Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blames election loss on racism, gender

By Yaron Steinbuch
March 1, 2023

Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed racism and her gender for her landslide defeat in her re-election bid, as Chicagoans wary of the rising crime of her watch celebrated her fall from “political rock star to rock bottom.”

“I’m a black woman in America. Of course,” she replied when asked by a reporter if she had been treated unfairly.

But she called being Chicago’s mayor “the honor of a lifetime.”

“Regardless of tonight’s outcome, we fought the right fights and we put this city on a better path,” Lightfoot said, as she urged her fellow mayors around the US not to fear being bold.

Amid heavy criticism for the crime wave, homelessness and other troubles plaguing the city, the mayor had also injected race in the run-up to the election.

I'd like to solve the puzzle Pat,

By the same people who voted her out?

Lori Lightfoot Effectively Calls Chicago Residents Racist, Sexist After Election Loss
By Brandon Morse | 11:30 AM on March 01, 2023

As RedState reported on Tuesday, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot lost her reelection, and not by a little. According to the polls, she was something of an afterthought, falling well behind Paul Vallas and runner-up Brandon Johnson who got 33.77 and 20.29 percent of the vote respectively.

Lightfoot limped into third with 17 percent of the vote.

Naturally, like any good radical leftist, Lightfoot took no personal responsibility for her loss, choosing to blame it instead on others. In this case, the entire city of Chicago is guilty of being sexist and racist as reported by the New York Post:

    “I’m a black woman in America. Of course,” she replied when asked by a reporter if she had been treated unfairly.

    …

    “I am a black woman — let’s not forget,” Lightfoot, 60, told the New Yorker in a piece that ran Saturday. “Certain folks, frankly, don’t support us in leadership roles.

I read the playbook.  If you suck at your job you are not much of a leader, unless you are black and suck at your job.

Doesn't seem to get the irony of telling the people that voted her in that they can never vote her out because she's black and a woman.
The Republic is lost.
