Gov. Chris Sununu joined top State House Democrats in calling for Rep. Ken Weyler to lose his position as the House’s top budget writer due to the Republican from Kingston’s continued spread of COVID-19 misinformation. Sununu’s statement comes after Weyler, 79, emailed colleagues materials full of COVID conspiracy theories, including a discredited, false report that claims COVID deaths are driven by a plot orchestrated out of Vatican City, Washington D.C. and London.
“It’s all one huge puppet theatre, where the majority of the people — even most of those who are complicit — haven’t got the slightest clue what is going on, and how everyone is being played,” the report states. Among other false claims, the report says some COVID vaccines include “living organism(s) with tentacles.” Weyler has served in the House for 30 years, and previously told NHPR he is unvaccinated.

“I have repeatedly expressed directly to Speaker Packard about the need to remove Weyler from this position of leadership,” Sununu said. “These latest absurd emails have accelerated the urgency that the Speaker needs to take action.” via @joshrogersNHPR https://t.co/yFuvhuFVEG
