The mayor of Austin, Texas, Steve Adler, urged citizens to stay at home while he was on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
The video: Austin Mayor Adler in early November posted a video of himself, telling residents to “stay home if you can” because “this is not the time to relax.” “We are going to be looking really closely. … We may have to close things down if we are not careful,” Adler said in the video.
Background: However, what the mayor did not disclose is that at the time, he was in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a vacation at the family timeshare. He filmed the Facebook video message from Mexico, one night into the trip. The day before he posted the video, Adler boarded a private plane with eight guests, including members of his extended family, and flew to Cabo to vacation at the family timeshare.
