Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is the latest Democrat member of Congress to be caught in mandate-free Florida maskless after blaming Republicans for the continued coronavirus pandemic.
Less than a week ago, Swalwell tweeted, “As we end 2021, mired in a deadly pandemic, you should know who has prolonged it. THESE GUYS. Republican liars. Your vacation cancelled. Your kids back to virtual learning. And back to masks everywhere. For blame look no farther than #TheseGuys.”

Despite his claim, it did not appear to stop the Californian politician from taking a vacation to the Republican-governed state of Florida where he was caught on camera maskless inside of a Miami hotel.
Here are some photos published by the Daily Mail:
The awkward situation involving Swalwell comes only days after his Democrat colleague Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was also caught not wearing a mask while visiting a restaurants and bar in the Sunshine State.

Rules for thee but not for me! What a hypocrite! AOC at crowded bar in Florida. Funny how she flys to the state that has loose mask laws but has publicly stated she will remain wearing masks even being vaccinated. pic.twitter.com/IoZzrE5LOi
