COVID+ Senator Goes Maskless At SCOTUS Hearing

Mediaite reports:

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) attended the Senate Judiciary Committee’s first day of confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett on Monday, and he prominently chose to not wear a face mask as he spoke during the proceeding.

Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court was thrown into turmoil at the top of the month when President Donald Trump, his allies, and numerous top Republicans got infected by the coronavirus after a White House Rose Garden event.

The gathering — deemed a super-spreader event — was held in celebration of Barrett’s nomination. Not only was Lee among those infected at the non-socially distanced affair, he was caught on film embracing people throughout the event.
