The Associated Press reports:
A former Washington state lawmaker says Republican state Sen. Doug Ericksen of Ferndale, who was sickened with COVID-19 in El Salvador, is now in stable condition at a Florida hospital after a medevac flight.
The Republican wrote to his legislative colleagues last week that he tested positive for COVID-19 in El Salvador and needed monoclonal antibodies. It’s not known if Ericksen is vaccinated or why he was in El Salvador.
From my first report on this moron:
Ericksen told KIRO radio he was “fighting a bad bout” with the virus. A fierce critic of Gov. Jay Inslee’s emergency pandemic orders — including the recent vaccine mandates — Ericksen this year sponsored legislation to protect the rights of people who won’t get vaccinated.
Ericksen in 2019 registered with the U.S. Department of Justice as a foreign agent to conduct lobbying work on behalf of the Cambodian government, scoring a $500,000 contract for his new firm. That contract came after Ericksen traveled to Cambodia to observe — and ultimately praise — the country’s widely condemned 2018 elections.
It appears that the guy below arranged the flight.
