Despite having called for the Federal Aviation Administration to adopt "mandatory" mask mandates at airports, on airplanes, and on public transportation, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was spotted not wearing a mask at Dulles International Airport in Virginia on Friday.

Photos show an unmasked Feinstein walking through Signature Flight Support at Dulles International Airport, which services passengers flying private. A fellow traveler who was waiting at Dulles Signature at the same time said he was told he had to wear a mask.

In late June, Feinstein wrote to the FAA urging them to "issue clear, nationwide, mandatory mask requirements for all aviation employees and travelers."

"I ask that you issue guidance as soon as possible so passengers can have a clear understanding of the requirements and so that we may reduce exposure for workers and travelers alike," Feinstein wrote.
