You enjoy the view.”

    Calexico has voted to oust the first transgender mayor in California in a long awaited recall vote as the politician blames transphobia for the decision. Mayor Raul Ureña, 26, identifies as a transgender woman and prefers she/they pronouns. Ureña was elected into office in 2020 at the age of 23 and came out as gender-fluid and transgender in 2022 - after her re-election. She eventually started wearing dresses and makeup in official appearances, which riled up voters who felt duped because they believed they were voting for a gay cisgender man and not a transgender woman. However, on April 16...

    Los Angeles voters were asked to back a “mansion tax” to raise money for homeless housing after passing a $1.2 billion bond measure to build the same. Now Mayor Karen Bass wants rich residents and businesses to pitch in more money. During her State of the City address, the mayor called on business leaders, charities and wealthy residents to donate money to get homeless Angelenos off the streets, the Los Angeles Times reported. Bass urged those with the means to help buy or lease buildings that can be converted into housing for L.A.’s 46,000 homeless residents. “We have brought the...

    A socialist mayor in Brussels ordered police to shut down the National Conservatism Conference being held in the city while Brexit leader Nigel Farage was speaking on Tuesday. In comments recorded in footage of Mrs Braverman speaking to journalists as seen by Breitbart News, the former Home Secretary said: “I’m here with likeminded democrats, democratically elected politicians, leaders and experts in their fields and we are here talking about talking about the issues that matter to the British people… securing our borders, making our communities safer, how to protect our countries. “And it’s a real shame the thought police instructed...

    A California mayor who came out as transgender after being elected to office is facing a recall vote — blaming it on transphobic “bullies” despite outrage over rampant homelessness and crime. Raúl Ureña, 26, was elected mayor of the border town of Calexico with 70% of the vote in 2020 — before coming out as transgender and gender fluid following her re-election victory in 2022, the Los Angeles Times reports. The mayor — who accepts “all the pronouns,” with a preference for “she” — went from office attire of suit and pants for a penchant for low-cut dresses showing off...

    During a portion of an interview with CNBC that was recorded in February and aired on Thursday’s “Cities of Success,” Denver Mayor Mike Johnston responded to a question on if the city was too open to migrants and too generous by stating that “it’s a balance. We want to be a welcoming city” but doing that without federal help “requires shared sacrifice, it requires compromise. So, we are both making cuts to city budgets to meet this financial need, and we are making cuts to the amount of services we can provide to the migrants that arrive and to the...

    The Village of Dolton, Illinois' monthly town hall meeting has made national headlines yet again for fiery confrontations with scandal-ridden mayor Tiffany Henyard. Henyard has been accused of misdeeds ranging from weaponizing police in retaliatory business raids to spending taxpayer money on luxuries like traveling to Las Vegas. Last month, Henyard reportedly vetoed the board’s resolution to probe her spending over purported misuse of funds. While the FBI has allegedly already begun to investigate Henyard for purportedly misusing her local police force, the board’s resolution had called for the FBI to do further investigation into her spending of the town’s...

    Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who was convicted on federal bribery, money laundering and other corruption charges in 2014, has completed his 10-year sentence and is asking a federal judge to restore his rights to carry a gun and vote. But prosecutors said Thursday that the New Orleans-based judge has no authority to restore Nagin‘s federal firearms rights, and that it’s up to the state of Texas, where he now lives, to decide on his voting privileges. Nagin, 67, recently filed a court motion in New Orleans, noting that his federal prison time and supervision were officially over on...

    Mayor Eric Adams took aim at a woke criminal defense lawyer who downplayed the murder of Police Officer Jonathan Diller as a “rare occurrence” — and instead focused on cops who have “killed” citizens. The mayor fired back while talking to anti-cop, “abolitionist thinker” Olayemi Olurin on iHeartMedia’s “The Breakfast Club” Friday morning — after she tried to rip Adams for not caring enough about alleged police brutality. Adams quickly tried to shut her down. “I’m not going to dismiss the loss of a life of an innocent person that wears a uniform,” he said. The confrontation on the show...

    Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott (D) has accused his critics of racism after many labeled him the “DEI mayor” following the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge earlier this week. The collapse occurred in the early hours of Tuesday morning after a cargo ship lost power and collided into the bridge. Six people were presumed dead after the bridge fell. Soon after the collapse, social media users — including Utah state Rep. Phil Lyman (R) and Florida congressional candidate Anthony Sabatini (R) — attributed the tragedy to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Scott on Wednesday told MSNBC’s Joy Reid that...

    During an appearance on CNN on Tuesday, Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott asked the media to stop showing footage of the Francis Scott Key Bridge’s collapse in his city, suggesting the footage could have a detrimental impact on family of victims and people in his city. “Well, it was something out of an action movie,” he said. “It’s something you never think you would see. And being here, right now, looking at it, is even more surreal. And it just makes you think about, again, those families — those individuals that were on that bridge. Those folks, even on that vessel,...

    CHICAGO - Mayor Brandon Johnson’s administration reversed itself Friday, announcing migrants will no longer start being evicted Saturday from Chicago’s migrant shelter system. It’s the mayor’s latest about-face in his handling of a 60-day shelter limit policy that has seen months of delays and backlash. However, the administration said they will evict 35 migrants Sunday, and the pace of evictions after that is unclear. During a Friday briefing with City Hall reporters, Johnson’s deputy chief-of-staff Cristina Pacione-Zayas confirmed the change ahead of Saturday’s deadline for the first group of migrants required to leave the shelters. The mayor had told reporters...

    Top Mayor Eric Adams aide Winnie Greco is being investigated by the feds for potentially using workers at a Queens mall to hide campaign donations to Hizzoner, law-enforcement sources told The Post on Friday. The FBI launched raids Thursday on two homes Greco owns on Gillespie Avenue in Pelham Bay in The Bronx — as well as the offices of the New World Mall in Flushing — over the alleged possible illegal straw donor scheme, sources said. The 61-year-old longtime mayoral adviser suffered a “medical episode” during the morning raids — which included federal agents hauling off boxes of files...
