Is She Above the Law? Albany Restaurant Posts Video of Maskless Senator
The "Wear a Mask" signs are posted everywhere as you walk into the restaurant, but US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand didn't seem to pay them any mind. Watch the video posted below...
It's common knowledge for all New Yorkers that you must wear a mask inside restaurants for the safety of the staff and everyone around you, but in this instance, the rules don't seem to apply.
"The problem with NY politics in a nut shell. My Senator blowing past my manager before she can even ask her to put a mask on." -Innovo Kitchen
But Innovo Kitchen in Latham is not having any part of it, and they're certainly not giving Gillibrand a free pass on this one.
Over the weekend, the popular restaurant blasted the Senator on an Instagram post in which they showed a video of a hurried Gillibrand blowing past signs and a manager on her way to get her grub on, without wearing a mask.
Innovo Kitchen posted the video on their Instagram page and blasted her, writing:
"The problem with NY politics in a nut shell. My Senator blowing past my manager before she can even ask her to put a mask on. Walking right past a really big sign that says “masks required to enter” The masks are a mandate from the Governor. As good citizens, agree or not, we must follow our leaders. Her guest is graciously wearing one. I guess Senator Gillibrand thinks that the Governor is wrong or she is special and above the rules. " -Innovo Kitchen
