on a ventilator at Spartanburg Regional Hospital, suffering from pneumonia, renal failure and blood clots.
Stutts was a member of the Tea Party and helped found MySCGOP, a conservative organization intended as an alternative to the S.C. Republican Party. After Stutts tested positive for COVID and was hospitalized, he continued to post Facebook messages reaffirming his belief that masks and vaccines should not be mandated by the government.
Pressley Stutts was a fervent supporter of President Trump and steadfast in his belief against mandates for masks and vaccines. https://t.co/pwFPnr7crB

Pressley Stutts is dead.
Lin Wood indicates he will use Pressley’s death to propagate conspiracies and disseminate disinformation about Covid.
Because Lin Wood truly is an evil mother fucker.
Lin Wood’s family knows that. They have cut him out of their lives. pic.twitter.com/BVu7Dd2SJo
