Embattled Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx yesterday issued a statement reacting to the Special Prosecutor’s decision to re-indict Jussie Smollett, whom Foxx essentially let go. Her statement, from CBS Chicago:

Kim Foxx

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office charged Jussie Smollett with multiple counts, and today the Special Prosecutor did the same. What’s questionable here is the James Comey-like timing of that charging decision, just 35 days before an election, which can only be interpreted as the further politicization of the justice system, something voters in the era of Donald Trump should consider offensive.

Is there anything in politics today that somebody somehow won’t tie to Trump?

She is simply using the old “straw man” type of argument that the Democrats do so well with in Illinois. To me it speaks for the mentality of the Illinois voters who are taken in by these logical fallacies.

What voters should consider offensive is your soft stance on crime, Ms. Foxx.

Pull a democratic ticket for the primary and vote for Connely. Then vote in the regular election for whoever is best. We need to dump this goof.
