We’re hearing that Tracy Reed, brother of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed has resigned.
Tracy Reed has caused some controversy for allegedly driving city vehicles with an expired license.
In addition, officials confirmed the city’s law department is investigating an Oct. 28 traffic stop in which Tracy Reed, who has been employed by the city of Atlanta for 12 years, was apparently allowed to drive away without a ticket after being stopped while driving with a suspended license.
At that time, there was an outstanding warrant for his arrest stemming from a failure to appear in court on Oct. 6 to answer charges of driving with a suspended license. The fact that he was allowed to drive away that night raised questions of whether he received special treatment from the police.
UPDATE: After hearing a clip of Mayor Reed on WGST. I think he deserves some praise. I doubt he tried to cover this up. Also, his brother was wise to resign so as to not cause the Mayor more embarrassment.
