New Chicago Mayor Says Jussie Smollett Must Be Held Accountable


Last week Chicago elected its first openly gay Black female Mayor Lori Lightfoot [Click here if you missed that].

Now Mayor elect Lightfoot turns her sights to Jussie Smollett...

Mayor Lightfoot tells MSNBC,
“I believe that everybody is entitled to a presumption of innocence. But I saw — as I’m sure you and your listeners saw — a very compelling case, with video tapes, witness statement and other information that looked like he had staged a hoax, and if that happened he’s got to be held accountable.”
Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx dropped the case against Jussie Smollett after he agreed to forfeit his $10,000 bond and complete 16 hours of community service after he was accused of staging a hate crime for publicity [click here if you missed that].

All this fuss about this one guy, he's not even that good of an actor it's not like he got the acting chops of like a Don Cheadle or a Sidney Poitier. Probably the side piece of some political figure with clout that has all these fractions in a pissing contest and dying on hill's not worth dying on. I'm sure there are ways to make his life a little uncomfortable if he does not pay the money back, wasted on his maga hoax. I'm tired of hearing about this basic ass nigga.

Why waste money on keeping the citizens safe, affordable housing and decent public schools and finding those thousands of missing black women, when you can distract with a narcissistic basic ass "actor" who brings publicity. At this point the shit is sad same with Flint water crisis.

That $130,000 needs to be paid. She was asked and simply responded. She has experience on the police force. I trust she will direct her attention im a fake way once the public spectacle has waned a bit. It takes time to adjust to years of lazy and complacent rules in place already. I was born and raised in Chicago and its not going to be easy for Lightfoot. Crime is a business and if people think that's going away you are definitely smoking something!

@8:55, 9:03, 8:46 But if she said she believes him then y'all would be saying she's giving him a pass because he's gay....make up your minds. Do y'all want everyone to be treated to the same standards or not??

Meanwhile Jussie somewhere laying low and giving no fux. At least he's not on tv begging the media to go easy on him.
As for the new Mayor she answered the question in an honest and direct way.

I got a few friends that were thinking about moving to Chicago. This shit is such a black eye and shows what a Mickey Mouse operation they're running. No thanks, I'll pass. At least let be live in a city where the elected officials have the decency to at least act like they give a damn about the people suffering and not one half-assed actor.

I don't blame the city of Chicago for charging him he could be locked up over this mess.

They never tried him/found him guilty but want him to pay $130K. Fux them. If they had such a strong case and all this evidence they should've went forward and convicted his ass. This is over...there are far worse and more important issues going in Corrupt-cago than Jussie Smollet.

I don't what's the truth but anyone with anyone with three eyes could tell something was wrong with his alibi and with the way Chicago handled everything. Very strange. On both sides.

In more ways than just monetary- the damage he has done to victims of hate is insufferable.

He HASN'T DONE A DAMN THING to victims of hate. Anyone who would judge ALL hate accusations by this single situation is ALREADY a bigot.
