Mayor Lori Lightfoot and wife (Center. Head of Security Detail far left)
Sadlowski-Garza wept as she told Lightfoot new businesses had been destroyed, while other shops were being protected by owners with shotguns.
“This is a massive, massive problem,” Lightfoot said. “People are just f—–g lawless right now.”
Ald. Raymond Lopez (15th Ward) demanded that Lightfoot develop a plan to stabilize Chicago’s neighborhoods for five days, calling his Southwest Side ward “a virtual war zone” where gang members armed with AK-47’s were threatening to shoot black people.
The call came to a screeching halt when Lightfoot declined to address the substance of Lopez’s remarks, and Lopez demanded that she respond.
Lightfoot told Lopez he was “100% full of s–t.”
“Well, f–k you then,” Lopez responded.
“I understand you want to preen,” Lightfoot told Lopez.
As aldermen objected, Lopez continued to speak.
“Mayor you need to check your f—–g attitude,” Lopez said.
That profane exchange was first reported by the Sun-Times.
Later in the call, Lightfoot told Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25th Ward) she spent a significant amount of time on Sunday morning dealing with a group of protesters outside her Logan Square home.
“Following your lead, alderman,” Lightfoot said, moving on to the next question without addressing Sigcho-Lopez’s comments.
Here’s one tiny part of the audio of the Chicago City Council (the whole 50-minute tape was erased by media cowards). Listen quick before Twitter wipes it. “I’ve got gangbangers walking around with AK-47s right now…” #Democrats https://t.co/YyYGcWIjbM
