Illinois Governor Pritzker Gets Angry When Asked If His Wife Violated State’s ‘Stay-At-Home’ Order
Rules don’t apply to the Governor’s wife because she needed to go visit their 12 million dollar equestrian ranch.
“Well, first of all, I want to say is that in politics it used to be that we kept our families out of it,” Pritzker said with a hint of anger. “My official duties have nothing to do with my family. So, I’m just not going to answer that question. It’s inappropriate and I find it reprehensible, honestly that, that a reporter wrote a story about it.”
Illinois Gov. J. B. Pritzker (D) refused to say whether his wife, M.K. Pritzker, has stayed in the state during the ongoing Wuhan coronavirus pandemic and abiding by the state’s “stay-at-home” order, which includes a request to not engage in non-essential travel.
Patch.com reported on Monday the Illinois first lady went to their $12-million equestrian estate in Wellington, Flordia. This comes after Pritzker extended the state’s “stay-at-home” order. The Palm Beach County horse farm was purchased by a Pritzker-linked LLC the same week he won the governor’s race in 2018. More
