Photos show Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren mask-less at a New Mexico wedding in violation of the state’s new indoor mask mandate.
Warren attended the wedding of Interior Secretary Deb Haaland to longtime partner Skip Sayre at a tribal resort in New Mexico on Saturday, where photographs obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show both Warren and Haaland partying without masks. The images show Warren posing for a photo without a mask on, while Haaland, who married her longtime partner, Skip Sayre, at the wedding, was captured dancing with Sayre and sitting next to Democratic Kansas congresswoman Sharice Davids, according to the Free Beacon.
“The re-implemented mask requirement applies to all individuals aged 2 and older in all indoor public settings — except when eating or drinking,” the governor’s office stated in a press release. “The indoor mask requirement will be effective Friday, Aug. 20. It will remain in effect until at least September 15.”
Warren, who did not immediately respond to requests for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation or Fox News, repeatedly emphasized the importance of wearing masks throughout the first year of the pandemic. Other politicians who got in trouble over masks during the pandemic include former President Barack Obama, 60, who held a birthday bash at his sprawling Martha’s Vineyard estate this month following an increase in coronavirus cases.
Last year, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was caught on video getting her hair done without a mask while salons in San Francisco remained closed and California Gov. Gavin Newsom faced widespread criticism last November after he broke his own rules by mingling without a mask with California Medical Association officials at an upscale Napa restaurant.
