With DemocRats like Gov.Ralph(Blackface)Northam(Delusional-VA) and little Bobby Francis O’Rourke it is do as I say not as I do.
They make rules that are to be followed by the great unwashed masses or else pay a penalty.
The Daily Beast quoted a spokesperson for the governor, who tried to help him save face:
Alena Yarmosky, a spokeswoman for the Democratic governor—a physician who has repeatedly urged Virginians to wear face coverings in public—said he was “outside yesterday and not expecting to be within six feet of anyone. This is an important reminder to always have face coverings in case situations change,” adding, “we are all learning how to operate in this new normal, and it’s important to be prepared.”
However, the governor was pictured taking selfies with beachgoers — at far closer range than six feet:
A day after teasing that he’s making masks mandatory, Northam is out taking selfies? I didn’t believe the pictures were real, but they are…https://www.pilotonline.com/news/health/vp-nw-coronavirus-virginia-beach-opening-20200524-z2jgt7wzdzcipmdar3uydqyjzu-story.html …
The spokseperson also said that Northam simply wanted to make sure his social distancing rules were being enforced.
In Texas, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) mocked Gov. Greg Abbott for opening the state:

However, Jeff Roe, who managed Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) presidential campaign in 2016, posted a photo of a man who appeared to be O’Rourke, jogging without a mask:
This is a pic of you jogging yesterday. No mask. Maybe sit this one out. https://twitter.com/betoorourke/status/1264039168130330624 …Beto O’Rourke

Last week, local reporters discovered that construction workers were traveling to Wisconsin to work on Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s horse farm, in apparent violation of his own stay-at-home rules.
Pritzker noted that construction is an essential industry, though he did not explain why the workers’ cross-border travel was essential. Pritzker’s wife has also traveled to the family horse farm in Florida; when caught, Pritzker demanded reporters respect his family’s privacy.
