As California gets ready to impose curfews and shut the state down — AGAIN — Dem lawmakers are in Maui partying with lobbyists. And we mean that literally. They’re in Hawaii. With lobbyists. In the middle of a pandemic:
The pandemic may have "canceled" 2020, but it did not derail an annual gathering of lobbyists and lawmakers on the shores of Maui that brought people from across the country to a luxury resort this week https://t.co/rPrZleb7cu

YOUR business is closed. YOUR kids can’t go to school. YOUR movements are restricted. But when they’re asked to live by the same rules? HELL NO, THEY’RE GOING TO MAUI:
Unbelievable. Will the hypocrisy ever end from our elected leaders? First Nancy Pelosi w/ the hair salon, then Gov. Newsom w/ his private dinner with his lobbyist buddy, now we have CA lawmakers at a conference in Hawaii while YOU are told to stay home. https://t.co/VMnF13crrJ

This comes days after Gov. Newsom had to apologize after breaking his own rules and going to a birthday party for an adviser at one of the most expensive restaurants in the state:
The Governor said no gathering, then he gathered at a posh restaurant, breaking his own rules.
And now, state legislators who no doubt are telling their constituents not to gather, are gathering at a tropical luxury resort.https://t.co/KBwNNASK1F

The ruling class has their own set of rules:
French Laundry dinner with governor and top lobbyist/advisor. Trip to Maui joining lawmakers and lobbyists.
As California re-locks down, elected officials are still getting out there…
