Dan Proft: “Completely Corrupt” Chicago

That hasn’t changed in the dismissal of charges against Jussie Smollett.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx is one of the Socialist Spice Girls put together by Michelle Obama’s top lieutenants. That’s why Mayor Rahm Emanuel was out of the communication loop.

Why would her office waive the customary demand for reduced sentencing by Smollett and offer no objection to the case file being immediately sealed?

Was Foxx making good on a promise?—accepting a bigger, better quid pro quo?—or just singing the tune she needed to sing to stay in the band?
