They say no good deed goes unpunished.

Well, for Congressman Markwayne Mullin, that seems to fit here.

Congressman Mullin was, according to CBS political reporter Grace Segers, one of the legislators who “bravely helped barricade the doors to the House chambers” during last Wednesday’s protest at the Capitol.

“But,” Segers continued. “According to video obtained by Punch Bowl News, he was not wearing a mask, and even appeared to decline one when another lawmaker was handing them out.”

On Monday, Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-New Jersey) tweeted that she tested positive for COVID.

“Following the events of Wednesday, including sheltering with several colleagues who refused to wear masks, I decided to take a COVID test,” she wrote. “I have tested positive.”

Nancy Cordes, CBS chief congressional correspondent, reported that Coleman tested positive after sheltering with “several colleagues who refused to wear masks.”
