Florida lawmaker urges Mar-a-Lago shutdown, citing video of maskless party

State Rep. Omari Hardy, D-West Palm Beach, sent a letter to the county’s assistant administrator Saturday highlighting the video and calling for Mar-a-Lago to be fined and closed.

The video in question shows dozens of people at a party without masks on as rapper Vanilla Ice performed on stage. Another video posted by Donald Trump Jr. on Facebook also showed the president’s son surrounded by people dancing and not wearing masks.

“Mar-a-Lago is a club. A club is a business. Businesses must comply with Palm Beach County’s mask order,” Hardy wrote in his letter.

Hardy said the event had the potential to be a “super-spreader” and that the resort should not be allowed to curtail the state’s mask mandate.
