City of Chicago Files Civil Lawsuit Against Alleged Hate Crime Hoaxer Jussie Smollett


Might alleged hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollet finally have to answer for his supposedly divisive actions? He will if the city of Chicago has anything to say about it.

According to Fox News, the city of Chicago filed a civil lawsuit against Smollett on Thursday in an effort to recoup city funds spent on investigating Smollett’s allegedly false hate crime hoax. The lawsuit reportedly stated that the civil complaint against Smollett “pursues the full measure of damages allowed under the false statements ordinance.”

The USA Today reported:

“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett purposely attempted to mislead police by falsely describing alleged assailants who he said attacked him on a cold January night as white men, the city of Chicago claimed in a civil lawsuit filed Thursday.

The allegation comes in a lawsuit filed by the city, which is attempting to force the actor to pay back more than $130,000 they say the police department spent in overtime costs to investigate a supposed hoax attack set up by the actor.

One thing that hasn’t been asked of Smollett is that he apologize for attempting to paint an entire segment of the population (Trump supporters) as racist. Although don’t hold your breath for an apology since probably because pathological liars don’t typically apologize.

Maybe the city of Chicago should go the way of the attorneys for Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and sue media organizations and politicians for helping push a false narrative. The city could get back a lot more than the original $130,000 they were seeking. The media was absolutely complicit in helping Smollett seemingly and continuously lie to the American public. Here’s looking at you, Robin Roberts.
