Two Democrats who support police reforms are both CARJACKED just hours apart: Rep. Mary Scanlon is robbed at gunpoint in Philadelphia and Illinois Senator Kimberly Lightford and her husband are carjacked in Chicago
Democratic Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon, 62, was robbed at gunpoint in Philadelphia’s FDR Park on Wednesday afternoon 16 hours after Illinois State Senator Kimberly Lightford, 53, and her husband, Eric McKennie, were also carjacked on Tuesday night in a suburb 20 minutes outside of Chicago. Both women supported police reform policies last year following the Black Lives Matter movement, with both co-sponsoring a bill in their respective offices to allow mental health specialists to be dispatched as first responders instead of police officers. Lightford, the Illinois Black Caucus chairwoman, had also previously supported cutting police budgets in the state, with Chicago proposing to slash $59 million from their police department’s budget.
