Biden administration official Samantha Power violated federal law on Friday by riding an Amtrak train without a properly positioned face mask. Photos obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show the USAID administrator texting on her phone with a mask covering her chin, which the CDC has identified as incorrect and potentially dangerous.
The Amtrak website makes clear that not wearing a mask while onboard its trains is a violation of federal law:
Federal law requires all customers and employees to wear a mask at all times while onboard trains and in stations, regardless of vaccination status or state or local laws. Refusing to wear a mask is a violation of federal law; passengers may be subject to penalties under federal law, denied boarding, removed from the train and banned from future travel in the event of noncompliance.
The Free Beacon has learned that Power was not removed from the train despite her callous disrespect for not only the law, but also the health and safety of her fellow passengers.
Power is merely the latest example of a prominent Democrat flouting the mask requirements they frequently champion. See also:
