CARSON CITY, Nevada (AP) – Two Republican lawmakers in the state of Nevada were punished Thursday for failing to comply with restrictions in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Assembly women Annie Black of Clark County and Jill Dickman of Sparks went without a mask to the assembly, but declined to say whether or not they had received any vaccines on Thursday.
Dickman was escorted out of the Assembly after staff told her she would have to prove she had been vaccinated. She refused.
In an online vote, Black was denied her right to vote on the measures and address the chamber until she apologized. She remained in the Assembly.

I just got escorted out of assembly floor 4 without wearing a mask, even after the CDC guidelines changed. I refuse to share my private medical information, especially with politicians. No vaccination passport in the United States or NV except among the Ridiculous people! It’s time to stop making COVID a political issue !!
BREAKDOWN: the Democrats have just stripped me of my right to vote for not having produced a “vaccine passport”!https://t.co/SCUeh8YNfh “The House has found you guilty of violating Rule 150 of the Rules of the Assembly.
