CHICAGO (WLS) — Former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois Dan Webb has been appointed as a special prosecutor in the Jussie Smollett case, a judge announced at a hearing in Chicago Friday.

A petition for a special prosecutor to investigate Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and her handling of the Jussie Smollett case was filed after Foxx shockingly dropped all 16 felony counts the actor faced for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack in January in Chicago.

“Empire” actor and R&B singer Jussie Smollett told Chicago police in January that two men physically attacked him and yelled racial and homophobic slurs. More

Looks like Chicago is going to have a do-over with regards to Smollet because the prosecutor is corrupt. Jussie Smollett may not be off scot-free just yet.

Look out, Kim Foxx.  The special prosecutor will investigate both Smollett and Foxx. She needs to be disbarred and put in prison for the blatant abuse of power.

America is still a land of law and order, no matter how many Smollett sympathizers that they had to stack the deck with.
