Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was drowned out by boos during a union fundraiser over the weekend.

The Democratic mayor got an unwelcome reception at an annual fundraiser Sunday for Plumbers Union Local 130, the first union that endorsed her 2019 runoff election, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

One attendee, who asked to remain anonymous, told the outlet that Lightfoot was "booed off the stage" after speaking for less than a minute. 

"Almost deafening," the person said. "I was sitting at the table with a bunch of plumbers. They’re like, `We’ve never heard that before here.’ … Clearly, their membership is not with her. ... They were calling her names. It was bad."
