U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) tweeted
this afternoon that he was "Just diagnosed with likely H1N1. Ugh. Off to seclusion for awhile."
Walden spokesman Andrew Whelan confirmed to The Hill's
blog that the congressman received the diagnosis and that he tweeted the message himself.
Perhaps the source of Walden's illness can be traced. On Oct. 4, the 52-year-old congressman tweeted: "Lvg Medford after a couple days in Southern Oregon. Met with St Mary's students who battled H1N1 flu in China; toured fire site on Roxy Ann."
