A Chicago reporter is taking Mayor Lori Lightfoot to court for her “attack on the First Amendment” after facing a slew of angry responses from the Democratic leader and losing his press credentials.

“I was asking the obvious questions, and she lost her temper,” journalist William Kelly said Wednesday on “Fox & Friends,” recalling a May exchange when she told him he was “full of crap.”

“Mayor Lightfoot is in re-election mode, and she doesn’t want any more embarrassing questions to go viral. So she revoked my media credential. … This is a very serious constitutional crisis in the city of Chicago.”


Kelly appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in September and said that Lightfoot and Chicago Police Department Superintendent David Brown lied about an altercation between him and security. Kelly said that the report was “false” and was used as their way to keep him out of press events.

Kelly said on Wednesday, “The problem is that [Brown] sat down and wrote me a letter telling me that he was revoking my media credentials when the police department is down 1,500 officers, we have an out-of-control crime epidemic, police suicide is at an all-time high. He’s taking time out of his day to write me a letter telling me that he’s revoking my media credential.

He added, “I think the priorities are completely out of whack.”

Next News Network tweeted the exchange from July and wrote, “Reporter William Kelly grilled Lori Lightfoot about millions in grants that he accused her of using to try ‘to buy Chicago votes.'”

Kelly tweeted in September, “Mayor Lightfoot has harmed Chicago – forever.”
