Boston Mayor’s ‘No Whites’ Party Did Not Violate Law, AG’s Office Says

Jen Smith, Daily Mail, January 2, 2024

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu did not violate state discrimination laws by holding a ‘no whites’ holiday party because the event was not open to the public, Massachusetts Attorney General has ruled.

Democrat Wu hosted the controversial event in December for ‘electeds of color’.

Her aides were only supposed to invite her six city council members ‘of color’ but they accidentally sent the event details to seven white members too.

Wu defended the event, insisting that because it is a ‘longstanding’ tradition and wasn’t her only holiday party, she sees no wrongdoing.

Massachusetts Attorney General Andrea Campbell received four complaints from the public, asking her to investigate.

But because the event was not open to the public, it did not violate public accommodation laws that prohibit discrimination, her office said.

Campbell, a former city council member herself, is yet to comment personally.

She was elected in November last year as the state’s first black Attorney General.

Campbell previously ran unsuccessfully against Wu in the mayoral race. She is a staunch Democrat whose campaign focus included police oversight and abortion access.

Her twin brother Andre died in police custody in 2012 while awaiting trial, and her father was also a repeat offender.

Her mother died in a car accident while driving to visit him in prison while she and her twin were babies.

In her role as the state’s top attorney, Campbell advises advises the executive branch of state government, and defends actions and proceedings on behalf of the state.

She is not publicly linked to Democrat super-donor George Soros, who has endorsed and bankrolled other prosecutors in the state, including disgraced former US Attorney Rachael Rollins.

Rollins resigned in May this year amid a slew of accusations that she’d abused her power to help elect another liberal prosecutor into her former job.

She won notoriety in her role as Suffolk County District Attorney for refusing to prosecute crimes.
