Shortly after the grand “hoaxster”, Jussie Smollett, faked a racially-based hate crime, radical Chicago State’s Attorney Kim Foxx was being contacted to intervene on the well-known actors’ behalf.
As with other George Soros-funded judicial candidates, Foxx campaigned promoting a radical form of “criminal justice reform,” including no bail policies for almost every defendant and reduced sentencing. As an SJW who won the election in 2015, her office in order to reward BLM anarchists adopted a “presumption of dismissal” for certain low-level charges.
In the Jussie Smollett case, Foxx actually dropped all the charges against the actor, despite other prosecutors in her office claiming they had a “slam dunk” of a case. Former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called it a “whitewashing of justice.”
Foxx had abused the privileges of her office by appointing her deputy to handle Smollett’s case because she said she had contact with a relative of Smollett’s after the fake hate crime occurred.
The judge ruling on the legality of that move said that Foxx’s action was unnecessary, appointing special prosecutor Dan Webb to handle the investigation.
Dan Webb, the special prosecutor appointed to the case, accused Foxx and her office of repeatedly abusing their discretion and making false public statements in the case against Smollett. His 12-page outline criticized Foxx and her staff for how they decided on March 26, 2019, to toss charges against the actor and singer. Among the focuses of Webb’s inquiry was whether Foxx acted improperly by speaking to a Smollett relative and a onetime aide of former first lady Michelle Obama , Tina Tchen, before the charges were dropped. It also looked at how Foxx only recused herself after news broke about the communication.
While Webb’s investigation did not lead to any criminal charges against Foxx or anyone else in her office, it did “develop evidence that establishes substantial abuses of discretion and operational failures” in the case.
Foxx like other local prosecutors backed by Soros has walked in lockstep with his other devotees around the U.S., defending the rejection of law & order in order to ensure “racial justice.” If the defendant has the right skin color, it’s more than possible that criminal charges will simply disappear.
A 2020 Chicago Tribune investigation into Foxx showed she dropped more felony cases involving charges of murder and other serious offenses at a higher rate than her predecessor. During Foxx’s first three years as Cook County’s top prosecutor, her office dropped all charges against 29.9% of felony defendants. Her predecessor, Anita Alvarez, had a rate of 19.4%.
In October, she became embroiled in a fight with Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot after she declined to press charges related to a shootout that left one dead. When Lightfoot urged Foxx to reconsider and “look at the evidence,” Foxx said: “I was quite honestly mortified by what happened yesterday, particularly because the mayor, as a former prosecutor, knows that what she did yesterday was inappropriate.”
It’s time for Chicago State’s Attorney Kim Foxx to leave her office, but in a corrupt state like Illinois, especially in the city of Chicago, don’t expect her voluntary departure, ever.
