The news is out: [Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp dropped a lawsuit against Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and other city officials over a mask mandate and other coronavirus restrictions.
Mr. Kemp said in a statement Thursday that discussions with Ms. Bottoms to settle their differences had reached an impasse and that he had asked the state’s attorney general to withdraw the suit.
In July, a Georgia judge ordered the governor and mayor into mediation, after two previous judges recused themselves from the case, citing potential conflicts of interest.
Mr. Kemp, a Republican, had filed the lawsuit against the Democratic mayor in July after she issued a requirement that people in her city wear face coverings in public. She also rolled back plans to reopen the city, saying the actions were needed to counter a wave of new coronavirus cases in the state.]
All the drugs and hard liquor, in the entire world, couldn’t justify the level of stupidity required to be Brian Kemp.
