CHICAGO (AP) — A state’s attorney in Chicago has asked the county’s inspector general to review how her office handled “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett’s criminal case.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx said in a statement Friday that she pledges her “full cooperation” and welcomes the investigation from Inspector General Patrick Blanchard. Foxx says “ensuring that I and my office have the community’s trust and confidence is paramount to me.”

The Chicago Tribune reports that Blanchard wrote a letter Thursday informing Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and other county leaders about Foxx’s request.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and others have criticized the decision by Foxx’s office to drop charges against Smollett accusing him of filing a false report to police that he was the victim of a racist, anti-gay attack in January.

    Right now she doesn’t have the trust of the community. She should have let this play out the way it was supposed to and then this added drama wouldn’t be happening.

    • True but the media blow this case and make it more. Do u know how many cases like this are done? A good many but the media blows up cases and make more a big deal and people jump on the bandwagon and now folks are mad. This is why people need to stop trying cases in court of public opinion or trying to make people “victims” when they do not know if that is a true case or not. I will say it again, I will NEVER TRUST anyone to wants to try their case in the public, do in court. When people learn to do that, then we wont have cases like this when the facts do come out.
