Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot – who appears to have violated both local and state mask mandates at the WNBA finals yesterday – said that the city’s Fraternal Order of Police is attempting to “induce an insurrection” using misinformation to oppose vaccine mandates.
“We believe that the FOP leadership is trying to foment an illegal workstop, and a strike – plain and simple… The contract is clear and has been known for a long time. The police union is not authorized to strike.”
“What we’ve seen from the FOP, in particular the leadership, is a lot of misinformation. A lot of half-truths and frankly flat-out lies, in order to induce an insurrection.”
