Lori Lightfoot speaks

CHICAGO (TND) — Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has proposed a solution to end rampant crime in her city: Stop using cash.

Lightfoot suggested those afraid of being mugged opt to use digital forms of payments instead.

During a debate for Lightfoot’s upcoming race to regain control of her seat, the topic of safety concerns, particularly those of street vendors, came up.

We have been in Little Village working with street vendors, understanding what the nature of the crime is, making sure we're doing things in concert with them to help them make sure that their money is secure, not use money if at all possible, using other forms of transactions to take care of themselves,” Lightfoot insisted, when asked what solutions she was implementing to reduce the number of muggings in Chicago.
