Mayor calls dropping of charges against Jussie Smollett a ‘whitewash of justice’
CHICAGO -- Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called the dropping of charges against "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett "a whitewash of justice." The comments Tuesday came after prosecutors dropped charges accusing Smollett of lying to police about a racist and homophobic attack in downtown Chicago. "Where is the accountability in the system?" a visibly angry Emanuel said.
