California DA takes flak over alleged violation of local coronavirus restrictions

Yet another high-profile Democrat has found themselves in hot water over reports that she violated coronavirus-related lockdown rules. 

According to Fox News, Contra Costa County, California District Attorney (DA) Diana Becton is facing criticism after being accused of hosting a wedding reception last summer that reports said may have flouted both state and local regulations put in place to help curb the spread of COVID-19.

“A wedding in my yard”

Becton reportedly told the San Francisco Chronicle that she had organized a “small, outdoor wedding and adhered to state and county restrictions.”

“I had a wedding in my yard that was really based upon the love that we shared,” Becton told the Chronicle. “I hope that I did not do anything that was in violation of any rules. If I did, it certainly was not my intent.”

But as Fox News pointed out, no such gathering would likely have been permitted under California’s regulations at the time, even with masks and social distancing. What’s more, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that neighbors recalled getting notes warning that there would be some “20 to 30” additional vehicles parked in the neighborhood.

“It’s human nature”

As such, conservatives just aren’t buying what Becton is selling. “She would have to be deaf, dumb, and blind to not know that our governor and our state health officials have strongly discouraged, and at times banned, gatherings of any size,” Center for American Liberty CEO Harmeet Dhillon told Fox News.

“Her tone-deaf, crass remark about how ‘we don’t just get married in my community, we have a celebration,’ that’s literally every community in the world,” Dhillon added.

“Literally every civilization celebrates marriage with a gathering. It’s human nature. I just celebrated my 10th wedding anniversary this weekend,” the conservative activist said. “It did not occur to me, as a person who respects the law, though I disagree with it, to have a celebration — notwithstanding the fact that it’s very clear that some celebrations are barred by law right now.”

Not the only one

Becton now finds herself on a growing list of Democrats who have been caught flouting coronavirus-related restrictions — and that list includes the governor of her state.

In November, Fox News published photos of California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) attending a crowded dinner party where participants were neither masked nor socially distanced.

That story came just two months after the network broadcast footage showing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) without a mask while getting her hair done at a San Francisco salon that was supposed to be shut down under current rules.

Instead of apologizing, Pelosi accused the salon owner of orchestrating a “set-up” and said that she was the one who was owed an apology, as Fox reported at the time. Seems like the apple really doesn’t fall far from the tree.

    1. Why hasn’t anyone in the Democratic party been taken down of their corruption of the past , the Depp state must be drained , corruption needs to be taken serious , it costs American too much money, lives, & too many benefits. The feds need to get to work

  2. Act of War
    This should be considered criminal and attack on the United States of America much the same as China and the release of the virus. Texas you have to stop this nonsense. Texas Sheriff: ‘It’s Absolutely True’ That Biden Is Releasing Illegals Into U.S. Without COVID Tests .AJ Louderback, Sheriff of Jackson County in Texas, told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday night that it was “absolutely true” that the Biden administration was releasing illegal immigrants into U.S. communities without giving them a COVID-19 test.

    1. And that is part of the reason we’re in the position we are now !!! When good people don’t stand up for their rights, their rights will be abused and removed. Too much silent majority !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. The border patrol should just not obey the obiden directory, and NOT release any illegals into our country! Texas, Arizona, and the other border states must bring lawsuits against Biden for endangering the citizens of OUR country!

  5. This is another example of why I feel that this “SO CALLED VIRUS” isn’t as bad as they have been telling us because if it was these half brain Liberals would safe card themselves and their families like never before. YES, their is a new strain of the flu that they named “COVID 19” but its about the same as the flu we know. I also feel that this is a test just to see how far the government can control the population. I just find it funny that this came out on an election year where they could push mail in voting which is the number recipe for fraud.. They have been planning this for at least 4 years.

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
