A senior editor at the ACLU has come under fire for publishing a tweet that she quickly deleted.

Rebecca McCray posted the following to Twitter:

“Tried to watch Vanita Gupta’s confirmation hearing but got too angry Chuck Grassley survived COVID.”

In other words, McCray is upset, mad, furious — angry — that Sen. Chuck Grassley is alive.

Or, in other words, McCray is upset, mad, furious — angry — that Sen. Chuck Grassley did not die from the China Virus.

We have reached out to the ACLU both on the national and state level to seek comment. We’ll publish whatever response they provide.
