Five days after a now-Covid positive Rudy Giuliani farted and spat his way through a Michigan House hearing full of maskless Republicans, Speaker Lee Chatfield is canceling voting and attendance at Tuesday's session.
Chatfield, R-Levering, released the following statement, as reported by The Detroit News:
"Multiple representatives have requested time to receive results from recent COVID-19 tests before returning to session, out of an abundance of caution. ... Additionally, we have several representatives who need to miss House session for non-COVID reasons. ... Between those two things, I have decided the House will still be in session on Tuesday, but no voting will take place and attendance will not be taken."
Giuliani was hospitalized with the illness Sunday in Washington, D.C. Officials have not said when he initially tested positive.
