(ThePatriotSource.com)- Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee deemed the “President-elect” despite evidence of widespread election fraud that changed the results, reportedly offered Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms a role in his cabinet…but she turned him down.
The news comes from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which cited Bottoms’ senior adviser Rashad Taylor. The outlet said that the mayor “respectfully declined” the offer owing to her commitment to the people of her city.
Bottoms was at one point reportedly at the top of Joe Biden’s list for vice-presidential candidates, seemingly because she is a female, Black Democrat. Joe Biden and his campaign team made it very clear that he would choose a female vice-presidential candidate. Ultimately, Bottoms came second to Indian-America Senator Kamala Harris.
“Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms was honored to have been offered a role in the Cabinet, which she respectfully declined,” Bottoms’ spokesperson said. “The Mayor’s focus remains on the people of Atlanta and the great state of Georgia…out of respect for the process, and the other candidates under consideration, no additional comment will be forthcoming on this matter at this time.”
Neither the Biden camp nor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ office responded to requests for comment from various mainstream media outlets earlier this week, and it is unclear what role Bottoms was offered by the Biden camp.
A refusal to say what position she was offered, and a statement saying no further comment will be given, could be interpreted as an indication that there is bad blood between Biden and Bottoms, and that the Atlanta mayor has not forgiven the former vice president for not choosing her to be the VP pick.
However, that also seems unlikely given how Bottoms was an early support of Biden.
“We know Joe, and Joe knows us,” she said in August. “He’s known working people all his life. He’s a blue-collar guy that never forgot where he came from…he knows the importance of a job is more than just wages.”
What, like President Donald Trump, who donated his annual salary to charity every year?
Some reportedly speculated that Bottoms was offered the role of United States Ambassador of the Bahamas, but that suggestion was shot down in the statement that said she was “never offered an ambassadorship.”
