About The Scandal
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that
"when it comes to massage therapy and sexual misconduct allegations in Georgia… 25 of the 26 sexual misconduct complaints lodged with the state over the past three years resulted in zero public disciplinary action."
As Secretary of State, Brian Kemp's office has oversight over massage therapists.
But after a therapist pleaded guilty to assaulting a woman during a massage, Brian Kemp's office RENEWED the therapist's license. Worse, the therapist had a pattern of sexually assaulting women.
As Secretary of State, Brian Kemp has always done what’s best for him, even if it’s bad for Georgia.
