Portland Mayor, Ted Wheeler (D) says he will find a new place to live after his condo building in the Pearl District was the site of several demonstrations, including one on Monday when crowds demanded he resign and some people set fires and broke windows in the high-rise condo building.
According to OregonLive.com, “More than 200 people on Monday night marched to the Pearl District condominium tower where Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler lives to demand his resignation.
St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson (D) has temporarily relocated from her Central West End home, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on Wednesday after her neighborhood landed in the national spotlight when two neighbors emerged in June to point weapons at protesters, according to the Washington Post.
The Post noted that while many feel the riots across the nation have not been handled while, that Democrat mayors disagree with that sentiment and have rejected federal assistance to control the violence – which has included arson, looting and assaults and murder.
Chicago’s mayor, “Lori Lightfoot (D) has assigned police to control access to her street to keep protesters away, citing threats she has received. Police have locked down Lightfoot’s block using a local ordinance that bans even peaceful protests in residential neighborhoods.” However, Lightfoot has not prevented protesters from demonstrating in other areas.
The tweet below is representative of folks who feel that Democrat politicians do one thing for themselves while demanding their constituents follow “their rules.” Lightfoot stopping protests in her neighborhood and providing police protection to her residence while at the same time supporting cries to “defund the police” strike some as hypocritical.
Here’s a video produced by Blaze TV where they were told that they could not film in front of Lightfoot’s Chicago home.
