A U.S. Senator has tested positive for the drug cocaine
For many observers of American politics, Senator Lindsey Graham has been a puzzling and frustrating case. He had a reputation as a straight-talking moderate in Congress for most of his time there. In recent years, though, he has shifted to the extreme right, perhaps even to the margins.
Graham has adopted a more responsible approach to the COVID-19 epidemic, while being cozier with fringe members. Taking the measures advised by professionals in general, but not always. However, as instances of the Delta variety have resurfaced, Graham seems to be one of them.
He reveals that he has tested positive for a new coronavirus.
COVID-19 has been diagnosed in Lindsey Graham. Graham was diagnosed on August 2 after being sick the previous weekend, according to reports.
Many people were concerned when Graham appeared in public on August 2 at the United States Capitol Building. According to The Hill, he was wearing a mask and seemed to be avoiding interaction. However, it is usually advised that if you have COVID-19 symptoms, you avoid going out in public.
Graham has urged people to take the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. CNN quotes him as saying, “I am convinced I would not feel as good as I do if I hadn’t followed them.”
Senator Graham presently serves on the Senate Budget Committee as the ranking member. He stepped down as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee recently. Graham was elected to the United States Senate for the first time in 2002 as a Republican. He was chosen to replace Senator Strom Thurmond, who was adored and hated at the same time. Since then, Graham has been re-elected three times to the Senate.
