    ook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office opposes appointing a special prosecutor to investigate the dismissal of charges against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.

    Foxx had recused herself from the case after saying she communicated with a relative of Smollett’s in the early phases of the investigation but a filing by prosecutors Tuesday argued that Foxx did not have an actual conflict of interest.

    Prosecutors also echoed Smollett’s attorneys in arguing that the appointment is unnecessary, since the county inspector general’s office — at Foxx’s request — is already investigating the controversy.

    Foxx’s office also sought to quash subpoenas seeking her appearance at a hearing Thursday on the proposed appointment.

    Sheila O’Brien, a retired state appellate judge, sought the special prosecutor the week after Foxx’s office dropped all 16 felony charges against Smollett at an unannounced hearing in March. The decision sparked outrage and drew headlines nationwide.

    In her petition, O’Brien highlighted how Foxx said she recused herself in the early stages of the investigation — only to claim recently that it was not a recusal “in the legal sense” that would have required the entire office to withdraw from the prosecution.

    Most guilty people to oppose having people investigate them. Is this really news?
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    Accountability sucks. There are so many irregularities in how she did what she did that she should take a laxative.
