Representative Lamborn allowed his son to live in Congressional space. Lamborn gave his son the necessary access to live in a storage area in the basement of the U.S. Capitol for a period of weeks when Lamborn’s son relocated to Washington, D.C. for work. In addition to allegations of generalized pandemic terribleness, the suit also offers up host of ethics violations by Lamborn, mostly having staff run personal errands for their boss and allowing “his wife to take the Office’s supplies for her own personal use.” There is also this delightful nugget on Lanborn allowing his son to sleep in a U.S. Capitol storage room while he was in D.C. looking for a job that Lanborn had his staff help him try to land! From the suit: When Lamborn’s son was applying to federal jobs, Lamborn’s Office required Mr. Pope and another staffer to show him how the USA Jobs site worked and to give him tips on completing applications for federal employment. Subsequently, the Office required Mr. Pope to help prepare Lamborn’s son for job interviews by asking him mock interview questions and helping him craft his responses.

The suit says Lamborn was “reckless and dangerous” in his approach to the coronavirus, often calling it a “hoax,” and its hard to argue with Pope’s characterization. Lamborn, Pope alleges, refused to wear a mask or enforce any safety protocols in the office while simultaneously refusing to allow staff to work from home. The result was—surprise, surprise—many of them got sick! When Lamborn himself was exposed to infected staffers, he refused to wear a mask or isolate. “Well, I don’t care about you guys getting it,” Lamborn allegedly told his staff. When Pope raised concerns with the chief of staff, the suit says, he was branded a troublemaker and, in retaliation for raising his concerns, was ultimately dismissed in December.
