An Unrepentant Jussie Smollett Refuses To Reimburse City of Chicago

by Michael John Scott

So, little known actor Jussie Smollett, is spitting in the face of the city that allowed him to get away with committing multiple felonies.  This is the height of arrogance, and this guy needs to be forced to pay whatever consequences remain.

The City of Chicago does say it is taking Smollett to court for refusing to cough up $130,000 to reimburse the city for the investigation of the hate crime he allegedly staged. The city sent the Empire actor a bill last week, saying taxpayers deserved to get the money back.

The city also threatened legal action if the ungrateful and unrepentant Smollett didn’t pay by the seven-day deadline, which expired on Thursday. The bill was for hundreds of hours of overtime police clocked up investigating the alleged Jan. 29 attack on the actor.

Smollett was later accused of staging the attack and although prosecutors eventually dropped all 16 felony charges against him, they admitted that they believed the attack was a hoax.

Smollett completed two days of community service and agreed to forfeit a $10,000 bond, but still maintained he was innocent. “The Law Department will file the suit in the near future. As part of this legal action, the Law Department will pursue the full measure of damages allowed under the ordinance,” Chicago Law Department spokesman Bill McCaffrey said in a statement Thursday night. “Once it is filed, the Law Department will send a courtesy copy of the complaint to Mr. Smollett’s Los Angeles-based legal team.”

The AP notes that a lawsuit could lead to a long battle in civil court, which could result in a trial to determine whether Smollett staged the attack. I hope this guy never works in Hollywood again.

        Just been hanging out getting a new job, flipping another remodel purchase and new guy in life. Life is fucking good right now, compared to a couple of years ago at this time.
