News from MAGA Country: Chicago files suit against Smollett for hoax costs

While Chicago may not be "MAGA Country," as Jussie Smollett claims, it is not completely stupid, despite its decades of fiscal mismanagement. It has followed through on its threat to sue him.

From ABC Chicago:
The city of Chicago has filed a lawsuit against actor Jussie Smollett for the cost of the overtime Chicago police spent investigating an attack they say Smollett staged.

The City of Chicago's Law Department filed the suit after Smollett failed to meet a city-demanded deadline to pay more than $130,000 into that allegedly staged attack.

The lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County and a spokesperson from the Department of Law said it "pursues the full measure of damages allowed under the false statements ordinance. This follows his refusal to reimburse the City of Chicago for the cost of police overtime spent investigating his false police report on January 29, 2019."

I'm wondering where the federal charges are? Or does Hillary have some say in that too?
