Illinois Republicans Suing Governor
June 16th, 2020
The Illinois Republican Party is suing the Governor over the crowd limitations he imposed during the COVID-19 outbreak. The Republicans say the order violates equal protection when the Governor has allowed Churches to be open and allowed protestors to march. State GOP Chairman Tim Schneider says the only thing providing a check on the Democrats power, is the Illinois Republican Party. The political party filed the federal suit in Chicago. Pritzker spokeswoman Jordan Audayyeh says the suit is about scoring political points and criticizing civil rights protests supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.
