Thug Mayor W/Private DJ Shuts Down Businesses That Wont Donate To Her

I recently wrote a column about a mayor that was upset when the governor of his state described two teens that had shot twenty-three people, killing one, as thugs. In that column, the mayor who is black, was trying to suggest that the term thug was a racial stereotype and was only used to describe blacks. I refuted that and wrote that the very idea was totally ridiculous. Thugs come in every shape, size and color and has never been limited to a certain racial group. That said, it doesn’t exclude any racial groups either. You also don’t have to kill or shoot someone to be a thug. You can exhibit the traits through a variety of ways. Intimidation of any type can properly label you as a thug.

Now, meet the thug mayor of Dolton, Illinois, Tiffany Henyard. For the record, Henyard is black, but she is not considered a thug because of her race. She is a thug because of her actions and her attitude.

If there was ever a case of power going to a person’s head, it’s Henyard. From her extravagant manner of dress and heavy makeup that some have described as looking like a “gangsta,” or a drug kingpin, to her unbridled spending, she is an out-of-control thug.

Having been elected in 2021, it didn’t take long to grow tired of her. As noted by Ballotpedia, Henyard, a Democrat, was subjected to a recall in 2022. Even though the vote was in favor of recalling her, the results, which would have removed her, were ruled invalid.

Her abuse of power is disgusting. According to the New York Post.

“People look at politics like a joke, it’s like a mockery right now because of all this stuff,” Village of Dolton Trustee Kiana Belcher told The Post. “She comes to board meetings dressed like Nino Brown.”

During one meeting, Henyard, 40, dressed in the ensemble, signaled for a DJ to blare Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” as she sashayed around the room to underline a point, she was making sources said.

 According to the Chicago Tribune. Henyard committed to the character, carrying a small stuffed dog to evoke a scene from the 1991 crime classic, where Nino menaces and batters an underling.

As nauseating as all of this is, she also takes her thuggery to the streets. Lawrence Gardner, 57, said Henyard forced his business to close when he would not duplicate an initial $3,500 contribution to her campaign fund.

Bottom of Form

“I made the payment, then every year she started coming and required the same thing, and we had a problem about that.”

Gardner said fake claims of selling alcohol and revocation of his business license followed his refusal to pay out more cash.

“What is she, Nino Brown? Anything she wants done; she gets them to harass you. She likes nobody. If you are not doing what she says, if you are not doing how she’s saying to do it, you are a problem. She don’t like them.”

The former Dolton Mayor Riley Rogers, said it’s not just the attitude, but the spending that’s a concern. The village is estimated to be $6 million in debt.

Rogers spoke about they way he feels about this, saying:

“Some people take it as being glamorous by having a bunch of police officers around you and being escorted and being driven around. I never had a security detail as mayor. I tried to stay away from the money. It’s not your money so you can’t use it like it’s your piggy bank.”

Sherry Britton, a resident of the village, states that she is sorry she ever voted for Henyard.

“It was a vote that I regret,” she said. “Please put that in there! It was a vote that I regret deeply. When she got into office, she just shut everyone out and she went in the opposite direction. She became this tyrant and dictator.”

“It seems like her aspirations and goals are for her to be a reality star. She didn’t wear all that make-up. She just now thinks she’s this reality star. I don’t know this for sure, but they say she is filming a reality show, because the cameras are always with her.”

Earlier this month, a bank said the village was so far behind on its payments it threatened to repossess all 13 village vehicles, including its police cars, according to WGN-TV. Trustees said they had approved the payment, but it was not made until the bank threatened.

Henyard also thinks that being black can be used to shame other blacks into agreeing with her, never hesitating to chastise her critics on the grounds of race. At a February 5th meeting she ranted:

“You all should be ashamed of yourselves because you all are black. You all are black! And you all sitting up here beating and attacking a black woman that’s in power.”

The New York Post interviewed one resident that gave a very accurate description of the situation with Henyard as mayor.

“It’s like a dictator. There is no call for it. I’ve never seen a town that’s more screwed up under her, and I’ve seen 20 years of this malarkey. She’s – power-hungry. She doesn’t care how much she bleeds an area out of resources. It’s her life and that’s it.”

Henyard is a power-hungry thug, that is using this town for her own benefit. She needs to be recalled and the judge that didn’t allow it in 2022 needs to be disbarred.

As far as Dolton is concerned, wake up and stop being naïve. More directly, stop voting lying, liberal, Democrats into office. They’re wolves in sheep’s clothing, so stop beating your head against the wall because it feels good when you stop.
