Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot allegedly called the owner of a high-end exotic car dealership an “idiot” during a heated meeting after the store was targeted in an armed smash-and-grab robbery, according to a report.
Lightfoot allegedly “got into a fight and walked out” of Gold Coast Exotic Motor Cars during a meeting with store owner Joe Perillo, according to sources who spoke to CWB Chicago.
The article goes on to state the following:
One of the sources told the outlet the mayor called Perillo an “idiot” as she left the showroom, though Perillo told Fox News he did not hear her call him that.
“I’m not aware that she called me an idiot… at least she did not say that to me,” Perillo told Fox News. “In her heart, I believe she is trying her best. That said, we are both passionate individuals and have different views of how to deal with theft. I can report that there was nothing I said that in any way was foolish! I simply wanted to know what her future plans were going forward!”
A mayor’s office spokesperson confirmed in a statement that Lightfoot met with Perillo, but did not provide details on the meeting.
According to the report, a day or two after the meeting, Perillo was visited by an inspector from the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection with a ticket book.
Lightfoot’s spokesperson denied that the inspector showed up at the dealership because of the sour meeting, citing a anonymous complaint on December 15 about a public health violation at the business.
“It was unrelated to the mayor’s meeting with Mr. Perillo,” the spokesperson said, according to CWB Chicago.
Perillo reportedly received five tickets. One ticket for failing to comply with the commissioner of health’s mask order, and another for failing to comply with BACP’s order to comply with the commissioner of health’s mask order. The third ticket was for “storing, receiving, possessing, selling nineteen bottles of liquor. One whiskey, champagnes, wine, etc.”
The fourth ticket cites two violations: “Failure to display an incidental consumption liquor license and failure to have a required liquor license,” the report notes.
The inspector reportedly issued the fifth ticket for “interfering with or obstructing the commissioner’s designee in the performance of duties.”
After armed men stole luxury watches from his car dealership last month, Joe Perillo publicly criticized the mayor’s handling of crime.
She paid him a visit, then left, reportedly calling him an “idiot.”
