Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser is lifting most Covid-related mandates in that city:
DC @MayorBowser to lift most #COVID mandates. #vaccine mandate for indoor venues expires February 15. Indoor mask mandate expires February 28. Some mask requirements remain as do @dcpublicschools vaccine & mask mandates. @nbcwashington pic.twitter.com/THUsgZVPfP

However, not all city politicians want to let go of their beloved authoritah! One DC council member has decided not to try and override the mayor and keep vax mandates because the votes aren’t there.
I’m incredibly disappointed to share that I’ve withdrawn my emergency measure to reinstate the vaccine requirement in certain businesses. pic.twitter.com/yhsrYXVEMi

Where are our tiny violins?
Democrats’ internal polling was also heard.
The mayor and others checked which way the wind was blowing. https://t.co/L4bmNft0G4

Yep, the Democrat backpedal has been swift and simultaneous.
It’ll be OK. Promise. https://t.co/9KECINTEag

Disappointed a city official doesn’t realize the vax is not proven to prevent transmission of the virus and imposing this mandate on businesses does not help in the mission to limit illness in DC. Lucky for us she’s quitting her efforts due to fear of failure via an actual vote. https://t.co/OSqInksfA7

There will be NO emergency measure to reinstate the vax pass on D.C. businesses after all. Great news! https://t.co/QsVl4hyg6n

Obviously it’s not great news to those who are losing their grip on the ability to control people.

Can we have a conversation about the crime in Washington, D.C.?
Or are we just gonna continue to sweep it under the rug? https://t.co/Dx2HqWDgK8

DC Dems would prefer to keep that under the rug.
