Cook County judge rips Foxx over Smolllett case hypocrisy

The well justified attacks on the leftist Crook County prosecutor continue.

From the Daily Mail:
A Chicago judge has lambasted Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx's office for dropping charges against actor Jussie Smollett but pressing forward with similar charges against an unknown citizen.

Judge Marc Martin hammered prosecutors in a tirade from the bench earlier this month in a Rolling Meadows courtroom outside Chicago, demanding to know why there appeared to be a double standard.

The judge's screed was prompted by the case of 21-year-old Candace Clark, who is accused of giving a friend access to her bank account and then falsely telling police that money had been stolen from it. Clark is charged with a felony.

'I'd like to know why Ms. Clark is being treated differently than Jussie Smollett,' Judge Martin blasted from the bench, WFLD-TV reported. 'It's a disorderly conduct case. A lot less egregious than Mr. Smollett's case. I have a problem with it.'
