The Mayor Of Austin Is Being Torn Apart For Taking A Vacation To Mexico Amid COVID-19
The Mayor of Austin, much like every other mayor in the country, has had a pretty tough year, but his latest move has citizens livid.
Mayor Steve Adler strongly encouraged Austonians to stay home and avoid gatherings of 10 or more people as COVID-19 cases continue to increase, the only problem is that he did not listen to his own advice and took a vacation to Mexico.
The Mayor even sent a video update from his estate in Mexico and completely failed to mention that he was in another country.

Mayor Steve Adler
Adler along with seven other friends and family boarded a private jet and headed to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico the day after hosting an outdoor wedding reception with 20 or more people in attendance according to the Austin American Statesmen.
The Mayor has since apologized for taking the trip, saying that he needs to set a clearer example.
It's safe to say that residents of the state capital are still upset despite his apology.
