LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl voted to ban outdoor dining in the city citing Covid-19 safety-related concerns, policy decisions like this have raised the ire of many in the city and across the nation facing similar rules. Just after the vote Kuehl was spotted dining outside at a restaurant, this style of dining outside was a situation that she had described as “a most dangerous situation”. More from Fox 11:
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Just hours after Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl voted to ban outdoor dining at L.A. County’s 31,000 restaurants over COVID-19 safety concerns, she visited a restaurant in Santa Monica, where she dined outdoors, FOX 11 has learned on Monday.
FOX 11 received multiple tips that shortly after her vote on Tuesday, Kuehl was seen dining outside at Il Forno Trattoria in Santa Monica, an Italian restaurant near her house that she has previously described as one of her ‘favorite’ restaurants.
When FOX 11 investigative reporter Bill Melugin stopped by the restaurant to ask about Kuehl’s visit, managers told him they “didn’t want to get involved”, and they have no comment.
Actions like this should no longer be a surprise, politicians have seen themselves as above the law and better than the average individual. Covid-19 has put a new spotlight on this elitist attitude and should serve as a warning to all as to what these people think of the average American and their families.
