Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms sees ‘personal retaliation’ behind Georgia governor’s mask lawsuit

Rachel Janfaza of CNN –

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms believes “personal retaliation” is behind Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp’s lawsuit challenging her decision to require masks in her city in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I do believe it’s personal retaliation and he sued us personally,” Bottoms told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day” Friday morning. “He did not sue the city of Atlanta. He filed suit against myself and our city council personally.”

The ongoing feud between Bottoms, a Democrat, and Kemp, a Republican, reached new heights Thursday when Kemp challenged her mask requirement, saying it violates his emergency order prohibiting local action from being more prohibitive than the state’s requirements.
