Once again, we are reminded that there are two sets of rules in America. One for our political class and another for everyone else.
First we had Nancy Pelosi and her hair salon incident, then we had California Governor Gavin Newsom attending a party, now this.
Lawmakers in California traveled to lovely Maui in Hawaii to meet with lobbyists.
That sounds like essential travel, doesn’t it?
California lawmakers head to Maui with lobbyists despite pandemic, travel warnings
The pandemic may have “canceled” 2020, but it did not derail an annual gathering of lobbyists and lawmakers on the shores of Maui that brought people from across the country to a luxury resort this week.
Roughly 100 people from four states converged at the Fairmont Kea Lani for a four-day legislative conference organized by the Independent Voter Project, said the group’s chair and executive director, Dan Howle.
The 18th annual event was a third of its regular size, Howle said, but it still drew nearly 20 lawmakers from California, Texas and Washington state. The theme? How to reopen states’ economies amid the public health crisis…
The event comes amid a worrisome surge in infections across the country and new travel restrictions on the West Coast, and as many schools and businesses remain closed.
Incidents like this are eroding the public’s trust in our leaders and they just keep happening.
Unbelievable. Will the hypocrisy ever end from our elected leaders? First Nancy Pelosi w/ the hair salon, then Gov. Newsom w/ his private dinner with his lobbyist buddy, now we have CA lawmakers at a conference in Hawaii while YOU are told to stay home. https://t.co/VMnF13crrJ

How much longer are the American people going to put up with this?
