The Garrulous Anti-Masker Rep. Gohmert Tests Positive For COVID-19

CNN reports Texas Republican Rep.

Louie Gohmert has tested positive for the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

Throughout the pandemic, Gohmert has frequently and pointedly refused to wear a mask while at the Capitol.

While on the House floor during votes, he has spent considerable time speaking to aides and lawmakers — without a mask or social distancing.

Gohmert says that having the virus doesn't change his views on wearing masks.
