Dominos Start To Fall Judge Smacks Down Democrat Governor Over Coronavirus
Notice you haven’t heard this one on CNN…
Republican State Rep. Darren Bailey of Xenia, Illinois filed a lawsuit against Illinois Governor J.B Pritzker who extended the state’s stay at home order to May 30th.
Baily said that Pritzker has exceeded his authority and an Illinois Circuit judge agreed! Now there is a caveat, the ruling only applies to Baily who is now exempt from the stay at home order. The ruling does pave the way for ANY resident of Illinois to sue the governor.
“We are certainly going to act in a swift action to have this ruling overturned,” Pritzker said in his daily coronavirus press briefing Monday.
“Enough is enough!” Bailey wrote in a statement. “I filed this lawsuit on behalf of myself and my constituents who are ready to go back to work and resume a normal life.”
The ruling has destroyed Pritzker’s plans who now has been forced to issue a new policy until the suit is resolved.
“Representative Bailey’s decision to go to the courts is an insult to all Illinoisans who have been lost during this COVID-19 crisis. It’s a danger to millions of people who might get ill because of his recklessness,” Pritzker said Monday. “Disasters don’t evaporate on a 30-day timeframe. Legislators took this into account when they wrote this law. We will fight this lawsuit to the furthest means possible. In the interim, we will be issuing new public health directives so we can respond to this public health crisis.”
before the lawsuit, Pritzker did relax some of the rules and is allowing elective medical procedures, allows retailers to fufill online or pickup orders.
Bailey’s lawsuit comes as more and more evidence proves that mass stay-at-home orders are ineffective. Democrat Governors have used the coronavirus to seize more power from the people. They are also using their stay-at-home orders to hurt the President by extending them to hinder the economy.
