Kennesaw mayor responds to critics after dressing in drag for charity event


KENNESAW, Ga. – Pictures of Kennesaw’s mayor dressed in drag for a benefit concert are causing controversy on social media.

Channel 2’s Tom Jones spoke with the mayor Monday night, and he said it was all done for a good cause.

Mayor Derek Easterling said he would do almost anything if it would help raise money for a good cause.

When he put on makeup, a wig and a risqué outfit, it had some people questioning his ability to lead this city.

“I try to put the fun in fundraiser,” Easterling told Jones. “I dressed up as Christina Aguilera.”

The racy costume had people on and off social media commenting about the mayor’s appearance.

“It definitely bothers me,” one resident told Jones.
