GOP Anti-Vax Cultist Allen West Is Sick With Something

The Daily Beast reports:

Right-winger Allen West has suspended in-person events for his Texas gubernatorial campaign because he developed COVID symptoms after his wife tested positive.

In a Saturday morning Twitter thread, the Trump-loving ex-congressman said he has not gotten the COVID vaccine but is “already taking Hydrochloroquine and Ivermectin protocols”—two unproven drugs popular with the anti-vaxxer crowd.

West protested outside Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s mansion against COVID restrictions last year and then announced this summer that he was running for his seat. He abruptly quit as chairman of the Texas GOP in June after just a year—a tenure marked by his adoption of a slogan that mirrors QAnon language.
