Lori Lightfoot Now Blaming Victims Carrying Cash for Chicago Crime Surge

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who’s more than earned her master’s degree in stupid, has apparently completed her Ph.D. candidacy, earning her doctorate in dumb. Fresh out of bad excuses for wrecking one of America’s formerly great cities, Lightfoot now blames Chicagoans for the city’s stratospheric crime rate.

According to Townhall, “Chicago’s crime rate has skyrocketed under Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s wing, making the city one of the most dangerous places in the U.S. However, rather than rethinking her soft-on-crime policies, Lightfoot blames the crisis on everything else. Earlier this week, Lightfoot suggested street vendors stop using cash to stem Chicago’s crime problem.”

Former U.S. Rep. Nan Hayworth M.D. tweeted, “Yes, of course, make the VICTIMS change their behavior. If you want your civic leaders instead to do something about the criminals, you need to elect Republicans. Lori Lightfoot Claims Carrying Cash Is the Reason For Crime Epidemic.”

The worst mayor in America (usurping the crown from NYC’s former USA’s worst mayor Bill de Blasio) was debating mayoral challengers when she uttered the brilliant suggestion. 

Putting the responsibility for fighting violent crime on the city’s street vendors for daring to use U.S. currency, Lightfoot encouraged them to “Not use money, if at all possible, using other forms of transactions to carry themselves.”

It’s easy for her to say when “[o]ther forms of transactions…” would add costs to vendors all ready struggling in a depressed Democrat economy.    

Citizen Free Press tweeted, “Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s ‘concrete solution’ to solve crime in Chicago: ‘Make sure that their money is secure, not use [cash] if at all possible, use other forms of transactions to take care of themselves.’”

Opponent Ja’Mal Green, a community activist, “accused her of lying about the [crime] numbers….” Despite Chicago PD citing “spiking crime” numbers, Green challenged, “Chicago’s crime rate has skyrocketed under Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s wing, making the city one of the most dangerous places in the U.S. However, rather than rethinking her soft-on-crime policies, Lightfoot blames the crisis on everything else.”

Unsubstantiated rumors suggest Lightfoot titled her doctoral thesis: Dumb Solutions for Real Problems. How about making criminals responsible for their crimes?
