    The mayor of an Illinois city hit out at his wife’s “stunning lack of judgment” after she was busted by police attending a party at a bar in defiance of the state’s stay at home order issued amid the coronavirus outbreak.

    Alton Mayor Brant Walker said he is “embarrassed” by the incident, which occurred just days after he urged police to be more strict in implementing Governor J.B. Pritzker’s statewide order by issuing citations.

    The gathering took place in defiance of the order banning social gatherings and forcing the closure of all non-essential businesses, which came into effect on Saturday, March 21.
