The coronavirus seems to have an irony receptor

A Republican sheriff in Arizona who said he would not enforce the state's emergency coronavirus orders has come down with COVID-19. 
Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb announced on Facebook on Wednesday that he had tested positive, likely from attending a campaign event on Saturday. He says he found out when he was called on Tuesday to meet with President Trump at the White House and was screened for the virus.  
"Unfortunately, as a law enforcement official and elected leader, we do not have the luxury of staying home," Lamb wrote. "This line of work is inherently dangerous, and that is a risk we take when we sign up for the job. Today, that risk is the COVID-19 virus. On Saturday, I held a campaign event, where it is likely I came into contact with an infected individual."
He is now self-quarantining for 14 days.  Via the Coronavirus subreddit.

  1. I believe it's known as 'karma' in some cultures and belief systems. And it's spot-on-target here. Just because you're free to act like an idiot does not make you immune to the consequences of your idiotic choices.
