Georgia Governor, Atlanta Mayor Clash on Crime, Mask Mandates


When Governor Kemp spoke with Breitbart News on Monday, he also responded to the Atlanta mayor. Kemp called out Bottoms for prioritizing mask mandates over the rising murders and other crimes happening in her city. The Georgia governor furthermore noted that law enforcement officers aren’t even upholding Bottoms’ citywide mask order.

What is the solution?

Thus far, the Atlanta mayor has yet to present a solution to handling the crime in her city. In fact, Bottoms has not made any mention of this; instead, her focus remains directly on imposing more COVID mandates.

Meanwhile, reports continue to allege that Atlanta police officers face slaps on the wrist when they try to stop crime. Many Americans — in and out of Georgia — are of the view that Mayor Bottoms should handle the soaring lawlessness in her community before kicking up a fuss about face masks.

However, Bottoms’ brand of leadership is par for the course in leftist communities with Democrat leaders. Amid homicides, robberies, rapes, and more on the rise, Bottoms remains steadfastly determined to see her mask mandates happen.
