Democratic lawmaker calls for campaign donations to defeat COVID-stricken GOP senator

Last edited Thu Aug 26, 2021, 07:02 AM - Edit history (1)

A Madison Democratic lawmaker is facing blowback for soliciting campaign contributions to defeat Republican state Sen. Andre Jacque, a mask and vaccine mandate opponent who was hospitalized last week with COVID-19 and whom a colleague said was in need of prayers.

Jacque’s spokesperson, Matt Tompach, declined to comment on the De Pere Republican’s condition Tuesday, days after Rep. Shae Sortwell, R-Two Rivers, posted on his Facebook page asking followers to pray for Jacque, who was hospitalized on Aug. 16 after testing positive for COVID-19.

“He is in serious need of your prayers tonight,” Sortwell said Friday. “He is in the hospital with COVID-induced pneumonia.”

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, citing two people with knowledge of Jacque's condition, reported Tuesday evening that Jacque on Monday was intubated and is breathing on a ventilator.

On Aug. 17, Sen. Kelda Roys, D-Madison, tweeted in reference to Jacque’s attendance at two legislative committee meetings at the state Capitol days before his hospitalization. In at least one meeting, Jacque spoke without wearing a mask, which Roys called “selfish, irresponsible, dangerous behavior.”

1. We're always supposed to be the nicest people

Even when an anti masker antivaccer is literally hospitalized by his own bad policies. When are we allowed to say it would be really helpful if you’d make a tangible contribution to change?

3. Jacque Simply Got What He Asked For

Use prayers on people that tried to protect themselves and others.

They dont know how many his unmasked ass infected.

He was blowing Covid all over folks without telling them he felt sick. No mask. No regard for others. A perfect Republican.

4. So, do the GQP leave their Democratic opponents alone

If they are facing a tough time personally? Nope.
