Watchdog group Judicial Watch is suing Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on behalf of the Daily Caller News Foundation over her controversial policy of only taking interviews from non-white black and brown reporters.
Per Fox News “the lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, alleges Lightfoot violated reporter Thomas Catenacci’s equal protection rights under the Fourteenth Amendment when she didn’t respond to multiple requests for interviews, as well as his First Amendment rights.”
Thomas Catenacci’s said in a statement “preventing journalists from doing our jobs in such a blatantly discriminatory way is wrong and does a disservice to our readers who come from all backgrounds.”
“Every journalist and every person who consumes the news should be concerned by Mayor Lightfoot’s actions. This affects everyone. I look forward to holding the mayor accountable,” he added.
Last week, Democrat Tulsi Gabbard slammed Lori Lightfoot over her policy.
Gabbard tweeted “Mayor Lightfoot’s blatant anti-white racism is abhorrent. I call upon President Biden, Kamala Harris, and other leaders of our county—of all races—to join me in calling for Mayor Lightfoot’s resignation.”
“Our leaders must condemn all racism, including anti-white,” she added.
