Springfield, IL. (ECWd) -
At the end of Governor Pritzker's Daily Briefing, he chastised State Representative Darren Bailey's choice to not wear a mask on the House Floor by assuming he was a risk to others. The Governor does not "know" if Baily is a risk to others yet chose to chastise him for putting others at risk. This is the same failed logic the Governor tried to apply through the IDPH emergency rule to close businesses and make criminals out of people simply providing for their families, all without any facts they are a risk.
After the House voted to mandate wearing a mask, Rep Bailey was escorted out of the building for refusing.
However, more than an hour after Rep Bailey was removed, Rep Anthony DeLuca was seen on the camera for more than 10 minutes without a mask on while talking on his phone, talking to others, and reading papers or using his computer.
It should be noted there were others who were seen not wearing a mask as well yet the House Majority only voted to throw out Representative Bailey. The hypocrisy is alive and well in Springfield.
It makes us wonder if Governor Pritzker would use those same words towards Representative DeLuca?
We made a video to say it for him - Rep Bailey was escorted out around the 38-minute mark of the House video, and this started at about the 1 hour 44-minute mark of the same video (see it unedited here):
