Another high profile California elected official has been busted getting around their own coronavirus restrictions.
Officials in California are just dumping on their constituents.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed fled her city that has banned restaurant dining making the 50-mile trip north to dine at the same restaurant Gov. Gavin Newsom was caught in.
Breed fled to Napa Vally to attend a “small family birthday dinner.”
“I cannot emphasize enough how important it is that everyone act responsibly to reduce the spread of the virus,” Breed said in a statement the day she banned indoor dining in San Francisco.
“Every San Franciscan needs to do their part so that we can start moving in the right direction again,” Breed said.
Breed’s press director Andy Lynch told ABC 7, “On Nov. 7, while taking a few days off after the election, she attended a small family birthday dinner for a friend at an open-air table at the French Laundry. There were eight people in total, including herself.”
The party took place in the same “partially enclosed room” Newsom was caught in.
Breed has not apologized for attending the birthday party, unlike Gov. Gavin Newsom who said it was a “big mistake.”
“The spirit of what I’m preaching all the time was contradictory, and I’ve got to own that,” he said.
As usual the elite flock to areas where they can get around their own restrictions. If Breed’s party had been hosted in San Francisco she would have violated her own coronavirus restrictions. In Napa Valley at the time of the party Breed was not in violation.
Fifty-one of the state’s 58 counties are in the most restrictive purple tier and Newsom has said he may be imposing even tighter restrictions.
“We are assessing in real time over the next day or two to make deep purple moves,” Newsom noted. “If these trends continue, we’re going to have to take more dramatic, more drastic actions.”
