“As Katy Grimes of the California Globe notes, some 20 months after Gov. Gavin Newsom locked down the state, San Francisco city and county still do not allow the public to attend public hearings in person. The rule proved no barrier to a November 6 wedding of Ivy Getty at San Francisco City hall, with a host of notables in attendance and officiated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. According to a November 8 Vogue feature, the attendees included California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who was photographed sans mask last year at the upscale French Laundry. In one of the wedding photos, Newsom wears a mask but many others do not. If embattled Californians saw the proceedings a blatant double standard it would be hard to blame them, and they also have cause to be puzzled.” (11/14/21)
