Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot presides over one of the most violent and poorly managed cities in the country.
Now it’s becoming clearer why Lori Lightfoot has such a mess on her hands.
Because Lori Lightfoot’s administration just got rocked by one disgusting Chicago sex scandal.
Lori Lightfoot has a mess on her hands after an Inspector General report exposed a stomach-wrenching public school sex crime epidemic in the Windy City.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has constantly been criticized for presiding over one of the most violent and poorly run cities in the country.
The Chicago Public School system is a big part of the problem.
Shocking number of sex crimes in Windy City schools, teachers implicated
The annual report from the Chicago Board of Education’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) found hundreds of instances of rape, sexual assault, and grooming.
The OIG’s Sexual Allegations Unit (SAU) opened an eye-opening 447 cases investigating teachers for misconduct.
The report read, “In its fourth year of operations, the OIG’s Sexual Allegations Unit has taken remarkable strides in the manner that it manages the large volume of complaints of adult-to-student sexual misconduct reported each school year.”
It’s quite alarming that there was such a “large volume of complaints” that had to be investigated.
The report continued that for 2022, the SAU “closed 300 more cases than the unit did in 2021, thanks in large measure to new procedures in the intake and assessment of complaints that were enacted late last year, the Board’s investment of resources in the unit and the collaboration with partner CPS departments, notably the Office of Student Protections.”
However going back to 2018, there are still a total of 349 cases pending.
The report detailed one case where a teacher begged the victim not to report the abuse, writing in a message, “Please no…we r talking about my entire life here……Please…I’m begging u…”
In a separate disturbing instance, the SAU claimed that a male teacher engaged in “intimate physical contact with students (including kisses, sexual hugs, and back-rubs), [and] openly solicited sexual acts (such as asking a student to recruit another student for a ‘threesome’).”
In a separate incident, an instructor messaged a student, “‘I’m ready to f*** right now … I’m not gonna be gentle either.’”
The Left have freaked out about conservatives using the word “groomer” to describe teachers who engage in sexual conversations with students outside the context of a parent-approved sex ed course or something similar.
That is textbook grooming, as outlined by the OIG report.
For example, the report discussed one case where the teacher discussed his sex life with a student through phones and social media private messages, as well as “other common grooming techniques.”
The OIG report chronicles hundreds of cases of misconduct in one school system among thousands.
The Left are giving bad teachers like these cover when they shoot down all concerns of grooming.
More and more parents are opting out of public schools.
It’s easy to see why.
