[Ed. – Her followup email read ‘I will not chew gum in the office unless I bring enough for everyone.’ That message was repeated only 12 times.]
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has been slammed for sending a ‘deranged’ email to one of her female staffers berating her for failing to scheduled enough ‘office time’.
The condescending message was sent by Lightfoot to her then-scheduler Taylor Lewis on January 28, but was only obtained by the Chicago Tribune this week. The paper was investigating reports of high staff turnover at City Hall when they uncovered the ‘unhinged’ email.
The message included sentences which Lightfoot repeated more than a dozen times – apparently in order to really get her point across.
‘Since my prior requests are routinely ignored, I am now resorting to this: I need office time everyday! I need office time everyday! I need office time everyday!’ Lightfoot raged in the e-mail.
She repeated the same sentence a further 13 times, before writing: ‘Not just once a week or some days, but everyday!’
