The following article, Illinois Governor Sends Windy City Workers to Wisconsin to Work On His Mansion Amid Lockdown, was first published on Flag And Cross.
If you are a liberal billionaire who also happens to be the CEO of an entire state, you’re as close to untouchable as it gets. Say hello, to JB Pritzker.
From Fox 32 Chicago:
CHICAGO – A big construction project at Gov. JB Pritzker’s Wisconsin horse farm has some questioning whether the governor is honoring the spirit of his own stay-at-home order.
FOX 32 News watched Thursday as construction workers from Illinois crossed the border to work on the governor’s farm. Pritzker, though, says there is no double standard because construction workers are exempt.
Pritzker threatened to toss business owners in jail for an entire year if they reopen during his draconian lockdown order.
From Illinois Policy:
Members of a key legislative committee are scheduled to meet May 20 to discuss a newly filed emergency rule that criminalizes businesses who defy Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s stay at home order.
Pritzker amended Illinois Department of Public Health rules so business owners can be charged with a Class A misdemeanor for violating his closure order. The rule immediately took effect Friday, and now business owners can face a maximum penalty fine of $2,500 and one year in prison. Since this new rule was filed as an emergency rule, it would be effective for 150 days.

Compare coverage of "Florida beaches open" with the non-coverage of Governor Andrew Cuomo sending thousands of people to die of coronavirus in nursing homes.
CNN is covering up Cuomo's genocide of the elderly in nursing homes.
CNN is complicit in genocide.
