Democrat Georgia Mayor Charged With Burglary And Criminal Trespassing

Over the weekend, a Democrat Georgia Mayor was charged with burglary and criminal trespassing.

Khalid Kamau, the mayor of South Fulton in metropolitan Atlanta, was charged with criminal trespassing and first-degree burglary. 

Kamau was also ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation, according to NBC affiliate WXIA of Atlanta.

The police department forwarded a request for more information to the city’s public affairs director, who declined to provide details citing an “ongoing investigation.”

“The City of South Fulton is committed to upholding the law and ensuring that all individuals, regardless of their position, are subject to the same fair and just treatment,” said Jacqueline Howell, the interim director of public affairs.

The now acting mayor of South Fulton says business will continue as normal in the city despite Mayor Khalid Kamau’s arrest.

“It’s kind of like that break glass in case of emergency, but you never anticipate an emergency,” said South Fulton Mayor Pro Tempore Natasha Williams-Brown. “So, I certainly never expected that I would actually have to step into the role.”
