Foul Mouthed Riga Mayor

The Riga City Council's opposition parties said in a joint statement on Monday that they would demand resignation of Riga Mayor Nils Usakovs on December 23. The opposition made the decision after Usakovs used profanities during the December 17 emergency city council meeting. City Council member Viktors Molotovs, in a press briefing said “The Riga City Council demands respect. There is no room in the hallowed halls of Riga’s City Council for the kind of profane language Mayor Usakovs has used.” When asked what words mayor had said that had offended them, Molotovs responded “ ‘transparency,’ ‘ethics,’ ‘responsibility.’ He wouldn’t stop I tell you. I even heard him say ‘pay cut,’ ‘civic pride,’ and ‘prosecution,’ if you’ll excuse my language. Does he kiss his mother with that mouth?”
