Stay at Home Orders Don’t Apply to Dem Governors and Their Families

Rumors had been rising that Governor Pritzker of Illinois might be issuing stay at home orders for others, his wife wasn’t the stay at home type. Mary Konkol of The Patch finally wrote up the rumors while making every possible excuse for Mrs. Pritzker.

In Crain’s Chicago Business columnist Greg Hinz’s day-in-the life tale of Illinois’ rookie governor amid the pandemic, we learned Pritzker watched “Tiger King” on Netflix, a how he usually ends his day — “a little dinner, then he chats with his son and makes more calls” — but nothing of the first lady or his daughter.

The governor didn’t mention his wife when reporters asked the billionaire about how he’s doing physically and emotionally under his own stay-at-home order.

As things turn out, as the governor makes regular public pleas for Illinoisans to be “All In” during the extended stay-at-home fight to slow the spread of COVID-19, Mrs. Pritzker has been out of state, sources told Patch.

Specifically, the first lady has been spending time at their $12-million equestrian estate in Wellington, just down the horse trail from Bruce Springsteen, Bill Gates and Billy Joel, the family purchased shortly after J.B. was elected governor last year.
