Texas dad strips at school board meeting to support COVID-19 mask mandates

When one Texas dad wanted to show his support for requiring masks in school, he resorted to the naked truth †• literally.

The Lone Star State stopped enforcing Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) ban on mask mandates in schools last week, but the subject remains a contentious issue in the state.

During Monday night’s meeting of the Dripping Springs Independent School District, James Akers told board members the bare facts about masks in a speech he started fully clothed.

“I do not like the government, or any other entity, telling me what to do,” Akers said fully clothed, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “But sometimes I’ve got to push the envelope a little bit. And I’ve decided I’m not just going to talk about it, I’m going to walk the walk.”
