Gov. J.B. Pritzker for the first time acknowledged his wife and daughter were in Florida before Illinois statewide stay-at-home order took effect in March and just recently returned to Chicago.
He was being very private and very reserved because there are threats to my safety and to their safety."
You have seen that there are people that stand outside the Thompson Center and stand outside the Capitol in Springfield, holding, I mean, hateful signs that reference me personally and that suggest, if not say, but suggest the potential for violence."
"If his family cant even heed the guidance of his own stay at home order, how does he expect Illinois voters to do the same? said an email from the Republican National Committee with the subject line: Governor Pritzker cant take the heat.
Pritzker said on Friday he hoped that an unnamed Republican super political action committee thats pushing stories like this about my family, would stop doing it because they are putting my children and family in danger.
But he also acknowledged his family had only recently left Florida, where they had been staying since at least early March, before his stay-at-home order was issued. He owns an equestrian farm there.
Pritzker owns a horse farm in Racine, Wisconsin, and he indicated that his family was there.
I just will say we have a working farm. Theyre there now. There are animals on that farm, that its an essential function to take care of animals at a farm, so thats what theyre doing, he said.
A Pritzker spokeswoman later clarified that the family is at home in Chicago and have visited the farm but havent stayed there.

The unanswered question: Did Pritzker skip town to join his family in Wisconsin?
If you think the Pritzkers were actually pitching hay and shoveling horse manure... INSERT YOUR OWN PUNCHLINE HERE.
Rules for thee but not for me. Get the tar!
Does the zhit flow both ways?
That guy is nasty and ugly.
It does unless you got the JB exemption. Effing tyrants. Hate them all. Lord forgive me.
If there's one thing Democommies understand, it's that some animals on the farm are waaayyy more equal than others.
That guy is nasty and ugly.”
Careful you will end up in a trunk next to a shovel and headed to the desert.
He wasn’t being quiet and reserved. He was being a hypocrite as all Dem gov’s and mayors are.
Here in Texas our Governor is NOT managing like a Fascist jerk and guess what?
No signs referencing him personally with suggestions of violence.
Things actually do go well when a Governor is not a Fascist jerk.
Stupid fat f**k keep voting for him you idiots in IL
OK, he’s now confirmed as not only a gargantuan, repulsive, gelatinous hunk o’ nausea on two legs, but also as a liar and hypocrite extraordinaire.
Family probably fled to get away from him. The wife in particular. Can you imagine what it must be like to have that continent-sized slug pawing at you in the middle of the night? (Shudder)
Jabba P is either a yellow backed oaf or a Bullshiter, or both! Disgusting man whose family has a crooked history in central Florida. An insider, elite, skunk.
Sadly, just about everybody who voted for pritzker knew what they were getting when they voted for him. Maybe nobody realized that a crisis up this bad would come along and expose him as the lower he is.
Even sadder, the same people will cite for him or some equally bad loser in the next election. This state produced Abraham Lincoln and ronald Reagan, along with Eddie ohare and a long list of real.people and heroes. Now it’s the dump known for Barack Obama and JB the hutt pritzker.
Look at all the work the rich equestrian hobbyists have to do AND at more than one horse farm! They must be exhausted, no wonder they have no time for the shutdown. It’s downright heroic!
The “hidden lede” of this article...
‘Freed’ areas do better economically.
Many Governors, like Pritzker depend on votes from high-density populations for election.
So they quash rural areas to get urban votes.
Fourteenth Amendment Mean anything Gov?
Get his family out of the state, then lock down all the plebs. Like the state health director in Pennsylvania who sent COVID postive patients to nursing homes. After she moved her/his* mother out of one and put her in a hotel.
*: Her/his because he/she is a trannie...
Wisconsinites who venture into IL are supposed to quarantine for 14 days upon their return.
Does the zhit flow both ways?
In SW WI, we have had Chicagoans escaping up here since March. AirBnB rentals were utilized. Saw no self-isolation. Brought their dogs. They were fishing along our river frontage before season opening without permission and asking if any restaurants were open for sit-down meals.
Totally self-absorbed, arrogant, and ignorant.
