Illinois Republican who rejected to put on a mask was expelled from legislative session
During an extraordinary legislative session on Wednesday, which discussed the further opening of the state, Rep. Darren Bailey refused to wear a personal protective mask, for which he was expelled from the building.
A vote was taken in connection with the antisocial behavior of the state representative, according to which 81 members of the session were in favor of removing the Bailey, The Chicago Tribune reports.
By disobeying to wear a mask, Bailey wanted to show his disagreement with the stay-at-home order of the current Governor of Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D), for which he paid.
"The representative has shown a callous disregard for life, callous disregard for people's health," Pritzker said. "You just [ask] a doctor [to] tell you why people wear masks in the first place. It's to protect others. So clearly, the representative has no interest in protecting others.»
