Schimpf: Pritzker’s latest mask “executive edict” yet another “divisive act”



Paul Schimpf

CHICAGO – Paul Schimpf, Republican candidate for Governor of Illinois, issued the following statement in response to Pritzker's mask mandate issued Thursday:

“JB Pritzker has lost all moral authority to lead on pandemic response by failing to follow the rules he set for others.  If Democrats believe our current situation is so dire to require a mask mandate, they should take up the issue during their legislative session that is scheduled for August 31st.  Absent legislative action, these executive edicts are yet another divisive act by a failed governor who believes he wields unlimited power.”    

Paul Schimpf served as a State Senator for the 58th Senate District, was the Minority Spokesperson for the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, and, during his time as an active-duty Marine Corps officer, was the chief American attorney advisor to Iraqi prosecutors in the trial of Saddam Hussein.
