Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort draws heat for maskless New Year’s Eve party

A newly elected state lawmaker from South Florida wants Palm Beach County to take on President Trump's Mar-a-Lago club for its New Year's Eve bash, at which many patrons and performers were seen without masks. 

State Rep. Omari Hardy, D-Lake Worth Beach, wrote a letter Friday evening to Todd Bonlarron, assistant county administrator for Palm Beach County, asking whether the county will take action against the private club for violating a countywide mandatory mask policy. 

"I recognize that the President is a powerful person and that his business, Mar-a-Lago is a daunting target for enforcement," Hardy wrote in an email that included a link to a Twitter post from the party that showed people without masks. "But as far as I know, the law still applies to the President and to his business." 

Hardy was a Lake Worth Beach City commissioner before resigning and being elected to the Florida state House in November.
