Albuquerque Tea Party president sues Lujan Grisham over coronavirus lockdown

The president of the Albuquerque (NM) Tea Party filed a federal lawsuit this week against New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, accusing her of violating his constitutional rights by issuing emergency orders to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Leland Taylor said in his complaint, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court, that the illness caused by the new strain of coronavirus is not serious enough for emergency orders, enforcement of restrictions on socializing is impossible, and the orders deny him the right to free assembly and worship.

Taylor also claimed in his suit that an antimalarial drug has a “100% cure rate” for COVID-19.
(Trump falsely claimed recently that the FDA had approved an untested combination of an antimalarial and an antibiotic as a cure for the illness)

Taylor is asking for $500,000 per day since March 13, when the governor’s first order was issued, and $1 million a day since another order issued Monday.

NH Republicans (a couple of 'em, anyway) have sued because they can't have a party meeting!
