With New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo initiating lockdown restrictions leading up to the US Thanksgiving celebration on Nov. 26, 2020, one New York sheriff has already announced he won’t be enforcing those restrictions:

The Blaze explains:

Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino responded by announcing that his deputies would not be enforcing Cuomo’s new restrictions.

Giardino, who holds a law degree, explained that he does not believe Cuomo’s latest executive order is constitutional.

“With regard to the Thanksgiving Executive Order, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office will NOT be enforcing it against our County residents,” Giardino wrote in a Facebook post.

“Frankly, I am not sure it could sustain a Constitutional challenge in Court for several reasons including your house is your castle. And as a Sheriff with a law degree I couldn’t in good faith attempt to defend it Court, so I won’t,” he explained. “Who and how many people you invite in to your home is your business, unlike outdoor gatherings which may receive a police response if disorderly or other violations of public nuisance laws occur.”

Gov. Cuomo has always fancied himself as a self-proclaimed expert on fighting COVID-1984 and has even written a book telling the world how well he did.
