Colorado state Sen. Vicki Marble voiced her strong opposition to a COVID-19 safety bill that would allow legislators to participate remotely, making them less likely to be infected by the deadly coronavirus that has killed 100,000 Americans.
Colorado Public Radio noted on May 26 that “around the building, most people wore masks, though a good number of Republican lawmakers in the House did not.”
Marble explained her position by denying science, and bragging about not washing her cart or social distancing at a Walmart store:
All these precautions, all the masks, all the spacing at the desks, all of these plexiglass partitions for perception so we can all feel safe… But we all really know it really doesn’t help. Who are you kidding? Honestly, who are you kidding?
I feel safer here than I feel anywhere. And you know what? I go to Walmart. And you know what? I don’t wipe down that cart every time I take it out. I put my hands on, shove it through and I’m going shoulder with people in the aisles even though Walmart has taken precautions to say you go this way down that aisle and that way down that aisle. People just aren’t ready to accept that.
