The Illinois General Assembly had convened in Springfield for the first time in 10 weeks, with desks spaced apart and most members wearing masks. Prior to reconvening the session after caucus, House Republican Leader Jim Durkin, of Western Springs, spoke for several minutes with Bailey. Durkin wore a mask during their conversation, Bailey did not.

When the House returned to session, Durkin urged all members to comply with the new rules. “We cannot ignore nor compromise the health and safety of every member of the General Assembly, their family members, every one of our staffers who works tirelessly for us,” Durkin said. "The bottom line is we have to put them before ourselves," Durkin added before lawmakers approved the rule on a 97-12 vote.

“Put them before ourselves”? What the hell kind of Republican is this guy, anyway? Representative Bailey was having none of it.

Democratic Rep. Emanuel “Chris” Welch, of Hillside, made a motion to remove Bailey from the House proceedings after Bailey responded “I will not,” when he was asked to come into compliance with the face covering requirement in the newly-adopted rules. The House voted 81-27 in favor of Bailey’s removal. Bailey voted against the measure. Moments later he was escorted off the floor after saying he would not wear a mask. He walked out without incident.

Bailey, it should be noted, also is one of several Illinois legislators who is suing Governor J.B. Pritzker over Pritzker’s emergency executive orders regarding the pandemic. Bailey even got a judge to agree with him. The judge issued a temporary stay of the executive orders, but also ruled that the stay applied only to Bailey himself. As subsequent events have proven, Bailey has employed his get-off-the-couch-free card to become something of a public-health nuisance.

This is one man, one individual. He is not stereotypical of anyone or anything.

Attempting to label him so smacks of desperation.

There are currently 59 Senators in the Illinois General Assembly: 37 Democrats and 22 Republicans.

Illinois has 118 State House members: 74 (Democrats), 44 (Republicans)

Before the Illinois State House approved the mask requirement, Bailey spoke to his colleagues to explain why he did not support the rule. "Looking around this room, I see seats are spaced adequately at more than 6 feet apart," Bailey said near the beginning of Wednesday's special session, which was held at the Bank of Springfield Center instead of the Illinois State Capitol to provide members with more space in which to practice social distancing.

"We've heard this message before: that if you cannot be 6 feet apart, then wear your mask. We're more than 6 feet apart."

In April, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued guidelines for wearing masks and recommended all Americans do so "where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain," adding that masks were important "especially in areas of significant community-based transmission."

"However, there is currently no evidence that wearing a mask (whether medical or other types) by healthy persons in the wider community setting, including universal community masking, can prevent them from infection with respiratory viruses, including COVID-19." World Health Organization, April 6, 2020 Interim Guidance

"Between 2004 and 2016 at least a dozen research or review articles have been published on the inadequacies of face masks. 5,6,11,17,19,20,21,25,26,27,28,31 All agree that the poor facial fit and limited filtration characteristics of face masks make them unable to prevent the wearer inhaling airborne particles. In their well-referenced 2011 article on respiratory protection for healthcare workers, Drs. Harriman and Brosseau conclude that, “facemasks will not protect against the inhalation of aerosols.” 11 https://www.oralhealthgroup.com/features/face-masks-dont-work-revealing-review/

It's pure window dressing, to make it appear that the Illinois Legislature cares, as they continue to do nothing constructive.

Their only mantra will continue to be what it has been for almost three and one half years: "It's all Trump's fault!"

You mean the sound science that used models that had to be revised weekly? That science?
