Now’s the time to call some of those well-connected friends so she can get the name of a top-notch lawyer.
In Chicago — doing a favor for a political friend is supposed to HELP you, not hurt you, right?
Not in this case. And the best evidence that she was doing a special favor for Smollett is the difference in how she handled that case, and another case of filing a false police report since then, as noted by Judge Marc Martin:
Cook County judge Marc Martin, while presiding over an unrelated case, chastised Foxx and her office for creating an untenable situation in which anyone charged with filing a false police report should expect to be granted the leniency afforded to Smollett.
“Well, Ms. Clark is not a movie star, she doesn’t have a high-price lawyer, although, her lawyer’s very good. And this smells, big time. I didn’t create this mess, your office created this mess. And your explanation is unsatisfactory to this court. She’s being treated differently,” Martin said to Foxx during a recent court proceeding, according to a transcript obtained by a local Fox affiliate.
“There’s no publicity on this case. She doesn’t have Mark Geragos as her lawyer or Ron Safer or Judge Brown,” Martin continued. “It’s not right. And [if] I proceed in this matter, you’re just digging yourselves further in a hole. [If the] press gets a hold of this, it’ll be in a newspaper. Why is Ms. Clark being treated differently than Mr. Smollett?”
The price to be paid for Kim Foxx making Smollett’s 16 charges ‘go away’ will be standing in front of a judge herself.
Chicago’s top prosecutor has been subpoenaed to appear in court by a retired appellate judge who’s pushing for a special prosecutor to investigate the handling of the case against actor Jussie Smollett.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Sheila O’Brien also subpoenaed Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s top deputy and requested that Smollett appear at a hearing on her request.
The good news is, that there are still some Chicagoans in positions of authority who still believe in equality under the law, and are willing to pay a reputational price to bring it to bear.
This could get interesting.
Very interesting, indeed.

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
