Chicago Democrat Machine Tries to Destroy Candidate with Homophobic Flyers

The Chicago Democrat machine may just be on the verge of destruction and is so scared of Chicago’s leading candidate for mayor they tried the dirty trick of passing homophobic flyers around to hurt her candidacy.

The coming Chicago mayoral election is a doosie this year. Currently, outsider candidate Lori Lightfoot is leading establishment representative Toni Preckwinkle. Both are African American women.

The funny last names aside, the election is already historic because which ever of the two win the election, it will mark the first time the Windy City will have a black, female mayor.

But in Lightfoot’s case, it is further complicated by the fact that she is also openly gay.

So, lots of firsts there… none of which are particularly important as far as the fate of the city goes because whichever left-winger wins it will not likely be good for the city.

Anyway, Preckwinkle is already the president of Cook County, the county in which Chicago is located. But she is also the traditional Democrat establishment candidate.

But Preckwinkle has been in second place since day one and looks likely to lose next month. And as each week passes, more and more previous candidates and city officials announce they are backing Lightfoot.

These former establishment folks are sensing that Lightfoot has the momentum and they are jumping the sinking Preckwinkle ship to side with a winner.

So, Preckwinkle has struck out at Lightfoot with a Democrat dirty trick.

One problem Lightfoot has is that the city’s religious groups are a bit squeamish because she is gay. Preckwinkle’s surrogates tried to exploit that weakness by sending out homophobic flyers attacking Lightfoot.

According to Chicago’s WGN:

According to the Chicago Tribune, the anti-gay flyers had a photo of Lightfoot and her wife with their arms around each other. The flyers said, “The Feminist and Gay Movement Have Come Full Circle!” The flyers also said Lightfoot was “pro law enforcement” and said, “All contracts, jobs, and employment newly assigned exclusively to gay people!”

“Any attempts by anyone to propagate hate, we have to stand together as a city and denounce it unequivocally because hate can have no place in our city,” Lightfoot said.

Well, isn’t that just like the Democrats?

Use any lie, any dirty trick, knock any of the groups they claim to support… anything to win.

Democrats are liars, folks.

In any case, it looks like the old time Chicago Democrat machine is about to crack.
