Like many Democrat governors, Michelle Grisham of New Mexico has imposed very strict shutdown policies on her state due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
And like a handful of other liberal leaders, she is now accused of violating her own policies.
Why does this keep happening?
KRQE News reports:
Did the governor break her own rules?
Did Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham play by her own rules during the public health order? KRQE News 13 has learned in April, when she ordered non-essential businesses to shut down and lectured all New Mexicans to stay home, a non-essential business opened up so she could buy jewelry and have it delivered to her.
In early April, Gov. Lujan Grisham stressed that New Mexicans needed to stay home and should only go out for essential items such as food. She also announced that all non-essential businesses were closed. “We are in really tough financial times as a state.
It mirrors the incredible, personal sacrifices that happen every single day because people have limited their ability to work, telecommuting and many people, in fact, have lost their jobs,” said Gov. Lujan Grisham on April 3rd.
However, just days after the April 3rd news conference and a week before Easter, KRQE News 13 has learned that Gov. Lujan Grisham called an employee at Lilly Barrack on Paseo to buy expensive jewelry. The jewelry was bought over the phone, but the employee went to the store, got the jewelry and placed it outside the door of the store where someone who knew the governor picked it up.
This is according to the person who runs Lilly Barrack stores. She says she didn’t know about it until after it happened. She also said no one was allowed in the stores at that time due to the public health order.
Here’s the video report:
This local segment on Gov. Michelle Grisham who is a possible Biden VP pick is just brutal.
She had an expensive jewelry store open to deliver her jewelry after locking down businesses and banning curbside pickups.

If governors can’t obey their own orders, maybe it’s time to loosen up these policies.
