Jussie Smollett escaped accountability for orchestrating a hate hoax in which he claimed to have been attacked by racist Trump supporters in January, with criminal charges related to the matter mysteriously and unexplainably dismissed.
However, it appears the Chicago actor might not be so lucky in upcoming civil proceedings meant to collect the costs of the investigation arising from the fake police report he submitted over the incident.
The City of Chicago has expressed its intention to recoup $130,000- the costs of police overtime spent investigating Smollett’s police report- in upcoming civil court proceedings.
The City had previously sent Smollett a letter formally requesting that he pay that amount to the city treasury. Smollett was provided seven days to make the payment to the city, after which the matter would be litigated in the Circuit Court of Cook County.
The City’s Democrat Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, had spoken about his desire to see Smollett pay penalties for his role in the hoax, which involved Smollett paying two Nigerian brothers to play the role of racist Trump supporters and “attack” him in a fanciful event.
Emanuel has called for Smollett to deliver a check to the city, specifying in the document’s memo line that he takes accountability for the hoax. He previously slammed the dubious decision by Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx to drop charges without an explanation as a “whitewash of justice.”
It seems as if Smollett will walk away unscathed from the 16 felony charges he faced, although the dismissal of the charges are still being investigated by the FBI. Making financial amends is the least the people of Chicago can expect from the hate hoax artist.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
