Good-Bye, Mayor Frogface! Lightfoot Places Third in Chicago Reelection Bid

Posted on | March 1, 2023 | 1 Comment

The pioneering Amphibian-American got less than 20% of the vote in her effort to win another four years in office to wreck Chicago:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot lost her bid for re-election Tuesday, ending her historic run as the city’s first Black woman and first openly gay person to serve in the position.
Lightfoot, a Democrat, failed to get enough votes in the nine-person race to move on to an April 4 runoff election, according to projections by The Associated Press.
Paul Vallas, a former CEO of Chicago schools, will face Brandon Johnson, a Cook County commissioner endorsed by the Chicago Teachers Union.
Ideologically, the choice between Vallas and Johnson is stark. Vallas ran as a moderate law-and-order candidate, while Johnson ran on an unabashedly progressive agenda.
But Chicagoans sent a message that they wanted change, rejecting both an incumbent mayor and a sitting congressman. Lightfoot is the first incumbent elected Chicago mayor to lose re-election since 1983, when Jane Byrne, the city’s first female mayor, lost her primary.
Lightfoot conceded defeat Tuesday night at her party in downtown Chicago, saying, “Obviously we didn’t win the election today, but I stand here with my head held high.”

Frogs everywhere — to say nothing of toads, newts and salamanders — are still proud of Mayor Frogface, who inflicted the kind of vengeance on humans that amphibians have long craved, turning Chicago into a racially-divided hive of Fear and Loathing where 737 people were murdered last year and more than 3,600 were wounded by gunfire.

You may be surprised — but probably not very surprised — to discover what factors Lori Lightfoot blames for her historic defeat:

Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed racism and her gender for her landslide defeat in her re-election bid, as Chicagoans weary of the rising crime on 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 into the run-up to the election.
“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.”

Prior to being elected mayor in 2019, Lightfoot had never previously held elective office, but instead had been appointed to various government jobs — assistant U.S. attorney, president of the Chicago Police Board, etc. — by Democrats eager to fulfill their “diversity” quotas. And her upward ascent continued until finally, she found herself in a position where real-world consequences mattered. At which point, she became a victim of oppression, because all those RAAAAACISTS in Chicago voted against giving her another four years of letting their city go to ruin.

Eighty-three percent of Chicago voters are racists, apparently.
