John Kass: Retired judge has fought to shed daylight on Jussie Smollett case
Excerpt: Smollett is now the poster child for Chicago’s social justice warrior, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, and her obsequious deference to the Obama Celebrity Friends who wanted to help Smollett. Smollett was a Democratic and media hero for a time, telling the saga of how he fought off those racist, homophobic, Trump-loving thugs — with a tuna sandwich in one hand and his cellphone in the other. It all began to unravel when the thugs turned out to be those Nigerian bodybuilder friends of his, the brothers Osundairo, and Smollett was charged with 16 counts of faking a hate crime. Foxx dropped the charges the Chicago Way, but now a special prosecutor will be named to investigate not only Smollett but also Foxx herself and how she handled things.
