On May 9, 2020 in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, Flynn, a member of the Regional Recovery Task Force, came under fire for his retort against critics on his personal Facebook page, stating “Keep talking about how bad we Democrats are and WE will STOP supporting YOUR businesses. You want to make it PERSONAL and we WILL.” He later removed the post and apologized. [5]
