Kamala Harris pitches ‘Kim Foxx is smart on crime’ message in robocall to Cook County residents
The Chicago Tribune ^ | October 29, 2020 | Alice Yin

Some Cook County residents will be hearing from Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris on why the former prosecutor thinks state’s attorney Kim Foxx’s progressive vision is the right choice for voters this November.

In a robocall scheduled to be sent out this week, the U.S. senator from California ramps up her February endorsement of the Democratic incumbent and defends the county’s top prosecutor’s record in reforming criminal justice, Foxx’s campaign announced Wednesday. She portrays Foxx as a bulwark against Republican President Donald Trump’s policies, which the state’s attorney’s office has sued the administration over, in a bid to parlay any resentment of Trump in the deep-blue county into enthusiasm for Foxx.

“As a former prosecutor I know firsthand that the state’s attorney is a position that has the power to change lives,” Harris says in the recording. “And this is exactly what Kim Foxx has done in her four years in office. Kim has used her position to stand up to Donald Trump’s policies and protect our communities.”

“Last-ditch tactics like this tell us that Kim Foxx is rightfully concerned that she will lose this race,” Brad Goodman wrote in a statement. “Kim Foxx can line up as many robocalls from politicians outside of Cook County as she wants, but Cook County voters know the truth about her record: Under Foxx, crime is up, prosecutions are down, and families and neighborhoods are less safe.”

Cynics will recall that Kamala Harris was one of the first national Democrats to peddle the Jussie Smollett hoax as being a genuine hate crime.

That’s why she’s known as Crimesha on the Second City Cop blog.

It’s worth noting that some of the Illinois felons who are set free sometimes travel to other states: witness what happened in Kenosha, Wisconsin recently or the Chicago street gangs that have colonized the Twin Cities.

Your myopia is not helping the USA.

What the hell? Do people actually exist who believe this BS?

You know, I once thought there could be nobody more annoying than Hillary, even worse Hillary as President. But after seeing 60 minutes last Sunday, I changed my mind.

A President Kamala Harris would be like having to hear nails on a blackboard 24 hours a day 365 days a year for years. Kamala has to be the most annoying human being I have EVER seen, heard in my life.

If someone has no idea what I’m talking about, here is an excerpt from that interview last Sunday. Watch it at your own peril........

I actually believe that might cost Foxx some votes.

That comment is a bit harsh. Many of us can’t leave the state for reasons such as jobs, businesses, elderly parents and family issues. We lay low, vote straight Republican and pray that the dear Lord gives the Trump administration the opportunity to investigate the snakes in our state’s government that are holding us in bondage.
