I didn't think I was going to need to do this but...... Y'all, we need to talk about Lori Lightfoot. She has spent the last several months pretending she was the most progressive candidate for mayor and just picked up an Sun-Times endorsement but: LIGHTFOOT IS NOT A PROGRESSIVE

This was before this current wave of "progressive prosecutors" (which is bullshit but we'll save that for another day), meaning she used to send people to prison, which is.....SUPER PROGRESSIVE. 🧐

Lightfoot once lied in court to wrongfully deport someone. Lars Erik Lindstrom, was deported because Lightfoot, acting as assistant U.S. Attorney, deliberately misled a judge. She was reprimanded for misconduct by a federal court court of appeals for this.

With issues like Chicago's status as sanctuary city & the use of the Gang Database being central to this election, how can anyone with a call Lightfoot a progressive with a straight face when she was willing to lie in court to get someone deported?

Lightfoot has spent 20 years overseeing police reform in Chicago, the current state of CPD is a testament to her failures.

Lightfoot was tasked to be the Chief Administrator of the Office of Police Standards (OPS) by Richard Daley. OPS was so plagued with corruption that the city had to rebrand it as IPRA in 2007. This was one of several positions Lightfoot held in Daley’s corrupt administration.

"A 2007 Tribune investigation of more than 200 police shooting cases covering the previous decade concluded that cursory Police Department investigations of officer shootings created a separate standard of justice for those officers." This included Lightfoot's time at OPS.

In 2009, Lori Lightfoot helped get Chicago police Officer Paul Powers off in a high-profile case involving four men who said they were beaten by Powers and other off-duty officers in a 2006 incident caught on security video at the Jefferson Tap in the Loop.

In 2013, Lightfoot defended CPD in a lawsuit filed by the family of Christina Eilman, she was arrested at Midway during a mental health crisis. Christina was released without assistance several miles away, abducted & sexually assaulted before plummeting from a 7th-floor window.

Rahm Emanuel hired Lori Lightfoot to defend the city from the families lawsuit. In 2013, the city of Chicago settled the lawsuit with a $22.5 million settlement, the largest Chicago has ever paid to an individual.

In 2015, IPRA recommended that Chicago Police Officer Dante Servin be fired for murdering Rekia Boyd. Servin shot 22 year old Rekia Boyd in the head while off duty. Lori Lightfoot and the Police Board did nothing about Servin and he was allowed to resign and keep his pension.

In 2016, Lightfoot chastised the families of Ronald Johnson, Rekia & Bettie Jones at a Police Board hearing because of the language that they used, she even threatened to have them physically removed from the meeting.

These people had their loved one’s killed in cold blood by CPD and Lori Lightfoot, this so called “police reformer”, couldn’t even empathize with their pain. Super "progressive". 🧐
