Idaho lieutenant gov. appears in video slamming virus rules, whether ‘a pandemic may or may not be occurring’

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/10/30/idaho-covid-lieutenant-governor/

The video shows Idaho Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin (R) sitting in the driver’s seat of a pickup truck, a Bible in her hand, as she rails against the coronavirus restrictions carried out in the state she helps lead.

“We recognize that all of us are by nature, free and equal, and have certain inalienable rights,” she says, grabbing a gun and placing it on top of the Bible with a wide smile on her face. “Among which are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing and protecting property and pursuing happiness and securing safety."

The video, released earlier this week by a libertarian group called the Idaho Freedom Foundation, claims that Gov. Brad Little (R) infringed liberties to battle a pandemic that “may or may not be occurring."

It’s the latest broadside in a months-long conflict between McGeachin and Little over how to handle a virus that has killed at least 615 in the state and infected more than 62,000. In contrast to Little’s phased reopening strategy, McGeachin has consistently argued for a looser approach — even amid a recent uptick in infections.

On Monday, after Little announced he would again limit gatherings of 50 or more people, McGeachin pushed back on her Facebook page, saying she was “disappointed” in the governor’s decision.
