Your devoted editorial team at Seeing Red Nebraska once again noticed that the recent news story on Omaha Police Union President Tony Conner’s recovery from COVID leaves out a lot of pertinent information. Here is a quick timeline of events as publicly shared on Twitter via the OPOA’s official accounts (and, as you undoubtedly are as well, we remain flabbergasted as to how news media “missed” all this. Well, not really)

Tony Conner campaigning, unmasked, for Don Bacon — one month before being admitted to the hospital (for reference, Donald Trump Sr. was admitted to Walter Reed hospital five days prior, on October 2nd, 2020)
Tony Conner, unmasked, thanking the Baer Foundation on video — 12 days before being driven to the emergency room (as per his testimony to the reporters at KETV, article linked below).
