Chicago reporter William J. Kelly sent Mayor Lori Lightfoot a cease-and-desist letter Monday after she barred him from a recent City Hall press conference on crime. Kelly's questions to Lightfoot on violent crime have regularly gone viral on social media and news websites with millions of views.
Kelly says that while D.C. politicians hold hearings into January 6th, they've ignored the impact of the death and destruction of the George Floyd riots on America's cities. "The Washington elite looked the other way while cities like Chicago, Portland, Los Angeles and New York burned," Kelly says. "When asked, Democrat leaders like Mayor Lori Lightfoot refuse to answer why the perpetrators of these crimes haven't been brought to justice. The people deserve answers."
Public hearings are planned for other major cities impacted by the George Floyd riots beginning on August 6th.
