Typical Cook County

Conflict of interest? The appearance of a conflict? No problem:
  • Democrat Kim Foxx is doing consultant work for an influential Chicago law firm, but she insisted Monday there would be no conflict of interest for her to make decisions on lawsuits brought by that firm against Cook County should she be elected state's attorney.

    The powerhouse personal injury firm Power Rogers and Smith has sued Cook County and Chicago on cases ranging from medical negligence to wrongful police shootings, winning several multimillion-dollar judgments and settlements.

    And while she's been a consultant for the firm since leaving the county payroll a year ago as she's run for the county's top legal post, Foxx said Monday that collecting checks from the firm now doesn't present a conflict for her in making decisions on cases Rogers Power and Smith files against the county in the future.

    Her reason: By then, she'll no longer be getting paid by the law firm.
Golly, she's got that whole election thing already wrapped up. And when you get that registered envelope from Rogers, Power and Smith for your next lawsuit, you can rest assured that Ms Foxx isn't getting any money from them...because she said so.

HINT, WINK its an up front pay off kinda like paying old president 250 k for canned speeches.
Do you honestly think a firm would hire a lawyer who basically handled kid crimes at JUVY?
And the chief of staff stuff she used to do will help funnel cash back to PRICK_wrinkle.

But now she will be considered a great scholar who prosecuted a handful of criminal cases. Kinda like RAHM being on a banking board after Clinton gave him the boot and soaking up a few hundred thousand.

She is a piker. A family of true grifters like Hillary and Bill Clinton do it right. They set up a charitable foundation to collect all the contributions/bribes/tribute. And you can continue the scam even when you are a government official, like Secretary of State, because the money isn't given to you, it is given to your hubby and that charitable foundation. You don't have something against "non-profit charities," do you?

Vote Foxx, because she is as honest as any Cook County Democrat!
Vote Clinton, because you know she can be bought!

Once again, the media has already coronated Foxx as the new State's Atty. despite facing a viable (but Caucasian) candidate this
November 1. Recently, WTTW Chicago Tonight was discussing the court system and moderator Phil Ponce labeled Foxx as
State's Atty. Elect. I sent a comment but Ch. 11 didn't air it or issue a retraction/correction.
Vote for Christopher Pfannkuche for State's Atty.
Don't elect a Marilyn Mosby clone who already is showing her corrupt motivation to prolong the ghetto lottery!
Stop a Prickwrinkle attempt to become the County's Contessa!

Connect the dots: Larry Rogers, Jr., is a member of the law firm.

Electing Kim Foxx is the equivalent of choosing Todd Stroger to serve as State's Attorney. She is that unqualified.

The only sane alternative is to vote for her opponent Christopher Pfannkuche for State's Attorney.

Cook County state’s attorney candidate Kim Foxx was fined nearly $20,000 Monday by the Illinois State Board of Elections after missing a variety of deadlines for filing campaign disclosure forms and failing to report a substantial donation from Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle.

In February, the Illinois State Board of Elections ruled unanimously that Foxx violated campaign finance law by not disclosing a $25,000 donation from Preckwinkle. The donation was used to pay for a campaign poll.

You have voted against one crooked politician and replaced her with another phony and yet people wonder how to stop crime in Chicago? Crime and corruption start with the State's Attorney's Office and the bench in Cook County. I think this comment is borne out everyday and you cops see it most often. It must be very frustrating because I only read about it and I am sick to death of the parade of bonders, parolees and jag offs arrested multiple times sharing the streets with the rest of us.

At least Todd Stroger had more qualifications than Kim Fox. You forgot he we was State Rep for many years, then Alderman to the Cook County Board. Stroger still had more qualifications then Preckwinkle . She was only an Alderman

That is not fair. In Illinois' long history of incompetent elected officials, none has been more incompetent than Todd Stroger. That clown had no business running a ice cream truck, let alone one of the most populated counties in the country.

Now, will she be a completely unqualified hack? Most definitely. But no one can compare to Toddy.

Holy shit. This Kim Foxx is another Marilyn Mosby. Another State's Attorney that has the IQ of a f--king stick! How the hell do these morons get a Law Degree and how the hell do they pass the Bar Exam? Shit, how in the hell do they even get into Law School ????

So get ready boys and girls, it's going too be a bumpy ride. Chicago has ten times more prime areas to burn to the ground during a riot than 'tiny' Baltimore does. Surviving four years of this nitwit as CCSA is going to be a challenge of Herculean proportions, for both citizens and you coppers.

She may as well call Tommy 'The Hobo' Dart now and tell him to get going and put revolving doors on the Jail cells. Well, that is, except for the Maximum Security Jail Cells Kim Foxx has planned to put all you 'Killer Cops' in.

Oh well, until then.... 11-David

Look, you can talk all you want about the other candidate, but I just saw the live editorial board on the Tribune website. He had his chance to seal the deal for me and just shot a empty load. When faced with the question of mandatory minimums for violent crimes, by the way, yes I am black and I fully support, he whiffed. Kim Foxx did not do any better. They both complained that they are not in control of judges but damn, be a leader and draft some legislation with some teeth. Shocking but not surprising that all lawyers are the same, middle of the road and not wishing to piss anyone off. There is blood running in the streets, just the other night that viral video of a young man whipping out a pistol in Wrigleyville at 3am and Kim Foxx states oh well it depends on how many points the offender accrues. WTF, so we wait until he fires off rounds in a loaded park and then decide to lock his worthless trifling ass up? And your boy states, oh, well I am willing to work with anyone to get something done. Fuck that. Be a leader in a elected position and you draft it, if they turn it down, put it on the blog and say well look, I tried this is what got shot down. Fuck the both of them.

I agree with you but we are stuck, the same as the national election, two poor choices. I believe what is needed in every major city is a two point attack. In the short term, longer prison sentences for the shooters and felons carrying guns, much longer and in prisons as far away f rom their homes as we can get. In the long term? One stop centers in the inner city for mental health, physical health, job training and jobs. People need to know how to get a job, where to look and how to work and how to keep the job. Working is a socialization factor and from what I see way too many people just don't know what to do. I can't stand Father faker, but he had the right idea about these one stop centers. Better public transportation to get people to the jobs, many of which are in the suburbs. It will take a generation to turn this around and it is about time that our legislators start to do it. Lock up the predicators and keep them locked up and work hard on the people who want to do something with their lives and help them to succeed. What is going on now in the black areas of many cities in this country is beyond belief and just plain wrong. It is a national emergency. The Black legislative Caucus is failing this generation of people. Shame on all of these politicians. By the way a big FU to the ACLU and all progressives for ripping on the cops as a daily habit. They just don't understand that being the police in any urban area is not a gentlemen's game.

Check out Joanna the commie Klonsky who is high in foxx campaign. Her parents are communists and were close to Ayers and the rest of those pos liberals in the 60s. Mike Klonsky is a big CTU ahole. Also Rebekah Reynolds works with foxx. She started the liberal Chicago votes group that is fighting voter identification laws. Klonsky is the press and media person for the black and progressive caucus. So wTch who you trust in that progressive caucus. Arena and Scott w are not to be trusted. Klonsky also represents pig faced criminal Patrick Daley. Check her out. She's also close to ahole Ben Jovarsky if the reader. And Dan M of the scum times does klonskys bidding and they trade information. These are very dangerous people.

There is no comparison between Kimm Foxx and her opponent:

Christopher E. K. Pfannkuche, an experienced prosecutor, is a Chicago native, a life-long prosecutor, teacher, and public servant. He comes from a family of teachers.

Christopher has served as a criminal prosecutor for three different government agencies: The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, the Macon County (IL) State’s Attorney’s Office, and the Special Prosecutor’s Office.

In Cook County, Christopher served 31 years as a Criminal Prosecutor with the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. He served as a Trial Supervisor in the Felony Review Unit, reviewing Murder cases, police shootings, press cases, search warrants, and a variety of other felony cases, while also overseeing a team of prosecutors under him. He spent 20 years in the Felony Trial Division, litigating over 2000 felony cases, and handling over 10,000 felony cases. His misdemeanor and traffic litigation experience is also extensive. He has prosecuted a variety of violent crimes including murders, sex offenses, armed robberies, home invasions, weapons offenses, and drug offenses, as well as various misdemeanors and drunk driving offenses. Additionally, Christopher has prosecuted corrupt government employees under Official Misconduct charges, as well as a variety of financial crimes including: theft, embezzlement, insurance fraud, welfare fraud, governmental fraud, and bribery. Whether the criminal offenders were elected officials with “clout”, low level patronage workers, or the typical “street criminal”, he pursued their convictions with the highest professionalism.

Where was Foxx? In an entry level job at the Juvenile Court for ages without being promoted to a more responsible position. She was cited by the State Board of Elections for not disclosing campaign contributions from Preckwinkle and she lied about her trial experience and supervisory experience.

Apart from playing the race card, she has nothing to offer the voting public.

One wonders "How did Foxx graduate from law school(Southern Illinois University Law School) since she does not understand a basic question concerning legal ethics? Was she absent when students were taught about potential conflicts related to former clients?

According to Foxx, she would not have to recuse herself from decisions concerning her clients at Power, Rogers & Smith as State's Attorney unless she was representing the clients and Cook County simultaneously. W-R-O-N-G A-N-S-W-E-R. An attorney continues to have obligations and responsibilities to former clients as well under certain circumstances which could cause a conflict of interest.

This candidate is dumber than a box of rocks.
