Neil Parrott hosts birthday party for 300, no masksMore than 300 people attended a birthday party and campaign fundraiser hosted by a Republican congressional candidate in Maryland over the weekend, an event that sparked criticism from a political opponent and highlighted the challenges of campaigning in the middle of a pandemic.

Maryland Del. Neil C. Parrott (R-Washington) celebrated his 50th birthday campaign-style Saturday, raking in around $50,000 for his bid against Rep. David Trone (D) in Maryland’s 6th District, he said.

But photos of the gathering at Antietam Recreation, a summer day camp in Hagerstown that also hosts group events, show crowds of people in close proximity underneath an outdoor pavilion and in a buffet line outside, with many not wearing face masks — including Parrott, who said he had one with him but “for the most part” chose not to wear it.
