Smollett Fallout Continues in Chi-Town as Legislators Fight Back

Linkedin Share

Americans the nation over are furious in regard to the Jussie Smollett case, but nowhere is the fury more focused than in the Windy City.

Smollett, whose role on the television program Empire allowed him to bond with Chicago in a myriad of ways, is considered a persona non grata throughout much of the city today.  His hoaxed hate crime, and shady subsequent skating away from it, has angered Americans of all political stripes…including lawmakers.

One legislator in Chicago has had enough.

The prosecutors involved in the case, along with the Chicago Police department do believe that Jussie Smollett was not innocent in the case of the phony hate crime, and provided what amounted to a series of unacceptable excuses for their decision to let the actor off the hook.

This has led to a number of massive outcries against Smollett, the show Empire, and the legal team that concocted this out for Smollett.

Worse still; Smollett’s lawyers aren’t done making a ruckus, as they are now demanding an “apology” from the Chicago Police and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel over their continued pursuance of the case.

Smollett is accused, with evidence, of having paid two Empire extras to stage a fake hate crime against the actor, for the simple purpose of raising Smollett’s personal profile, thereby allowing him to demand a raise for his work.
