De Lille says she will be coming for councilors who have tarnished her name.

In her final speech as mayor, she threatened to take legal action against those she accuses of a smear campaign against her.

De Lille is implicated in the Bowman forensic report.

She has been accused of maladministration and interfering in administrative business.
