Massive taxes never end in Chicago. Much of the revenue is from the Chicago O’Hare Airport and the Department of Water Management. Mayor Lori Lightfoot defends these moneymakers with a billion-dollar assortment of top lawyers and law firms. Many lawsuits’ initial settlement offers were far less than the legal fees and costs to defend. You think the Law Department could figure out the difference between a legitimate lawsuit from a scam. The Law Department should attempt to remedy the injured and make whole.
Not with Mayor Lori Lightfoot. Mayor Lori Lightfoot has failed to use City of Chicago Legal counsel. Many talented City Lawyers have been fired and harassed. In the Chicago Human Resources Board, private law firms have replaced City Lawyers. The cost is staggering. Mayor Lightfoot is getting campaign contributions from these firms. Many law firms have recently received phone calls to “help Mayor Lightfoot.” Campaign contributions are called “Pay to Play.”
Mayor Lightfoot and her gang of thugs should stop shaking down city vendors. As one lawyer said quite elegantly, “you are not the only person that checks campaign contribution sites and puts two and two together. You can obtain millions in business for a relatively small contribution. Many articles lately have exposed this practice. Chicago taxpayers are so broke they do not have the time to look at these critical issues.
