The House had been meeting for THREE DAYS before Democrat Lakesha Collins decided to make an issue of GOP members not wearing masks.
Anybody in the House drop dead in those THREE DAYS Democrats?

Quotes from the article:
“It’s time that we set an example that sanity — sanity is going to make a return here in the state of Illinois in Springfield,” the Beecher Republican said. “We lived under two years of tyrannical rule for one person, and now we want to kick people out of here because this body, this body that we’re in right now, has not been tough enough to do their job for the last two years.
“We haven’t been tough enough to stand up to a governor. We haven’t been tough enough to stand up to a bureaucracy that is completely out of control.”
After a short, heated debate, the House voted 66 to 39 largely along party lines to remove the non-compliant Republicans. Only one Democrat voted against the ouster of the maskless Republicans.
The story doesn’t say who the lone Democrat was!
I’d really like to know what Democrat was brave enough to vote against his party!
Republican David Welter later caved and came back with a mask on. He claimed he needed to represent his constituents.
Note: It took 3 days for Democrats to object to Republicans not wearing masks. Did it have anything to do with court rulings against Pritzker Democrats?
The actions by the majority of the Democrats prove they are anti-freedom of choice. If they believe a mask protects them they are free to wear one.
Obviously they don’t believe it since they expect everyone to kneel to tyranny instead of having the freedom to choose.
The court cases were about Due Process. Freedom demands a government that is not allowed to arbitrarily make decisions for you and force you to comply. Vote accordingly, the choice is quite clear.
Anybody think Scott Preston would have been with the 9?
