New Mexico Dem Governor Allows Non-Essential Business to Open – To Sell Her Jewelry
Are any leaders on the Left capable of abiding by the lockdown measures they’ve imposed on their citizens?
New York City’s Bill de Blasio got in one last visit to the gym before closing them, Chicago’s Lori Lightfoot broke social distancing rules to get a haircut (before threatening non-compilers with jail), the husband of Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer attempted to get his boat in the water, and now New Mexico’s governor is the latest hypocrite to be exposed.
According to the Daily Wire:
New Mexico Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham reportedly received special treatment after she issued lockdown orders and shutdown non-essential businesses last month in response to the coronavirus pandemic when a non-essential business opened up to sell her “expensive jewelry.”
KRQE news anchor Jessica Garate reported late Tuesday evening that Lujan Grisham called an employee at Lilly Barrack 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,” Garate reported. “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.”
Curbside delivery wasn’t allowed in New Mexico until May 1st.
KRQE reported that Lujan Grisham, who is reportedly being vetted as a potential vice presidential pick for presumptive Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, refused to answer questions on camera about the controversy.
KRQE highlighted how Lujan Grisham had “lectured” people in the state to stay home during the lockdown and video posted by the local news station showed Lujan Grisham telling residents in her state: “I need you to do better.”
