Smollett facing fed charges

Not for the racist hoax on the street but an earlier hoax with a racist letter. Postal inspectors were not amused.

Good reporting from CWBChicago. Proof, as Don Suber says, that journalism is not dead.

UPDATE:  The serious blog American Thinker has picked it up: “If he was indeed responsible for the sending of a letter to the Fox Chicago studios where Empire is produced, he has triggered federal charges that carry hard time.”

MORE: ABC News has it now, citing two unnamed federal officials that it is “an investigation.” And Breitbart.

  1. Wow..haven’t seen anything about this!

  2. And not likely to until it’s a done deal, unless the Chicago (or other) papers/stations pay attention to CWB, a community news site.

  3. Supposedly the FBI has the letter so who knows what will come of it.

  4. Postal inspectors are independent of Fart, Barf & Itch, but probably just as susceptible to politics.
