Texas Judge Breaks His Own COVID Order, Gets Maximum Penalty

With so many law­mak­ers mak­ing rules that they can’t or won’t even fol­low, it’s about time that they face the same con­se­quences they impose on oth­ers when they break their own rules. Per­haps if this hap­pened to Cal­i­for­nia Gov­er­nor New­som, Michi­gan Gov­er­nor Whit­mer, and New York Gov­er­nor Cuo­mo, they would ease up of their dic­ta­tor-like ten­den­cies and resume nor­mal­cy to their states.

Leave it to the great state of Texas to lead by exam­ple. A judge in Texas, Bill Grav­ell, plead­ed guilty to a mis­de­meanor after he vio­lat­ed his stay-at-home order to attend his grandson’s birth­day party.

“While I car­ry the heavy pub­lic bur­den of guid­ing the poli­cies that best pro­tect our cit­i­zens, I am also a hus­band, father and grand­fa­ther,” Grav­ell said in a state­ment, the Wash­ing­ton Exam­in­er report­ed. “It was in this role that I vis­it­ed my 5‑year-old grand­son on his birth­day. Paw­paw Bill made an error in judge­ment that Coun­ty Judge Grav­ell deeply regrets.”

Grav­ell was caught on cam­era in April going to the birth­day par­ty in fire­fight­ing equip­ment from the coun­ty, which also result­ed in the fire chief apol­o­giz­ing for pro­vid­ing the judge some­thing he could “not pro­vide everyone.”

The judge issued the stay-at-home order in March, which pro­hib­it­ed all pub­lic and pri­vate gath­er­ings out­side of a per­son­’s house­hold, closed nonessen­tial busi­ness­es, and restrict­ed res­i­dents from using pub­lic tran­sit except to car­ry out essen­tial activ­i­ties. Coun­ty res­i­dents faced jail time and fines for leav­ing their homes unless it was for essen­tial business.
