What did Kate Coyne-McCoy say about Lindsey Graham?

On August 2, 2021, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, 66, revealed he had tested positive for COVID-19, despite being vaccinated.

“I was just informed by the House physician I have tested positive for COVID-19 even after being vaccinated,” Graham said.

“I started having flu-like symptoms Saturday night and went to the doctor this morning.  I feel like I have a sinus infection and at present time I have mild symptoms. I will be quarantining for 10 days.”

Graham added, “I am very glad I was vaccinated because without vaccination I am certain I would not feel as well as I do now. My symptoms would be far worse.”

Following Graham's announcement, Coyne-McCoy tweeted her feelings on the situation.

“It’s wrong to hope he dies from Covid right? Asking for a friend. #COVIDISNOTOVER #LINDSEYGRAHAM,” Coyne-McCoy wrote.

The tweet was soon taken down but not before Matthew Foldi, a reporter for the Free Beacon posted a screenshot.

“The de facto executive director of the @RIDemParty apparently wants #SCEN @LindseyGrahamSC to die of coronavirus,” Foldi wrote along with the picture.

Rhode Island Democratic Party Chair Joe McNamara revealed to radio host Gene Valicenti that the party will be "reviewing her contract" following her actions.

"The state Democratic party does not wish ill will on anyone and her statement does not reflect, in any way, the values of the Democratic Party. It was a stupid thing to do," McNamara continued.

It is unknown what actions the Rhode Island Democratic party might take regarding her controversial tweet.
