PALMDALE (CBSLA) — California State Assemblyman Tom Lackey (R-Palmdale) has been hospitalized since Sunday with complications from COVID-19.

In a Facebook post, Chief of Staff George Andrews said the 61-year old lawmaker was receiving “excellent treatment” at Palmdale Regional Medical Center and was expected to make a full recovery.

Lackey’s hospitalization comes days after it was announced that the capitol building would be closed and sanitized after a number of employees tested positive for coronavirus, including Assemblywoman Autumn Burke (D-Inglewood).

It was not immediately known where Lackey contracted the illness or when he tested positive.

    I hope this means that he has to step down now and let someone else do the job! I am so disgusted with how he abused his poor disabled ex-wife ! Just to leave her for his Mistress and marry her instead! Saddling Ex-Mrs-Lackey with all of their combined debts! What a DISGUSTING CREEP and a BULLY!
