(DCWatchdog.com) – HAPPENING NOW: Dianne Feinstein, currently the oldest serving United States Senator who became controversial for refusing to retire even though it is evident she has dementia, has been hospitalized in California due to shingles.
According to a statement from Feinstein that was presumably written for her by a member of her staff:
“I was diagnosed over the February recess with a case of shingles. I have been hospitalized and am receiving treatment in San Francisco. I hope to return to the Senate later this month.”
Only recently, Feinstein finally announced she would not seek re-election next year.
On Feb. 14, Feinstein’s office issued the following:
“I am announcing today I will not run for re-election in 2024 but intend to accomplish as much for California as I can through the end of next year when my term ends.”
Still, in a public appearance after the statement was released, Feinstein seemed unaware that she had made the statement.
Fox News notes, “Feinstein has represented the Golden State since 1992 and is the longest-serving female senator ever, as well as the oldest sitting senator at age 89.”
