More Bad News for Jussie

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Jussie Smollett’s recent birthday.  He took to social media to say, “Grateful for LOVE.  Grateful for y’all.  Grateful for another year around the sun.”  Alas, he’s not getting much love from Chicago.  On Jussie’s birthday, Judge Michael Toomin called for a special prosecutor to examine the entire Smollett “incident”, including how it was handled by authorities.  Toomin specifically targeted Jussie: “In perhaps the most prominent display of his acting potential, Smollett conceived a fantasy that propelled him from the role of a sympathetic victim of a vicious homophobic attack to that of a charlatan who fermented a hoax the equal of any twisted television intrigue.”  I’m not sure, but I think that was a compliment to Jussie as an actor.  Judge Toomin added that a special prosecutor was needed “to restore the public’s confidence in our criminal justice system”.
