Whatcha hiding Lindsey?
Courtesy of The Hill:
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Jaime Harrison, his Democratic opponent, will not debate Friday night as scheduled over a disagreement over taking coronavirus tests before they face off against each other.
The event was scrapped after Harrison said he would not participate in the debate unless Graham was tested for COVID-19 before they met, a request Graham denied. The two will instead participate in separate 30-minute forums on local station WSPA in Spartanburg.
The decision on the separate interviews marks the end of a whirlwind 24 hours in which Harrison maintained the COVID-19 test was a safety issue, while Graham fired back that the Democrat was trying to make a last-minute change to rules to which the two campaign had already agreed.
This is how Graham responded to that request on Twitter.
Mr. Harrison is demanding special treatment.
Other than Mr. Harrison, is any other South Carolinian demanding every person they come in contact with be tested before they meet?

Is it really special treatment to want to ensure that you do not catch a communicable disease that is currently ravaging your country?
That just seems like common sense to me.
Graham is not alone by the way. There are a number of GOP politicians who are refusing to be tested or not answering questions as to when they were last tested.
That makes me wonder just how many of them might be hiding the fact that they are positive?
