Horace Cooper: Politicians Must Choose — Public Servant or Instagram Model? They Can’t Be Both.

On tonight’s episode of “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel, Project 21 Chairman Horace Cooper and host Sean Hannity were incredulous that failed Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has been tapped to investigate Dolton (IL) Mayor Tiffany Henyard, who has been referred to as “The Worst Mayor in America.”

Horace told Sean:

It brings to mind the adage, “It takes one to know one.”

Apparently, if you’re going to find out who is the absolute worst mayor today, you have to pick from one of the worst mayors yesterday so that she knows what she’s looking for.

Now, in addition to the corruption that is alleged in this township, there is also the mismanagement, the danger that is occurring, because the mayor is allegedly redirecting law-enforcement authorities away from protecting people and property and toward trying to target folks who either don’t support her or haven’t donated to her.

We’re looking at really a sad and pathetic situation. The people in this village, in this township, deserve so much more. I don’t understand why the governor of Illinois hasn’t personally named an investigator to make sure that we find out about the corruption that’s going on and take this crown away from the worst mayor in America that we can see right now….

When we see this compensation — higher than almost all the governors in the country — and then we see the poverty that these people experience, again I ask for the governor to appoint a real investigator to find out what’s going on here. Lightfoot is not the answer.

Horace also said politicians have a choice to make:

Pick which one you want to be: a servant of the people or an Instagram model. You aren’t going to be able to do both.
