NAME-CALLING, TOXICITY, AND MALICIOUS NEGLECT: Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot's Destructive Conduct Comes Back to Haunt Her Thanks to FOIA Request

Good morning, Chicago.

The Tribune obtained more than 2 1/2 years of Lightfoot’s text messages with aldermen and other high-ranking political leaders through a series of Freedom of Information Act requests — which members of her staff failed to comply with until the state attorney general admonished them and the Tribune threatened a lawsuit.

Earlier this month, the Tribune published a trove of text messages revealing the extent to which the mayor — who campaigned as a reformer aiming to unite the city — has sometimes resorted to name-calling and shaming of her perceived enemies as she governs the city.


Text messages with the state’s most powerful political leaders show the same combativeness that’s been a hallmark of her dealings with the City Council. In particular, Lightfoot has repeatedly clashed with Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker and Senate President Don Harmon, records show.

This is an ABC report about Lightfoot's irresponsible, hyper-defensive, and (frankly) malicious response to valid questions about very real threats in her city. Keep in mind this is just one instance of the toxic manner this mayor deflects all criticism against her actions (or lack thereof) and her office.

This mayor seems to put far more energy into attacking critics than she ever has in actually addressing the problems she is being criticized for.

The more time that goes by, the more it becomes apparent that Lightfoot's handling of the disaster that Chicago is becoming known for is not actually neglect, but deliberate sabotage.
