Nevada Republicans, including Sparks MP, punished for defying mask rule


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.
