WA GOP Continues Politicizing Public Health Crisis
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | May 5, 2020
SEATTLE — In response to a group of Republican state legislators filing a baseless lawsuit challenging Governor Inslee’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy order in a transparent attempt to politicize the ongoing public health crisis, Tina Podlodowski, Chair of the Washington State Democratic Party issued the following statement:
“This is yet another irresponsible action from Washington State Republicans that jeopardizes the sacrifices so many Washingtonians have made to save lives in the fight against this virus.
As Democrats across all of Washington remain committed to following the science and advice of public health experts to reopen our state safely, Republicans continue to be guided by the most extreme parts of their party, pushing dangerous ideas like mass infection and violent rebellion.
Today and every day until this November’s election, we’ll make sure Washingtonians know who was on their side and who put their lives in danger to score cheap political points.”
