House Freedom Caucus Chair Is Sick With Something

Penn Live reports:

Congressman Scott Perry has tested positive for COVID-19, his office announced on Tuesday. The office of the 10th congressional district Republican said in a statement that the lawmaker’s symptoms are mild.

“Like so many of our friends and neighbors, Congressman Perry has tested positive for COVID-19. As directed by the House Physician, he will continue working while quarantining at home. His symptoms are quite mild, and he’s looking forward to a full recovery,” the statement read.

In September Perry posted to Facebook: “Folks, if you want the vaccine, by all means, get the vaccine. But if you don’t want the vaccine, you shouldn’t have to worry about being forced or fired. Not nurses, not docs, not First Responders, not our Troops. Consent, never coercion.”

Yesterday Perry was elected to succeed Rep. Andy Biggs as chairman of the House Freedom Caucus.

Perry last appeared on JMG when compared Democrats to Nazis and urged his followers to “go fight them.”

Perry’s office is refusing to say if he’s vaccinated, calling it a “personal medical decision.”
