Alaska Airlines said that suspended Alaska state senator Lora Reinbold for violating its mask policies. Reinbold was seen on video arguing with gate agents at Juneau International Airport about the mask rules. “We have notified Senator Lora Reinbold that she is not permitted to fly with us for her continued refusal to comply with employee instruction regarding the current mask policy,” the airline said in statement. Reinbold says she learned about the airlines’ decision before any “due process” was conducted and that she was “reasonable” with all employees.
