My AJC colleague Bob Keefe says that U.S. Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, the Republican from Coweta County, is in a lot of pain — and it has nothing to do with the Democrats in power or the state of his party.
Westmoreland was rushed from his Washington apartment to Bethesda Naval Hospital on Monday morning, suffering from kidney stones. Spokesman Brian Robinson said Westmoreland was still “awaiting another procedure” on Tuesday, but declined to discuss specifics.
Westmoreland, who has suffered from painful bouts with kidney stones before, never made it to work on Monday or Tuesday, and Robinson said he’s not sure when he might be back on Capitol Hill.
