Moron TX GOP Rep. Berated Staff for Wearing Masks

Gohmert Aide - "Staffers Are ‘Berated’ For Wearing Masks, Office Is Regularly Full"


Politico playbook author Jake Sherman posted an email ostensibly from an aide to Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) — who confirmed Wednesday he had tested positive for coronavirus — suggesting Gohmert requires the office to be full and that staffers are berated for wearing masks.


Gohmert reportedly told staffers about his diagnosis in person, which Sherman says has led to a “lot of frustration” towards him.


“Jake, thank you for letting our office know Louie tested positive for the Coronavirus,” the email begins.


The aide claims that Gohmert “requires full staff to be in the office, including three interns, so that ‘we could be an example to America on how to open up safely.’”


“When probing the office, you might want to ask how often people were berated for wearing masks,” they added.

Gohmert, who regularly shirks masks when on Capitol Hill, was reprimanded by Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) for taking off his mask during a House Judiciary Committee hearing — he also walked maskless and in close contact with Attorney General William Barr, whose office now says he will get tested as well.

“I keep being tested, and I don’t have it,” Gohmert told CNN last month. “So I’m not afraid of you, but if I get it I'll wear a mask.” Gohmert’s positive diagnosis came during routine White House testing as part of his now-canceled plans to travel with President Trump to West Texas on Wednesday. Gohmert is reportedly at least the eighth member of Congress to contract the virus, which has exploded in his home state of Texas in recent weeks.
