Lightfoot's Defeat: How Crime Doesn't Pay

The day after Chicago's weak-on-crime Mayor Lori Lightfoot was rejected by 83% of the voters who elected her four years ago, TBOR Action President John Pudner was interviewed about President Joe Biden's shocking planning to follow Lightfoot's lead in DC. With one stroke of the pen, Biden could remove all minimum sentences in DC except in cases of first-degree murder, allowing defense attorneys to hope for one sympathetic juror to get as light a sentence as possible for their violent criminal clients.

Why would the President of the United States be able to do what only Lightfoot and Soros-funded prosecutors support? In this interview, President Pudner explains how the DC City Council enacted this ordinance, which was vetoed even by the liberal DC Mayor, overrode that veto, and has now forced the hand of Congress, which has 60 days to "disallow" any new local law. However, Biden plans to use his first veto to throw out the "disallow" vote by Congress to, in turn, enact the bill and throw out minimum sentences in the nation's capital.

Tuesday's election in Chicago should give him pause about making Democrats defend this action. Paul Vallas doubled Lightfoot's votes to come in first place, as he ran on a tough-on-crime message, a complete 180 from Lightfoot's tenure. At his victory party, Vallas spoke on why this is such an important issue for not just Chicago, but for the whole of our Republic:

“Public safety is the fundamental right of every American. It is a civil right, and it is the principal responsibility of government. We will have a safe Chicago. We will make Chicago the safest city in America. I will also have zero tolerance when it comes to violating the law or violating the Constitution.” - Paul Vallas, Candidate for Mayor of Chicago
