During a debate in Maine on Monday between the four candidates for U.S. Senate, Independent candidate Max Linn took a pair of scissors and cut up a handful of face masks in a repudiation of the state’s mask mandate.
Linn, who is a self-professed Trump supporter, said that he wanted to be the first senator in the United States “to say I protest government telling us what we have to wear and telling us what our businesses are necessary and what are unnecessary.”
