House Majority Leader Al Carlson (R-Fargo) has introduced a bill to ban people from wearing masks in public places, supposedly as a safety precaution:
House Bill 1304 states, “An individual, with the intent to conceal that individual’s identity, may not wear a mask, hood, or other device that covers, hides, or conceals any portion of that individual’s face.”
The bill is apparently in response to protesters fighting the Dakota Access pipeline. But could it have an unexpected effect on Carlson himself?
The politician’s pink face is covered (concealed) by a white goatee (organic mask). Sounds like a possible violation to us.
If the bill passes, we’d advise Al to be careful while wearing that thing outside. It’s just not safe.
