Anti-Vax Washington State Senator Dies Of Something

The Olympian reports:

State Sen. Doug Ericksen, who represented Whatcom County with a strong conservative voice for more than two decades in the Legislature, has died, according to a Saturday afternoon press release from the Washington Senate Republican Caucus.

Ericksen, 52, died after testing positive for COVID-19 while in El Salvador, according to a Nov. 11 message he sent through legislative channels asking his colleagues for help getting advanced treatment for the virus.

Few details have been offered since Nov. 19, when a family friend told The Bellingham Herald that Ericksen was recovering.

He was then reportedly airlifted to an unnamed Florida hospital and nothing further was heard until this weekend. His most recent bit of legislative work, issued on November 1st, railed against “coercive” vaccine mandates.
