There is not a conservative in this country that would not like to see Lori Lightfoot removed as the mayor of Chicago.
The city was in bad shape before she became mayor and it has gone considerably downhill since she has been elected.
Now, combative text messages have been leaked between Lightfoot and other city officials that show a dictator-like attitude by the polarizing mayor of Chicago.
The Chicago Tribune broke the report after it obtained a significant amount of text messages from Lightfoot.
The texts were exchanged with aldermen and other city workers.
When the Tribune initially made its FOIA request, Lightfoot’s staff refused to release the documents, but after a lawsuit was threatened, they complied.
The texts give a far better picture of just how much turmoil is happening in City Hall right now.
In one text, Lightfoot wrote, “It has everything to do with (Fraternal Order of Police president) John Cantazara.
“That racist SOB, trying to prove that he has more power than the black mayor and the black supt.
“And Burke, per usual, found a dumb, dumb person of color to do his bidding. It is classic racial politics.”
In a text threat discussing Byron Sigcho-Lopez, Lightfoot stated, “Shitso is an a——!
“There are no words for that jackass.”
These types of texts continue with numerous other city officials.
When asked about the texts, Lightfoot’s office stated, “The past two years have been some of the most challenging times for local elected leaders.
“Governing is a tough business. Emotions can at times get the best of each of us.
“The mayor is fully focused on working together with (aldermen) and other stakeholders to continue to address the very serious issues that face our city every day.”
Now, let’s be honest… what would the outrage be right now if these texts had come from a Republican, any Republican?
This should be enough to take Lightfoot down, but I just don’t know if anyone in the party will have the courage to do that.
Based on the media’s response to this story thus far, well, let’s just say they are not very interested in it for some reason.
So, we have a mayor who cannot stop crime, belittles staff, including people of color, and it’s no big deal simply because she is a Democrat.
As I stated just the other day, if the people of Chicago re-elect this atrocity in the next election, that city deserves everything it gets on the crime front.
