In the race for mayor, Bill Cameron says Toni Preckwinkle is backing States Attorney Foxx’s decision to intervene in the Jussie Smollett case.
Foxx asked Police Supt Eddie Johnson to transfer the Smollett case to the FBI at the request of Obama ally Tina Tchen.
Now Preckwinkle is saying her protege Kim Foxx made a good decision.
“I have great confidence in States Atty Foxx and I believe she made the right decision in this instance.
Cameron: Why do you think she made the right decision?
Preckwinkle: I think it was the right decision because it was the decision that she made and she’s in the best position to make it! (laughter)”
Preckwinkle got questions about the issue at her press conference announcing Congressman Danny Davis’ endorseement.
Lori Lightfoot countered that by announcing Congressman Mike Quigley’s endorsement of her.
