Portland official who called 911 on Lyft driver blames fear of ‘white supremacists’


The Portland city commissioner, criticized after phoning 911 with concerns during a Lyft ride despite pushing to “defund” Portland police, attributes her actions to fear of “white supremacists.” Jo Ann Hardesty and Lyft driver Richmond Frost quarreled Nov. 1 when Hardesty ordered an Uber from a casino resort and the two had trouble locating each other. Hardesty then complained about the driver’s windows being down, which is in line with Lyft’s policies to prevent the spread of COVID-19, according to KATU News.
