Lori Lightfoot, the extreme leftist mayor of beleaguered Chicago, is referred to as “Lori Leadfoot” since she was caught speeding.
Dan Eberhardt, a political pundit, wrote on Twitter, “Just when you think Lori Lightfoot couldn’t be an even bigger hypocrite if she tried, she finds a way to one-up herself,”
Some of the clearest indications that you live in an authoritarian society are when elites set laws for others that they, their friends, and colleagues do not follow and for which there are no penalties.
“On Tuesday, Mayor Lori Lightfoot was accused of ‘do as I say, not as I do’ hypocrisy in the wake of news that SUVs used to transport the mayor about the city had gotten more unpaid fines for speeding and running red lights,” The Chicago Suntimes claimed, in response to the news, that Lightfoot doesn’t care what’s going on in her vehicle, despite the fact that she is imposing rules on the constituents.
She is permitted to speed, when others are not.
“Lori Leadfoot! The Daily Mail said that Lightfoot and her administration were lambasted after it was found that her official SUVs racked up at least eight traffic penalties – NONE of which were paid – for speeding and running red lights, with film catching their reckless driving.
Furthermore, she is hypocritical because one of her major platform problems is speeding.
Lightfoot’s city SUVs have accumulated unpaid red light and speed camera charges. Some fines were issued in school zones with children present, according to the data. Due to nonpayment, a seizure order on one of her SUVs has been issued.
“Lori Lightfoot, mayor of Chicago, has implemented a crackdown on speeding and last year reduced a buffer zone around schools from 10mph to 6mph, and it has come to light that her own motorcade has been involved in at least eight incidents since February 2020, accumulating $658 in unpaid fines,” a news source reported.
The motorcade of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has been cited for repeated speeding and traffic violations, despite the mayor’s advocacy for tougher penalties for speeding cars.
The Daily Mail revealed that Lightfoot’s SUVs have been engaged in at least eight accidents since February 2020, and have received three speed camera penalties, two warnings, and a red light penalty since May 2021.

Lightfoot infuriated Chicago residents over the use of the cameras, being accused of making money.
The speed limits in the school zones were ten mph, but Lightfoot last year ordered that speed limits be reduced to 6mph, arguing that it would make roads safer and reduce deaths.
‘No one likes speed cameras. I get it,’ she said last month.
‘But this is life or death that we’re talking about here, and we’ve got to step up as a city and address this.’ Lightfoot has also repeatedly highlighted the threat to children from speeding vehicles near schools. CONTINUE READING…
