"[Kemp] will instead address the issue in a new executive order this coming Saturday. [...] In defending his lawsuit last month, Kemp said at a news conference that he's "confident that Georgians don't need a mandate to do the right thing."

Yeah, nothing quite like depending upon the irresponsible and stupid to do the right thing.

Yeah, who needs laws?
Not Georgians, they'll do the right thing.

These "leaders" are the opposite of leaders. It's disgusting.

If a city wants to have a higher standard than the state that's their choice.

Makes one wonder how much the taxpayer had to pay for that political stunt. And many lives it may have cost.

More criminal negligence.

Kemp is straddling the fence to save himself from Trump's twitter wrath.

Amazing, isn't it, how fast Republican governors like Kemp have become an Enemy of the People.

That's right, an ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE.

So shameful, so destructive, so un-American. So painful to watch.

He knew he was going to lose the lawsuit, so now he is trying a different approach?

It's not over. He's simply shifting the burden of being the plaintiff in mask mandate litigation upon the City of Atlanta. Both Atlanta and the State of Georgia will continue to pay legal fees for Kemp's subservience to a death cult.

Will eventually do the right thing after exploring all other options.

Come on, Kemp. Don't let a bunch of dead citizens stop you from doing the wrong thing. RINO!
