Republican House Rep. Sainz says he had difficulty getting his COVID test results back from last week, so he followed protocol and watched the day via livestream. COVID safety measures are not “partisan” or something to be used as “a plea for attention,” he says. #gapol
@CongressmanHice @SpeakerPelosi @SenatorLeahy [email protected] #GA10...why are you defending #DonaldTrump?
Where is your loyalty to the oath you took? Where is your loyalty to #Georgia?

COVID has sickened more than 722,000 Georgians and killed nearly 12,000. A member of the state legislature had to be escorted out by troopers today after refusing the free COVID test every other House member has taken as a safety precaution. #gapol

Georgia’s House speaker booted a fellow state rep (and political foe pictured below w no mask) from the chamber today for refusing to take twice-weekly COVID-19 tests required for all lawmakers in the 2021 legislative session. #gapol
Capitol Beat story:
More from GA Rep. David Clark defending why he won't follow COVID-19 safety protocols at the GA Capitol. Speaker Ralston has banned Clark from the chamber until he is tested and taken away his assigned office in the Capitol complex. More at 7pm on #GPBLawmakers @gpbnews #gapol
Also, shows that 200 Georgians lost jobs in Dec 2020, across non-education, state govt jobs. Over 2,000 Georgians have lost non-education state govt jobs since Dec 2019, with no help from GA's austerity cuts in its FY2021 budget #StateJobsDay #gapol
@RepScottHolcomb It seems @RepDavidTClark cares nothing for the health safety of @GaHouseHub & staff. He is potentially endangering others in our Capitol & surrounding areas. #DavidTCarter needs to be barred from the grounds until he agrees to comply.

Today's BLS #StateJobsReport shows positive overall job growth in Dec (+44,700), but shows a sobering trend among GA govt jobs. 1,700 Georgians lost jobs in State Govt Educational Services in Dec 2020 & nearly 10,000 have lost jobs since Dec 2019. #gapol
Georgia has not yet reached the halfway point in giving first doses of COVID-19 vaccines to the roughly 2 million people currently eligible more than a month after the state’s distribution program began, Gov. Kemp said Tuesday. #gapol
Capitol Beat story:
Clark and Beach also were two of several lawmakers signed onto a brief in support of a Texas lawsuit against Georgia and other states in hopes of flipping Joe Biden's victory in Georgia/US. He also ran for Speaker vs Ralston, so no love there. #gapol @AJCGaPolitics
In case it needs to be stated ->
Racist lawmakers expelling Blacks from the chamber =/= getting booted for not getting a 2x week *free* COVID spit test so that people don't get sick and derail session (like his state Senator father-in-law did during the 2020 session)
🚨BREAKING:Lawmakers in #Canada 🇨🇦 just voted *unanimously* to call on the government to declare the Proud Boys a #terrorist group.
Not a single dissenting vote.
The US must call out these terrorists NOW.
