Chicago Mayor Loses Reelection Bid; Take A Wild Guess What She Blames For Her Loss…

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has lost her bid for reelection on Tuesday evening, which has left conservatives in the area and around the country celebrating, as the notoriously soft on crime Democrat will no longer be able to continue favoring criminals in one of the most violent cities in the nation.

Lightfoot, according to the Daily Mail, managed to only scrape up a total of 17 percent of the vote in the race for the mayoral seat, which has now forced a runoff between Paul Vallas, a former schools CEO, and Brandon Johnson, a Cook County commissioner, set for April 4.

This made Lightfoot the first elected Chicago mayor to lose a reelection bid since 1983, when Jane Byrne, the city’s first female mayor, lost her Democratic primary. Lightfoot, the first black woman and first openly gay person to lead the city, won her first term in 2019 after promising to end decades of corruption and backroom dealing at City Hall,” the Daily Mail report said.

However, Lightfoot’s opponents laid the blame for the increase in crime occurring in cities all over America squarely on her shoulders and slammed her for being so divisive.

Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene posted a tweet about Lightfoot’s loss saying, “Lori Lightfoot. Crime doesn’t pay.”

Many others jumped on the social media platform to say they hope that peace can be restored to the Windy City now that Lightfoot has been removed from her position.

Former Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones posted, “Chicago’s Mayor Lori Lightfoot, just got the FOOT! Other Democrat mayors with run-away crime in your cities, take note. Even liberals are tired of being unsafe.”

Jonathan Turley, a criminal defense attorney who also serves as a contributor on Fox News, went on to say, “There is hope for my home city yet. Lori Lightfoot is out. The greatest potential improvement for the city since 1900 when the direction of the Chicago river was reversed.”

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said, “Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago coming in third in her bid for a second term is an encouraging sign that things can get bad enough for citizens to defeat the machines. Maybe Baltimore City is next.”

“The bad news for Lori Lightfoot is she’s no longer Mayor of Chicago. The good news is she can go spend time someplace safer, like Ukraine,” Jimmy Failla with Fox News remarked.

A resident of Chicago took to Facebook to deliver a real scorcher to Lightfoot’s ego by saying, “Glad the garbage is out, Chicago needs a change, I just hope for a city where we can feel safe.”

Another individual wrote, “The good people of Chicago, and these other fine American cities deserve better. She’s to soft on crime, and drove businesses and residents out. She didn’t get along with police, teachers unions, and citizens, and businesses.”

Back in 2021, Phil Ponce of WTTW asked Lightfoot, “In recent months, there have been questions raised about your temperament and your reaction to criticism – a (Chicago) Tribune editorial used the term irascible – how much of this do you think might have to do with the fact that you’re a woman and specifically a black woman?”

Lightfoot responded by saying, “99 percent of it.”

When she was asked to explain her answer she said, “Look at my predecessors. Did people say that Rich Daly held tea sessions with people that he didn’t disagree on? Ron Emmanuel was a polite guy who was a uniter?”

“No. Woman and people of color are always held to a different standard. I understand that. I’ve known that my whole life,” she added.

That’s right, folks.

It wasn’t her abysmal handling of the massive crime in Chicago that made her unpopular. It’s because of her skin color. She went there, folks. The race card. Good grief.
