GOP Rep Accused Of Poking Female Dem In The Back And Saying “Kiss My Ass” When Asked To Wear Mask

Mediaite reports:

Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH) said on Twitter that Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) made a less than gentlemanly comment to her at the Capitol on Tuesday.

Beatty claimed that when she asked Rogers to put a mask on while boarding the train under the Capitol, he responded by poking her in the back and telling her to get on. When she asked Rogers not to touch her, Beatty said he replied, “Kiss my ass.”

She tweeted about the alleged incident and even put Rogers on blast by including his Twitter handle.
