(RightWing.org) – About 20 state legislators are enjoying a vacation at a luxurious Hawaiian resort hotel this week – while their colleagues force the US back into lockdown. The lawmakers, from California, Washington and Texas, are attending an annual lobbying function run by the Independent Voter Project, a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization.
Event organizers refuse to name the attendees at Maui’s Fairmont Kea Lani hotel, but moderate Democrats often attend. California assembly members Jim Cooper (D) and Blanca Rubio (D) took part last year; their offices are stonewalling questions about whether they’re attending this year, too.
Newsom had dinner with several other couples.
A handful of state legislators attended a conference in Hawaii.
In both cases, the decisions of the elected officials gave the impression that their privilege makes them immune to the pandemic.https://t.co/QOp4T6XkCv

California’s state government ordered 40 counties back into lockdown on November 17, although Governor Gavin Newsom (D) went to a birthday party last week that broke social distancing rules. Washington is also tightening its grip on citizens’ freedom. Their politicians don’t care, though, happily accepting over $3,500 each in corporate hospitality for the lobbying event – even though the biggest lobbyists are staying away this year.
The hypocrisy of the Left just keeps on growing.
