Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) is among those who made a culture war of coronavirus on Capitol Hill, forcing other lawmakers and staff in congress to deal with him unmasked. Today he was diagnosed with Covid..
Rep. Louie Gohmert — a Texas Republican who has been walking around the Capitol without a mask — has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to multiple sources.
Gohmert was scheduled to fly to Texas on Wednesday morning with President Donald Trump and tested positive in a pre-screen at the White House. The eighth-term Republican told CNN last month that he was not wearing a mask because he was being tested regularly for the coronavirus.
He says he'll now wear a mask, but he's been infecting his colleagues and everyone around him for days.
