In an effort to be transparent and accessible to the public during the Covid-19 pandemic, for more than three months now I have been doing tri-weekly community updates on Facebook. Tonight, I would like to apologize for identifying individuals who presented letters to me at City Hall as I was answering a routine question during one of my updates earlier today. While this is public information, I did not intend to cause distress or harm to anyone. The post has been removed.
St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson doxxed protesters today live on air with full names and addresses. Apparently a group of protesters left their info with names/addresses regarding the city budget and it was used against them.— Jacqui 🦂🐍 (@MyHistrionics) June 26, 2020
We all know Lyda ran on more and bigger police. But even with that I am surprised she’d be so outright reckless as to doxx folx on a live stream. #WTFLyda— SKAllDay (@tzipidances) June 26, 2020
@CNN St Louis City Mayor, Lyda Krewson, read aloud in a since deleted Facebook live, the full names and ADRESSES of citizens who wrote in proposals on defunding the STLPD. Absokutely reckless. #DefundThePolice #StLouis #BLM— Chase Martinson (@martinson_chase) June 26, 2020
Lyda's gonna argue that those letters and petitions are public records and anyone could get them with a sunshine request, and she's right.— Mike (@HawksBearsCubs) June 26, 2020
Doesn't make reading the addresses on a broadcast any less shitty.
welp, lyda has lost her entire ass mind..— - (@trustyourbush) June 26, 2020
