Looking for a source in chazal that compare the airuv rav to tza'ras.

I have vague recollection of learning something to this effect once and it would make a killer addition to my Shavuos dvar torah.

Try Panim Yafot on Bamidbar 5:2

Alternatively, if you assume the Erev Rav were originally not Jewish then you can apply the statement (Kiddushin 70b): קשין גרים לישראל כספחת
