This afternoon, our progressive friends throughout social media have been feigning concern for the health of a Jeff City politico's wife. The political reality is much more deceitful.
Guv Parson has rejected a mask mandate for Missouri and his alleged mishandling of the virus has been a talking point for Missouri Democratic Party boosters. Sadly, they're still trailing according to recent polling.
NOW, the unfortunate diagnosis of his wife is now quickly becoming a down ballot and INTENSELY PERSONAL campaign argument against his leadership.
Here on TKC, we wish her well and advise that ghoulish rhetoric rarely earns votes in Missouri unless it's really funny . . . In this case the only punchline is that pandemic didn't change much about red state politics despite quite a few riots and partisan slap fighting.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.- The Office of Governor Parson has confirmed with Ozarks First that Missouri First Lady Teresa Parson has tested positive for COVID-19. According to Kelli Jones, Governor Parson's Communication Director, Mrs. Parson showed mild symptoms for a while and got a rapid test. Those results came back positive.
