As we noted here last week when Rep. Louis Gohmert tested positive for COVID-19, due to his refusal to wear a mask, his fellow members of Congress and staff that he may have exposed to the virus needed to get tested, STAT. It seems those concerns were valid, because we've now learned that Rep. Raúl Grijalva, who, as the AP reported, was unfortunate enough to be sitting near Gohmert during a hearing last week, has now also tested positive for coronavirus.

Grijalva slammed his irresponsible Republican colleagues in a statement on Twitter yesterday:

We wish Grijalva and anyone else coping with this virus a speedy recovery.
