Lori Lightfoot Hired to Investigate ‘Worst Mayor in America’ Tiffany Henyard

Residents in Dolton, Illinois have voted to hire former Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot to investigate allegations of corruption in the village.

Taxpayers will be paying Lightfoot, a Democrat, $400 per hour as a “Special Investigator” to probe Dolton Mayor Tiffany Henyard.

The allegations against Henyard had led to her being dubbed the “worst mayor in America.”

However, the choice of “Special Investigator” has left many scratching their heads as Lightfoot was often labeled as the “worst mayor” during her single term in Chicago.

Lightfoot was voted out of office in disgrace after crime rates soared out of control in Chicago.

Starting Tuesday, Lightfoot is tasked with gathering information on Henyard’s alleged spending and finance mismanagement.

Henyard will also be investigated for “any state and federal violations.”

Ahead of Monday’s vote, Lightfoot said she understood the residents want to go in a different direction from Henyard.

She promised to “follow the facts where they lead.”

At the end of her investigation, Lightfoot will present a report on her findings to the Village of Dolton.

The findings in the report will determine what happens beyond that.

Trustees also re-voted on issues the Dolton mayor had previously vetoed and about paying vendors and invoices that the Village has not yet paid.

Monday’s vote was held off-site, at the Park District building since it wasn’t an official Village Board meeting.

It was also moved there to accommodate residents who wanted to attend.

The Village of Dolton’s monthly town hall meeting once again made headlines last week for fiery confrontations with the scandal-ridden mayor.

Henyard has been accused of misdeeds ranging from weaponizing police in retaliatory business raids to spending taxpayer money on luxuries like traveling to Las Vegas.

Last month, Henyard reportedly vetoed the board’s resolution to probe her spending over purported misuse of funds.

The FBI has reportedly already begun to investigate Henyard for purportedly misusing her local police force.

However, the board’s resolution had called for the FBI further to investigate her spending of the town’s money.
