She officially recused herself from the Jussie Smollett case, but Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx has come under fire after her office made the stunning decision to drop all charges against the celebrity actor accused of orchestrating an elaborate hate crimes hoax.
The Chicago police union reiterated calls Wednesday for a federal investigation into Ms. Foxx's handling of the case, starting with her behind-the-scenes contact with the police chief on the Smollett family's behalf after being contacted by Tina Tchen, a onetime aide to former first lady Michelle Obama.
"It's outrageous, but this is nothing new for Kim Foxx," said Martin Preib, Fraternal Order of Police [FOP] Chicago Lodge 7 second vice president. "We've been complaining about her for two years on so many levels. Her office is just completely out of control."

"Foxx's campaign was bankrolled in large part by Illinois Safety & Justice, which was funded with $408,000 from Democratic mega-donor George Soros," according to Richardson, as "part of an effort in at least 20 jurisdictions to elect progressive and minority prosecutors following the 2014 Ferguson shooting."
