A politician from Los Angeles is under fire after being caught dining outside after voting to ban the activity.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
A Democratic Los Angeles County official dined outdoors at a Santa Monica restaurant just hours after she voted to ban outdoor dining, Fox 11 Los Angeles reported Monday.
At a county board meeting on Nov. 24, Los Angeles County supervisor Sheila Kuehl voted to ban outdoor dining, which she called “a most dangerous situation” for spreading the coronavirus. After the vote, which passed 3-2, Kuehl stopped by Il Forno Trattoria, an Italian restaurant she frequents, before the outdoor dining ban took effect the following day.
All restaurants and bars in Los Angeles County are now banned from serving customers outdoors for at least three weeks.
Kuehl is one of several Democratic leaders who have been caught disobeying their own health restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic and resulting shutdowns.
This of course is one instance in a long list of politicians not obeying their lockdown protocol. This leads to the conclusion that the virus must not be as bad as they say.
