City of Chicago to Sue Jussie Smollett After He Refuses to Reimburse Police for Hate Hoax Investigation

The city will sue Smollett for $130,000, the cost spent investigating his January hate hoax.

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.
