Naive Liberal Texas Judge Enters Ebola Apartment Without Protection
Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins shocked the local press corps Thursday night when he and two female workers entered the apartment where America’s first Ebola patient was staying. He entered without any visible protection from possible exposure to the deadly virus.
Judge Jenkins entered the apartment to speak with the occupants who are now being held inside their home under a protection order requiring their compliance. He and two unknown women entered and were not visibly wearing gloves or any kind of mask or other form of protection from the virus.
Members of the local media expressed shock seeing the County Judge enter the apartment without protection. “What the hell is he doing going in there like that?” asked one television camera operator.
Jenkins and the two women emerged from the apartment after about 10 minutes. The apartment has yet to be decontaminated by hazmat crews that are currently awaiting government approval before cleaning can begin.
Jenkins came down from the apartment and met with law enforcement and security guards. It appeared he was making sure he was in a clear area where the news cameras could see him. After about two minutes, the judge and his entourage turned and walked away. A couple of reporters shouted “Judge, what are you doing here? What did you talk to her about?” Jenkins did not acknowledge the questions and walked away after getting a good photo op.
Jenkins has a history of ducking question from the media. In June, Jenkins agreed to do an interview with Breitbart Texas during the Texas Democratic Party’s state convention. The person who arranged the interview came to get this writer and when we returned, Jenkins had quickly disappeared never to be seen again at the convention. He apparently did not want to answer questions about the announcement he made during the convention that he was seeking to have the children who had entered the U.S. illegally housed in the Dallas area. Breitbart Texas is still waiting for a return call from the judge.
No explanation was given Thursday night for the Judge’s appearance at the apartment. It is not known at this time if the Judge will cancel any public appearances where he would normally be shaking a lot of hands after being inside the still contaminated apartment without protection.
