Malkin: ‘Mayor Safe Space For Rioters doesn’t want to run Baltimore anymore,’ not seeking re-election

After dividing her city and leaving destruction in her wake, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said she would not seek re-election.

“It was a very difficult decision, but I knew I needed to spend time focused on the city’s future, not my own,” she said at a Friday news conference.

Perhaps she should have been focused on her city’s future when she decided to give rioters “space to destroy” Baltimore after the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody in April.

“I’m focused right now on governing rather than campaigning for mayor at this critical time in our history,” Blake said.

Conservative snark queen Michelle Malkin was among the first to blast the mayor on Twitter.
