Man Who Hit Person With Stick Backs Out of Charlottesville City Council Race After BLP Report

Published

on

Don Gathers, the social justice activist who was spotted hitting a man with a stick in the early moments of violence at Charlottesville’s Unite the Right rally in 2017, will not seek a City Council seat in the Virginia city at this time.

Gathers was slated to kick things off with a launch party, but backed out — citing health reasons.

This comes after Big League Politics’ report on Gather’s activity at the Unite the Right fiasco, in which we wrote:

Paul had entered quarantine on March 22nd after testing positive for the coronavirus. He’s the only Senator to test positive for the disease, although Mitt Romney and Mike Lee entered self-quarantine after coming into contact with individuals confirmed to have the disease.

Paul had become the target of criticism from at least one liberal Senator for his quarantine procedures.

Kentucky has incurred roughly 1,200 diagnosed coronavirus cases as of Tuesday, with more than 60 people dying of the disease in the state.
