Racial hatemonger Jussie Smollett lost his conviction appeal on Friday and is likely to return to prison, leading many to wonder why Vice President Kamala Harris hasn't deleted her 2019 post on the stating that the actor was the victim of a “modern attempt”. Daily lynching.”
Then a senator, Harris wrote that Smollett “is one of the kindest and gentlest human beings I know.”
“I am praying for his speedy recovery,” the California Democrat said. “This was a modern lynching attempt. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or the color of their skin. We must stand up to this hatred.”

Of course, Smollett was not a victim of this, as the police soon discovered, and he was accused of having staged the “attack” by two Nigerian brothers and of lying to the police about it.
“He was sentenced to 150 days in jail, 30 months of probation, as well as $120,106 in restitution to the City of Chicago and a $25,000 fine,” it said. Fox News Digital.
Smollett's 2021 conviction on five of six disorderly conduct charges was upheld by an Illinois appeals court, and a representative for the actor, Holly Baird, told the network that his case will appealed to the Supreme Court.
“We want to emphasize that the decision was split, with Judge Lyle providing a detailed analysis in Smollett's favor,” Baird said. “We are preparing to escalate this matter to the Supreme Court, armed with a substantial body of evidence.”
Meanwhile, Special Prosecutor Dan. K. Webb, is satisfied with the court's ruling.
“As the appeals court pointed out, Mr. Smollett 'contests[d] virtually every aspect of the indictment, and the appeals court correctly rejected each and every one of those challenges,” he said in a statement Friday. “Today's decision is a validation of Winston's tireless work & Strawn on this issue and a resounding victory for justice. We are proud to have prevailed in a case that we believe can help restore public confidence in the Cook County justice system.”
“It's over, as far as the Illinois appellate court is concerned,” Webb told Fox 32 Chicago.
“We're at the end of the road,” he said. “I have a team of lawyers who have worked very hard for many years to do what we were asked to do and to help restore public confidence in the judicial system.”
“I think we have succeeded,” he added.
AX, many believe Smollett got off easy with a 150 day sentence.
It deserves more than 150 days

It was easy. He caused a lot of damage by trying to divide us. It should have a much larger amount of time.

Not nearly enough time. Lying and attempting to incite race riots is a serious crime. This should not be controversial.
