Congresswoman Jackie Speier is not at all thrilled with her colleague, Congressman Louie Gohmert, who recently tested positive for COVID-19 and earned himself the nickname "Congressman Covid."

TMZ caught up with Rep. Speier and she had no hesitation in pointing out that he is a clear threat to not only the other Congress members but to anyone, especially staff, who come into the building because "he lives in his office."

"It's outrageous. It really is outrageous," she began.

"Here you have a member not wearing a mask. Proud he's not wearing a mask," she continued. "We wouldn't know that he was asymptomatic but for the fact, he was trying to get on a plane with the President to go back to Texas."

Speier, who has been a member of Congress since 2008 and currently serves as a U.S. Representative for California's 14th congressional district, went on to explain that Gohmert has shown a clear disregard for the safety of others. She noted that after he was made aware of his positive status he visited a gym, putting other gymgoers at risk. 

In addition, she said, "By the way, he sleeps in his office," which is something she feels that his employees should now receive workman's compensation for due to the heightened risk of contracting the coronavirus. 

For Gohmert's part, due to his positive status, he can't exactly catch a flight home to Texas where he has served as the U.S. Representative from the state's 1st congressional district since 2005. He isn't the only one who apparently sleeps in his office though, as she mentions that numerous other representatives, over 100, do so, "some Democrat, mostly Republican," due to the high cost of living in the Nation's capital.
