Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler – a Leftist who has allowed left-wing violence to fester in his city – is the latest Democrat caught ignoring COVID-19 restrictions they insist others follow.
In a story from The New York Times actually discussing that Oregon – a Democrat-controlled state – is “facing its worst virus surge,” the outlet included a photo of Wheeler and some others meeting inside a hotel without wearing face masks.
This story also includes an image we obtained of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler at a gathering inside a hotel last week.
His office says they were in compliance with the mask mandate because they were “actively eating and/or drinking.”

His office had a ready-to-go excuse for the Times, however, claiming the mayor and those around him were “actively eating and/or drinking,” which allows people to remove their masks indoors, per state rules. The picture does not help Wheeler’s case, showing glasses and bottles of water in the vicinity of the meeting but only one person actually “actively” drinking. Wheeler doesn’t appear to even have a glass near him.
