OLYMPIA, WA – APRIL 19: Gubernatorial candidate and anti-tax activist Tim Eyman speaks during a ‘Hazardous Liberty! Defend the Constitution!’ rally to protest the stay-at-home order at the Capitol building on April 19, 2020, in Olympia, Washington. Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee instituted the order last month to slow the spread of COVID-19. Many who attended did not follow social distancing guidelines or wear masks, but were there to support their right to assemble. They advocated that people should be allowed to go back to work.
