Lightfoot Continues COVID Mandate Fines While Crime Takes Over City

CHICAGO – While murders and carjackings continue to ravage the city, failed Mayor Lori Lightfoot continues to waste resources issuing citations to businesses failing to comply with COVID-19 mandates.

Last week, “investigators” from Lightfoot’s Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection wasted time conducting 49 investigations to see if people were wearing masks and if there were signs stating that masks were required. 

Why does Lightfoot waste city resources to investigate these “high crimes” against the people?  For the simple reason that citing businesses fills city coffers with cash [Lightfoot’s pockets as well].  Apparently, Lightfoot believes investigating real crime isn’t profitable enough, yet perhaps high crime serves other motives.
