Their punishment for this is to lose their jobs.
The biggest impact will most immediately be felt in the state of New York. The governor – a new person named Kathleen Courtney Hochul to replace the previous bad guy – is all behind the Biden order.

What happened to the old and settled concern for civil liberties, scientific inquiry and truth, minority rights, and bodily integrity?The political purge of institutions is part of a larger drive for purity in our society.
