DENVER, Colo. (AP) - A GOP staff member who tested positive for COVID-19 attended a morning House session and was sent home Monday as Colorado’s Democrat-led Legislature met for a special session.

Democratic House Speaker KC Becker has called the incident a “reckless breach” of the Capitol’s safety protocols.

House Republican leader Hugh McKean said that the Republican aide was cleared by a physician to work in person.

During the first day of the session, a number of Republicans removed their masks while seated at their desks at committee meetings and on the floor.

  1. “House Republican leader Hugh McKean said that the Republican aide was cleared by a physician to work in person.”
    .
    No self-respecting physician, given the facts, would clear someone to return to work under those circumstances. So perhaps he was cleared by a provider known to reflect Trump’s policy of non-compliance and who wasn’t given all the pertinent information.

    1. It has nothing to do with what political side they are on. But I guess with the hate you carry you will find any way to dig at the opposing side to your party. Pathetic.
      The two party system is broken. Only ignorance fuels it now days.
      Not red, Not blue but will call BS where I see it.
      If it was a democrat aid what would you be saying?……… yeah thought so.
