“The chief of staff called and told us about the one positive case,” one source told The Denver Post, and another confirmed. “Three or four more people are experiencing symptoms. … It was recommended that they not tell their roommates.”
So a large part of Lamborn’s Washington, D.C., office has either tested positive or is showing symptoms, and the response is “don’t tell your roommates.” While the congressman goes to fundraisers without getting tested at all.
Lamborn put his staff at risk by making them work from the office instead of remotely, and now that they’re getting sick, he’s trying to pretend it’s not happening. Take this as one more reminder Donald Trump may be the lowest and purest form of Republican, but his behavior is not an anomaly in his party.
