Black, Gay Woman Elected Chicago Mayor

On Tuesday, former Assistant US Attorney Lori Lightfoot was elected as the first African-American woman to be mayor of Chicago.

With many of the mayoral candidates promising they would fire current Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson after taking office, Lightfoot claims such a move might do more harm than good.

Lightfoot describes herself as "an out and proud black lesbian." When she is sworn in, she will be the first mayor in the Windy City who identifies as a lesbian.
