Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot loses reelection bid by wide margin but voters pick another Dem who will no doubt follow her failed pro-crime policies
By JD Heyes // Mar 01, 2023

There is much truth to the old saying, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink." That legendary American axiom certainly applies to a majority of voters in our biggest cities, and that includes Chicago.

Under Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot, parts of the city began to resemble war zones, as her anti-police and pro-crime policies turned neighborhoods into crime-filled shooting galleries.

On Tuesday, voters appeared to say that they've had enough, but there's more to the story than that.

That said, it was obvious that she was not popular among many Chicagoans, and the majority did not want her to continue in office due to her poor track record. As reported by 100 Percent Fed Up:

Mayoral candidates needed to get over 50% of the vote to win. Anything less than 50% would cause a runoff election to take place. Mayoral candidate Paul Vallas, a former Chicago Public Schools CEO, received 35% of the vote, and Cook County Commissioner Brandon Johnson came in second place with 20% of the vote. The incumbent mayor, Lori Lightfoot, only managed to get a dismal 16.5% vote and, as a result, was knocked out of the runoff election for the office of Chicago Mayor. Paul Vallas and Brandon Johnson will appear on the ballot in the run-off election on April 4th.

So, what's the problem? Well, every other candidate running against Lightfoot was also a Democrat, so essentially, once again, Chicago voters cast ballots for the same destructive policies because Democrats today are all the same: They hate cops/law and order; love criminals (because they want to create chaos in the streets); adore high taxes; love tyrannical policies; shun guns; and are all-in on the collapse of our economy by getting rid of fossil fuels.

Now that she's been ousted, what does Lightfoot blame? Racism, of course. Reporters pressed her on whether she believed she was treated unfairly during the campaign process, Fox News noted.

"I’m a Black woman in America. Of course," she responded, according to reports.

"Regardless of tonight’s outcome, we fought the right fights and we put this city on a better path," Lightfoot said with a straight face Tuesday night, claiming that serving as Chicago's mayor was "the honor of a lifetime."

Lightfoot's remarks on election night were similar to statements she had made during an interview with the New Yorker over the preceding weekend.

"I am a black woman," she told the magazine. "Let's not forget: certain folks, frankly, don’t support us in leadership roles."

Never mind that as a black lesbian woman, she regularly criticizes white heterosexuals and that's not considered 'racism' or 'bigotry' by our garbage left-wing media.

Fox News reported further:

Lightfoot's critics argue her defeat came due to skyrocketing crime, homelessness and her poor relationship with law enforcement. In 2021, homicides in Chicago rose to their highest numbers in 25 years, outpacing other crime-ridden cities like New York City and Los Angeles. 

Lightfoot's critics stormed onto Twitter to celebrate her loss Tuesday evening.

"There is hope for my home city yet," wrote Jonathan Turley, a criminal defense attorney, Georgetown law school professor, and Fox News contributor. "Lori Lightfoot is out. The greatest potential improvement for the city since 1900 when the direction of the Chicago river was reversed."

Stephen L. Miller, contributing editor at The Spectator, wrote, "Perhaps Lori Lightfoot would have won if thousands of her voters had not been shot."

Gianno Caldwell, a Fox News political analyst whose brother was gunned down in Chicago last summer, noted on social media that the Lori Lightfoot "experiment" is "officially over. Thank you, CHICAGO."

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., wrote, "Lori Lightfoot. Crime doesn't pay."
