Wisconsin’s Congressman-elect, Dr. Steven Kagen, an allergist and aerobiologist, understands the health risks that mold poses. Katherine M. Skiba of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writes:
“When the Appleton, Wis., physician, just elected to Congress, learned that there was mold in the office building he’ll occupy next year, he first jumped into a hazmat suit Thursday – and then into action.
Teasing before donning a respirator, Kagen remarked: ‘We’re going back to the Clinton administration: Do not inhale, anybody.’
Turns out the mechanical room in the sub-basement of the Longworth House Office Building had more than mold. More troubling was asbestos, Kagen said.”
