Democrat Governor Threatening Business Owners With One Year In Jail for Reopening

Linkedin Share

The multi-billionaire governor of Illinois, Democrat J.B. Pritzker, is threatening to toss business owners in jail for an entire year if they reopen during his draconian lockdown order.

This is America, now?

From Illinois Policy:

Members of a key legislative committee are scheduled to meet May 20 to discuss a newly filed emergency rule that criminalizes businesses who defy Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s stay at home order.

Pritzker amended Illinois Department of Public Health rules so business owners can be charged with a Class A misdemeanor for violating his closure order. The rule immediately took effect Friday, and now business owners can face a maximum penalty fine of $2,500 and one year in prison. Since this new rule was filed as an emergency rule, it would be effective for 150 days.
