Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Loses Reelection Bid
 
JORDAN DIXON-HAMILTON28 Feb 20231,525
 
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) on Tuesday failed to secure enough votes to advance to the runoff on Tuesday, losing her bid for a second term in office, according to an Associated Press projection.

Lightfoot becomes the first Chicago mayor to lose a bid for reelection in 40 years, when former mayor Jane Byrne was ousted in 1983.


Lightfoot’s loss sets up former Chicago Public Schools CEO Paul Vallas (D) and Cook County Commissioner Brandon Johnson (D) for a head to head faceoff in the runoff election on April 4.

And probably somebody more anti-cop, pro crime than Lightfoot
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

Very true. Her replacement will be another foolish, idiotic, Liberal Democrat. However, I do not think it is possible for anyone to be a worse mayor or person than she is.

It is her hubris and her utter arrogance that brought her down. She thought that being Black/Lesbian/far Left Liberal, in a Democrat city meant that she can do anything, anything at all, and keep her job. She thought she is untouchable. She was wrong.

That dancing in the street thing she did a few days ago was a giant F**k You! to the people of Chicago. She was saying, "You will never get me out of office, no matter what." I do what I want, when I want, and nobody can do a damn thing about it.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

For those who can, get back to the land. Homesteading is a revolutionary act of resistance.

There will be a runoff election between the CPD-endorsed Paul Vallas and some Marxist named Brandon Johnson. Looks like Chicago is screwed either way, but perhaps not as badly as under Lightfoot's reign.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
