Michelle Steel Attends Indoor Fundraiser with No Masks and No Social Distancing

Oct 26, 2020

LAGUNA BEACH, CA — In a stunning display of disregard for the health of Orange County families, this weekend Michelle Steel attended an indoor fundraiser with no masks and no social distancing. This event is in direct violation of public health orders.

Congressman Harley Rouda issued the following statement reacting to the event:

“As Orange County’s top official, Michelle Steel violated public health orders to attend an indoor and mask-less fundraiser. Under her leadership, Orange County residents have lost their lives and livelihoods during the coronavirus crisis. Michelle Steel’s blatant disregard for the health, safety, and economic security of the community she supposedly serves is sickening.

Orange County families buried their loved ones alone. Grandparents watched their grandchildren be married over Zoom. Students celebrated their graduations with zero pomp and circumstance. Our community has sacrificed to protect public health and help our economy.

Michelle Steel’s actions have made clear that she will not serve California’s 48th district — she will only serve herself.”
