A reporter who was once punitively punished by outgoing Chicago Gov. Lori Lightfoot was given the opportunity to confront the disgraced Democrat during one of her final Chicago City Council meetings.

“You did the one thing I thought could never happen,” said reporter William J. Kelly. “As somebody who was born and raised on the south side of Chicago, I never thought in my life that I would ever see the city of Chicago brought down so low.”

The reporter, who also noted that Lightfoot “shut down the businesses,” had his media credentials stripped by Lightfoot in 2022, after Media Right News reports he dared to ask “hard-hitting questions about the crime in Chicago.”

He then thundered, “I hope that after today’s city council meeting, you will pack your suitcase and get the hell out of my city.”

Kelly apparently only learned he would be one of only five city residents allowed to speak to Lightfoot moments before the event, describing it as the “luck of the Irish” while speaking to Fox News.

“I applied for the public comment section right before the meeting,” said Kelly, “it’s a lottery.” “Just the luck of the Irish, St. Patrick’s Day, I was one of the five!”

The reporter sued Lightfoot last year after his press credentials were revoked following hard questions. Lightfoot claimed that Kelly bumped into one of her security guards, making him a threat and, thus, unable to be accredited as a member of the media.

The exchange between Kelly and Lightfoot that preceded the revocation of his media credentials received high media attention last year, and Kelly believes his reporting hurt Lightfoot’s failed reelection campaign.

In that clip, Kelly fumed at Lightfoot, “How can you even possibly consider running for reelection… after all the harm you’ve caused?”

    What most of you do not know is a few days ago, Jag arrested Him at a coffee restaurant with his wife. She/he put up a struggle and his pants came down revealing Lori Lightfoot is a man. He was arrested for treason. His wife was arrested for being an accomplice to the crimes he committed. Both are at Gitmo. Yay!
