Atlanta Mayoral Candidate Mary Norwood Caught On Tape Using Racially-Coded Language
Less than a week before the run off election that could leave Atlanta with its first white mayor in more than 40 years, we're learning that one of the candidates was caught on tape using some racially-coded language.

According to a recording obtained by rolling out dot com, Atlanta mayoral candidate Mary Norwood used racially coded language during a private meeting held by the Buckhead Young Republicans in June.
