The Chicago Police Department attributed actor Jussie Smollett's motive for staging a hoax hate crime in Streeterville, Chicago during on polar blast on January 29th as an attempt to garner a higher salary on the Fox TV series "Empire".
Perhaps, but how does that square with Jussie Smollett's emotional softball interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.
To that end, Smollett opined that the reason why he was attacked was because he comes at the Trump Administration "really, really hard". Smollett has been quite visible in his political activism. And enquiring minds want to know if there were connections (or just political opportunism) between the Smollett drama and Democrat Presidential hopeful Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) offering anti-lynching legislation.
