NBC5 CHICAGO: A third Democratic congressperson — after going since March 2020 without becoming infected — has tested positive for COVID-19 after sheltering in place with Republican colleagues who refused to wear masks during the Capitol siege. In the video above Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Oklahoma) firmly refuses a mask, saying he doesn't want to get political here. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-Georgia) was also refusing a mask.
The three (so far) who have tested positive are Rep. Brad Schneider (D-Illinois), Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Washington) and Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (R-New Jersey.) If any rep dies, the insurrectionists inside and outside the body will have achieved partial success. Thankfully, the White House will get an over-the-top deep cleaning before the Bidens move in.
NBC NEW YORK: Aaron Mostofsky, the son of a Brooklyn judge who was seen in animal furs and carrying a Capitol Police officer's shield during the Capitol riot, has been arrested. Mostofsky's dad, Shlomo Mostofsky, is a Kings County Supreme Court judge. His brother, Nachman Mostofsky, is a major Republican figure in Brooklyn. Unironically rioted with raging anti-Semites. You can't make this shit up.

DEADLINE: Russell T. Davies, creator of the Channel 4/HBO Max AIDS-themed drama series It's a Sin, has come down on the side of gay actors in gay roles. He says:
I’m not being woke about this … but I feel strongly that if I cast someone in a story, I am casting them to act as a lover, or an enemy, or someone on drugs or a criminal or a saint … they are not there to “act gay” because “acting gay” is a bunch of codes for a performance. It’s about authenticity, the taste of 2020.
KENNETH IN THE (212): Gotta love when they're so big the underwear almost doesn't cut it.
SOCIALITE LIFE: Sorry, but Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball and Javier Bardem as Desi Arnaz ... that is not good casting, no matter that they're good actors. Ewwww. Lucie Arnaz is expressing hope:
