Atlanta mayor slams ’bizarre’ lawsuit by Georgia governor to block mask mandate

The Atlanta Mayor Bottoms called Georgia Gov. Kemp’s move to sue the city over mask mandate as bizarre. Kemp and Georgia AG Carr, in a suit filed in court argued that Bottoms overstepped her authority and she must obey Kemp’s executive orders under state law. Kemp has also clarified that the executive orders are intended to block Atlanta and at least 14 other local govts from mandated use of mask.

I don't understand why the argument has shifted to defending democracy and the constitution, as these being valid reasons for Kemp to block the mandates. Last time I checked we're all entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You can't get any of those if you're dead from the virus or if your family is. Kemp is impeding on the public health of the people he governs, and needs to go.
