Lori Lightfoot Resigning?

Twitter is full of rumors that Lori Lightfoot is going to resign as mayor of Chicago tomorrow. Apparently, it’s not going to be because of the Austin Toledo shooting or the crime wave that is currently destroying one of America’s great cities. Instead, it’s because of a scandal involving an extramarital affair. That’s the rumor, anyway.

I’ll believe it when I see it. Do politicians even resign anymore? It seems like they just ride it out. Andrew Cuomo is still in office. Matt Gaetz is still in office. Ralph Northam is still in office. Donald Trump never resigned. Bill Clinton is still treated like an elder statesman. Joe Biden’s support actually grew after he was accused of assaulting Tara Reade. Al Franken resigned and now spends all of his time talking about how he wishes he hadn’t. Resigning hasn’t been cool since 2018.

If I was betting money, I would put it all on Lori Lightfoot not going anywhere.
