California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell was caught maskless indoors in sunny Florida as he continues to support his state’s unconstitutional lockdown measures and vaccine mandates.
The Daily Mail published photos of Swalwell in a Miami hotel with his son.
“They got me! Maskless, juggling a baby and a coffee while meeting with a Congolese queen. Pulitzer please!” Swalwell later mockingly tweeted.

“The Congressman was in the Sunshine State to take official meetings and campaign to help Democrats keep the House,” Swalwell’s office said in a statement.
“He loves Florida and has dozens of family members there. It is lies from unvaccinated Republicans that are prolonging the pandemic,” it added.

Swalwell has strongly attacked Republicans for making the pandemic worse through less restrictive measures. His appearance in Florida shows he’s enjoying the freedom whether he agrees with it or not.

Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis recently ripped “lockdown politicians” for their Florida vacations. Referring to New York’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, he said, “This is a ruling class mentality.”
Ocasio-Cortez also recently appeared in Miami without a mask over the holidays, leading to widespread criticism.
The congresswoman vented her own attacks on Republicans, ignoring the fact that their criticisms were an accurate description of her escape from the Draconian lockdowns of New York.

The appearance is one of many times lockdown politicians have supported restrictive laws only to fly to free states like Florida to enjoy some of the freedom they deny their own people.
