Leigh-Allyn Baker, an actress who starred as the mom in Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie,” was at a school board meeting in Franklin, Tennessee and advocated against the school’s mask mandate. She said that her children would not be able to be vaccinated because of medical exceptions but that she still would not have them wear masks.
“My name is Leigh-Allyn Baker and I’m a California refugee. I gave up everything there, a really successful Hollywood career, television shows. Gave it all up for freedom and to come to this friendly place of Tennessee and be greeted with open arms. And I love it here,” she began. “I wanted to tell you that I have 2 vaccine injured children and they have medical exemptions cause after their seizures and the hospitalization after all of their immunizations, I was granted — obviously — a medical exemption. So my children are those rare children that will just not be able to get the vaccine. And still I would never put them in a mask because their brain need oxygen to grow. Which the neurologist can confirm.”
“Anyway, the real part of the clown show is that you all think that you actually have the authority to mandate this,” Baker continued. “Because there are these books that I have, and I have them as a gift for you: the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and the Federalist Papers. Also, the Bible. And these guarantee my freedom and yours and our children's to breathe oxygen.”
The Williamson County Board of Education approved the mandate Tuesday night. It will begin Thursday and run until at least Sept. 12, according to the district.
