Lesbian Feminist Testifies Against the ‘Equality Act’

1beck

A 2 April 2019 National Review article points to the words of lesbian feminist Julia Beck as she points out many of the things that Christians have regarding the Equality Act. Specifically, she points out many instances where the Equality Act will allow the blurring of lines that protect women.

On Tuesday Julia Beck testified against the Equality Act (H.R. 5) before the House Judiciary Committee. Beck is a lesbian who was booted out of the Baltimore LGBT Commission for describing a male transgender rapist as a male and saying that men can’t be lesbians.

Advocates of the Equality Act characterize it as anti-discrimination for LGBT people and a much-needed extension of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Nearly 300 Democrats (and a few Republicans) support the bill. It is scheduled for hearings later this spring, and a vote this summer. It will likely pass the House, if not yet the Senate.

In her testimony, Beck said the law would mean that,

male rapists will go to women’s prisons and likely assault female inmates as has already happened in the U.K.; female survivors of rape will be unable to contest male presence in women’s shelters; men will dominate women’s sports — girls who would have taken first place will be denied scholastic opportunity; women who use male pronouns to talk about men may be arrested, fined, and banned from social media platforms; girls will stay home from school when they have their periods to avoid harassment by boys in mixed-space toilets; girls and women will no longer have a right to ask for female medical staff or intimate care providers, including elderly or disabled women who are at serious risk of sexual abuse; female security officers will no longer have the right to refuse to perform pat-downs or intimate searches of males who say they’re female and women undergoing security checks will no longer have the right to refuse having those security checks being performed by men claiming a feminine identity.

She pointed out that “everything I just listed is already happening, and it’s only going to get worse if gender identity is recognized in federal law.” And added, “I urge my fellow Democrats to wake up. Please acknowledge biological reality.”

Now that a recognized leader in the lesbian community has said the same thing that Christians (such as Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association) has been saying, maybe more people in government will start to take note.

Then again, maybe they will just sideline Ms. Beck just like they have sidelined Christians.

Still, with that said, what about the Christians who want to live out their faith despite aggressive attacks from liberal activists? What about Jack Phillips and his Masterpiece Cakeshop? What about the former owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa? What about Barronelle Stutzman?

Rep. Nadler says that we cannot hide behind religion when discriminating against transgenders and homosexuals. Can this question be turned around? Have lesbians used their power with liberal states to persecute Christians? Is there equal representation under the law?

Houston Library continues program after registered sex offender found in Drag Queen Storytime

houston-storytime-drag-suspect

The Houston Chronicle tells of Alberto Garza in a 17 March 2010 article, a transgender who was convicted of abusing an 8-year-old boy has now been found participating in the Houston Public Library’s program that has transgenders reading to preschoolers. What can go wrong there?

Houston Public Library officials apologized Friday for failing to conduct a background check on a registered sex offender who read books to children at an event hosted by drag queens.

Albert Garza, a 32-year-old registered sex offender, participated in the program under the name Tatiana Mala-Niña, according to the conservative anti-LGBTQ group, MassResistance.

Library officials acknowledged in a statement Friday that Garza has “a criminal background that should have prevented him from participating” in the Drag Queen Storytime program, in which drag queens read books at the Freed-Montrose library.

Department of Public Safety records show Garza was convicted of aggravated sexual assault of an 8-year-old child in 2009, for which he received five years of probation and community supervision.

Mala-Niña did not respond to attempts Saturday to confirm her apparent criminal background.

“We assure you that this participant will not be involved in any future HPL programs,” the library’s statement reads. “…We deeply regret this oversight and the concern this may cause our customers. We realize this is a serious matter.”

Although many citizens of Houston’s Montrose would not be surprised to find that a transvestite who was reading to children at the public library was a registered sex offender, this is still a breach of the public trust. The sad thing is that it was not the Houston Public Library’s last breach of trust under this program.

Second Child Sex Offender Unmasked at Drag Queen Story Time, Houston Activists Say

Sex-Offender-Drag-Queen_sized-770x415xc

According to a 5 April 2019 article on PJ Media, a second child abuser discovered within the Houston Public Library Drag Queen program.

On Thursday, activist parents with MassResistance unmasked another child sex offender who greeted children at Drag Queen Story Time. According to local MassResistance leader Tracy Shannon, a drag performer with many aliases has sexually assaulted children and publicly recounted his history as a transgender dominatrix and prostitute for hire. His name has been redacted here because he was allegedly convicted for sexual assault against children at age 16, so his record has been sealed.

“We have another big reveal today at our press conference which will take place at 2 PM at the Freed Montrose Library,” Shannon announced in an email. “Due to this individual using multiple aliases and having moved around a lot it was hard to nail down his identity but we finally connected the dots. We found his name a few days ago but trying to find some affirmation and photos was like looking for a needle in a haystack of social media postings.”

“Once we affirmed the identity we ran background checks and found the record. We will reveal all at 2 PM Central time at our press conference,” she added. She also excoriated the Houston Public Library (HPL) system for allowing child sex offenders to greet children.

At the conference, “MassResistance will demand an audit of the entire HPL background checks vs volunteer applications to see how many have experienced an ‘oversight’ and how many sex offenders have been allowed to participate in children’s programming at the libraries in Houston. We will also be demanding a city ordinance that requires background checks for all city-sanctioned programs for children when we have our press conference.”

Shannon sent PJ Media the research document outlining how MassResistance uncovered this second alleged sex offender.

She connected the man to an article at About Online recalling experiences in “sex work” as a “professional dominatrix.” At the beginning, the anonymous author admitted, “I had tried for so many years to alleviate my depression and dysphoria through random sex, I had lost track of how many partners I’ve had.” This eased the transition from “sex work” to becoming a transgender prostitute and porn actor.

Hat tip: Frank and Freeda Blunt, Trigger Reset

Hopefully, this will be the last breach of trust for the Houston Public Library for a while.

We must protect children and others who are incapable of protecting themselves. Allowing preditors, whether in the library or in the church, does not cut it. We need to either stay with them or know those in whom we trust our children.

From Baylor to Yale, Free Speech for Christians Is Dying, and Ted Cruz Wants Some Answers

As made evident in a 5 April 2019 Christian Broadcasting Network article, even liberals on Christian campuses are threatened by Christian speakers coming with messages that other crowds of Christians want to hear.

Freedom of speech is under fire now possibly more than ever on college campuses as this fundamental American freedom is being stripped from students, professors, and even public speakers.

Examples of threats to free speech continue to roll in across the nation, especially for Christians and conservatives and their biblical stand on issues.

Even at a Christian university in the Bible belt, free speech is at risk. Some at Baylor University in Texas are trying to stop Matt Walsh, a Christian author and blogger, from speaking on campus.

Walsh was invited by Baylor’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter to give a speech titled, “The War on Reality: Why the Left Has Set out to Redefine Life, Gender, and Marriage.”

It didn’t sit well with some students and so they circulated a petition to stop him from speaking on the topic from a biblical perspective.

The petition accuses Walsh of spreading “harmful hate speech.” Some students even vandalized posters advertising the event.

Walsh took to Twitter saying he simply wants to express a point of view, is trying to have a good sense of humor about the protest, and is asking students to try to have a rational dialogue with him.

Organizers say the event, scheduled for April 9, is now sold out.

A second recent case involves Yale Law School saying students who work for Christian groups supporting biblical teaching on marriage being between one man and one woman will no longer receive school financial support.

The controversy erupted when an attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom was invited to speak on campus about Christian baker Jack Phillips who, for religious reasons, declined to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.

A number of Yale’s liberal groups, including the LGBTQ advocacy group the “Outlaws” protested the speech and the school’s financial help to conservative students.

Yale responded by pulling the funding for students who follow their biblical beliefs.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) is now involved. He sent a letter to the dean of the Yale Law School saying its new policy is “transparently discriminatory” and intended to “blacklist Christian organizations.” Cruz has threatened legal action.

It would seem that a number of liberals have flocked to the private institutions founded by religious groups (like Baylor, which is currently at least partially funded by the Southern Baptist Convention). Therefore, it seems that Christians have been tolerant of liberals who moved into their halls of learning. However, it also seems that those same liberals cannot be tolerant of Christians.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Melts Down over Criticism of Fake Accent

This Breitbart article highlights both the extremes of pandering that the Democrats have fallen to and the degree of pain they feel upon being called out for that pandering.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded to criticism for her patronizing use of a fake accent in front of a black audience in the usual manner — crybabying.

The not-terribly-bright socialist was caught on video Friday patronizing the mostly black audience with a fake southern drawl at Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference.

The humiliating video quickly made the rounds on social media, earning the criticism and ridicule it deserved.

The video is as shocking as it is excruciating. All of a sudden, the Westchester socialist, who is famous for her Jerry the Mouse voice, starts talking like a black preacher.

“This is what organizing looks like. This is what building power looks like,” Ocasio-Crazy said with her affected cadence. “This is what changing the country looks like. It’s when we choose to show up and occupy the room and talk about the things that matter most, talking about our future.”

“Ain’t nothing wrong with that. There’s nothing wrong with working retail, folding clothes for other people to buy,” she continued. “There is nothing wrong with preparing the food that your neighbors will eat. There is nothing wrong with driving the buses that take your family to work”:

The moment is reminiscent of two-time presidential loser Hillary “Hot Sauce” Clinton’s similar attempt to condescend to a predominantly black audience with her “Ain’t No Ways Tired” remarks in 2007:

The Swedish Church Creates LGBTQ View of the Bible for Children, Identifies Jesus as ‘Queer’

SwedishChurch&Sexuality

One 5 April 2019 Christian Broadcasting Network article shows that one diocese of the Church of Sweden has published a guide stating that Christ was homosexual.

The Diocese of Västerås, a division of the Church of Sweden, is now giving away an LGBTQ guide for “Christian queer kids.” Bible-believing Christians may be stunned to hear that this extreme guide describes Jesus as “queer” and Joseph as transvestite.

No, this isn’t just some radical college course about the Bible. This is coming from the actual Church of Sweden.

The church, which identifies as Protestant, has created what it calls a “survival guide” for LGBTQ youth. A Swedish news site, Nya DagBladet, states the church’s guide contains definitions and concepts, a bit about the Bible and LGBTQ, as well as Bible stories that it claims are related to LGBTQ people.

The guide goes on to contradict Scripture by stating the Bible is actually not against homosexuality, implying scriptures dealing with it are actually about exploitation or rape. Click Here to see what the Bible actually says about homosexuality.

‘Hate-Filled, Anti-Christian, Anti-Conservative Organization’: Why the SPLC Has Been Given an ‘F’ by Charity Watch

SPLC-2

A 4 April 2019 article at the Christian Broadcasting Network points out the vehemence of the attacks by the SPLC.

More than 25 Christian and conservative leaders have signed a letter to the CEO’s of Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon, urging them to end any working relationships with the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The SPLC has notoriously listed Christian and conservative groups as hate groups.

“It is now clear that the SPLC has proven to be a hate-filled, anti-Christian, anti-conservative organization and nothing more than a weapon of the radical Left, whose goal is to bully people into compliance with their ideology,” the letter states. “Fail to comply with their demands, and you will be labeled as a hate group or an extremist.”

The Family Research Council is one group the SPLC has put in that hate group category for its Biblical beliefs and defense of traditional marriage. Others like the Alliance Defending Freedom and Prager University have also been targeted.

And this letter may be just the beginning of the SPLC’s worries. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) is calling on the IRS to investigate the non-profit and review its tax exempt status.

“They’ve really become kind of a hate group themselves,” Cotton told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. “Serial repeated defamation against what you see as a political opponent is not a tax exempt purpose.”

The SPLC has a reported $500 million in assets with a good chunk of that in offshore accounts.

When you also consider that the leadership of the SPLC left under the cloud of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism, you would not know it from the virtual silence among the mainstream media outlets.

Additionally, you would not know that the current leader of the SPLC (Tina Tchen) has close ties to the Obama administration — including Greg Craig — and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case). What do we here about this? Do we even hear crickets out of the media?

 

The Jussie Smollett case and all the players to be found

Prosecutors dismiss charges against Smollett, draw backlash

Charges_against_Jussie_Smollett_dropped1

The Associated Press reports in a 27 March 2019 article how the dismissal of charges has not been well received.

Infuriating Chicago’s mayor and police chief, prosecutors abruptly dropped all charges against Jussie Smollett on Tuesday after the “Empire” actor accused of faking a racist, anti-gay attack on himself agreed to let the city keep his $10,000 in bail. But he maintained his innocence and insisted he was attacked.

Prosecutors said they still believe Smollett concocted the assault. They gave no detailed explanation for why they abandoned the case only five weeks after filing the charges and threatening to pursue Smollett for the cost of a monthlong investigation.

The dismissal drew an immediate backlash. Mayor Rahm Emanuel called the deal “a whitewash of justice” and lashed out at Smollett for dragging the city’s reputation “through the mud” in a quest to advance his career. At one point he asked, “Is there no decency in this man?”

Smollett’s attorneys said his record was “wiped clean” of the 16 felony counts related to making a false report that he was assaulted by two men. The actor, who also agreed to do community service, insisted that he had “been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one.”

“I would not be my mother’s son if I was capable of one drop of what I was being accused of,” he told reporters after a court hearing. He thanked the state of Illinois “for attempting to do what’s right.”

In a statement, a spokeswoman for the Cook County prosecutors’ office said the dismissal came “after reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case.” Tandra Simonton called it “a just disposition and appropriate resolution” but said it was not an exoneration.

First Assistant State’s Attorney Joseph Magats said prosecutors “stand behind the investigation and the facts.”

When dropping cases, prosecutors will sometimes insist that the defendant accept at least a measure of responsibility. Outside court, neither Smollett nor his legal team appeared to concede anything about his original report in January.

Southern Poverty Law Center (where discrimination & sexual discrimination had occurred)

Turmoil roils Southern Poverty Law Center as president Richard Cohen resigns

cohen_

In a Washington Times article that most of us never saw, we find out about the departure of Richard Cohen, but not the racist actions and sexual abuse in the SPLC. Insanely, this press outlet continues to praise the SPLC in spite of the hypocritic abuse of minorities and women.

Southern Poverty Law Center president Richard Cohen announced his resignation Friday, a stunning departure that eradicates the top leadership of a civil-rights behemoth amid allegations of workplace discrimination and harassment.

Mr. Cohen, who joined the SPLC in 1986 and has served as president since 2003, said he wanted to “take responsibility” for the problems that have roiled the SPLC, culminating last week in the sudden exit of founder Morris Dees.

“Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them,” Mr. Cohen said in a statement obtained by the Montgomery [Alabama] Advertiser.

He also asked the board to “immediately launch a search for an interim president in order to give the organization the best chance to heal.”

The SPLC has hired Tina Tchen, former chief of staff to First Lady Michelle Obama, to conduct an internal review after the March 14 dismissal of Mr. Dees, who founded the group in 1971.

No reason was given for his exit, but the Alabama Political Reporter and Los Angeles Times reported it was spurred by allegations of sexual harassment and racial discrimination.

It stretches credulity to its limits to think that Cohen and Dees just decided to give up their racist and sexist ways and CAIR and Ms Tchen just fell into a lucky coincidence.

Watchdog group’s leader steps down after founder’s firing

Watchdog_Group_Firing

This time, it is the Apologetic Associated Press who partially reports on the departure of the founder of the SPLC. Oddly, they don’t mention the sexual oppression or the racial tirades for which Mr. Cohen was known. Neither does it mention the billions of dollars stashed in offshore accounts by Cohen and Dees.

The head of the Southern Poverty Law Center on Friday announced that he is stepping down, the latest high-profile departure from the watchdog organization best known for its work monitoring extremist groups.

Southern Poverty Law Center President Richard Cohen sent an email to staff saying that he would be stepping down from his leadership role at the organization. The organization last week fired founder and prominent civil rights attorney Morris Dees for unspecified reasons.

“Whatever problems exist at the SPLC happened on my watch, so I take responsibility for them,” Cohen wrote.

Cohen in October had approached the organization’s board about finding a “new generation” of leadership. He wrote Friday that he was stepping up that timeframe in light of recent events, and asked the organization’s board to immediately begin the search for an interim president “in order to give the organization the best chance to heal.”

He also asked his staff for patience as they bring in an outside party to review the organization’s workplace environment.

The SPLC did not elaborate on the reasons behind Dees’ termination. In a statement about Dees’ departure, Cohen only said the organization is “committed to ensuring that the conduct of our staff reflects the mission of the organization and the values we hope to instill in the world.”

With a CAIR-friendly woman at the helm of the SPLC, I will bet the organization will keep up its persecution of Christian churches and non-profits.

Organizations Still Discriminated Against by the SPLC

FBI Ties to Leftist Southern Poverty Law Center Casts Cloud over ‘Religious Liberty Task Force’

jeffsessions_si

In a 31 July 2018 Christian Broadcasting Network article, we are reminded of dubious connections between the SPLC and the FBI.

One day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the Justice Department is creating a “religious liberty task force,” some are concerned after the FBI admitted to working with the controversial Southern Poverty Law Center.

On Monday, Sessions explained the task force will help the DOJ fully implement the religious liberty guidance it issued last year.

“The task force will ensure all Justice Department components are upholding that guidance in the cases they bring and defend, the arguments they make in court, the policies and regulations they adopt, and how we conduct our operations,” he said.

D. James Kennedy Ministries Sues Southern Poverty Law Center Over ‘Hate’ Label

SPLC-KENNEDY

According to a 24 August 2017 Christian Broadcasting Network article shed light some time ago on the issue of the SPLC along with other powerful groups targeting churches and charitable organizations.

D. James Kennedy Ministries is standing up to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), filing a federal religious discrimination lawsuit against the media powerhouse for calling it a hate group.

The lawsuit says the SPLC “illegally trafficked in false and misleading descriptions of the services offered by DJKM and committed defamation against DJKM.”

It also contends that the SPLC published false information that has harmed the ministry’s reputation and subjected it to “disgrace, ridicule, odium and contempt in the estimation of the public.”

Conservatives call for companies to cut ties with ‘discredited’ Southern Poverty Law Center

carlson_perkins

Also, the Washington Times reports in a 20 June 2018 article that is only partially slanted in favor of the SPLC that some organizations have stood up the bully SPLC.

A coalition of 45 prominent conservative groups and figures called Wednesday on those partnering with the Southern Poverty Law Center to sever their ties, saying the center’s credibility has been further eroded by this week’s defamation settlement.

In a joint statement, organizations targeted by the SPLC as “extremists” or “hate groups” cited the center’s apology and $3.375 million payment to the Quilliam Foundation and founder Maajid Nawaz for including them in a 2016 guide to “anti-Muslim extremists.”

The settlement announced Monday comes as “tangible proof that the SPLC, which amounts to little more than a leftist instrument of political warfare against those with whom it disagrees, fully deserves the infamy which it has lately earned,” said the statement.

“[W]e call on government agencies, journalists, corporations, social media providers and web platforms (i.e., Google, Twitter, YouTube and Amazon) that have relied upon this discredited organization to disassociate themselves from the Southern Poverty Law Center and its ongoing effort to defame and vilify mainstream conservative organizations,” said the statement.

Signers included former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, American Values president Gary Bauer, Center for Security Policy founder Frank Gaffney, New Zealand author Trevor Loudon and ACT for America founder Brigitte Gabriel.

‘Who Is the Real Hate Group Here?’: Franklin Graham Unloads on Southern Poverty Law Center

franklingraham

We find out through a 31 August 2017 Christian Broadcasting Network article how Franklin Graham views the SPLC and its victims.

Evangelist Franklin Graham is speaking out against the Southern Poverty Law Center for labeling several Christian groups, like D. James Kennedy Ministries and the Family Research Council, “hate groups.”

“Why? Simply because they hold to the teaching of God’s Word on moral issues such as homosexuality and same-sex marriage,” Graham wrote on Facebook.

D. James Kennedy Ministries has filed a federal religious discrimination lawsuit against SPLC for calling it a hate group.

The son of evangelist Billy Graham also referenced author and activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali in his rebuke of SPLC.

“They (Southern Poverty Law Center) even speak disparagingly against Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a woman who was born into a Muslim family in Somalia and bravely speaks out against the dangers and oppression of women in Islam,” Graham wrote.

“Because she dares to speak against what Islam has done to her and other women, she is being accused of hate speech!” he continued.

George Soros funds SPLC and CAIR database

Soros Bankrolled Unverified ‘Hate Crime’ Database Used by Major Media Outlets

Soros

Washington Free Beacon shows us in a 27 March 2019 article how Soros bankrolled the “hate crime” database used by most newspapers and tv newsrooms.

Liberal billionaire George Soros bankrolled a massive “hate crime” database that is used by more than 100 media partners—including Google News Labs, New York Times Opinion, and ABC News—to report alleged hate crimes, according to tax documents and interviews.

The database, launched following the election of President Donald Trump, is “unverified” and receives stories of alleged “hate” from the likes of the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an organization currently in upheaval over charges of institutional racism perpetrated by its recently fired co-founder, Morris Dees, and the Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim civil rights group that was previously listed as an unindicted co-conspirator of terrorism.

Media partners involved in the initiative have access to the unverified database, and use it to report stories of hate in the Trump era.

ProPublica, an investigative reporting nonprofit based in New York City, launched the project, known as “Documenting Hate,” in 2017. The New York Times backed the project in January 2017 editorial, “Why We Need a Project to Document Hate Crimes.”

Smollett freed? Thank Obama fixer Tina Tchen

OneNewsNow reminds us in a 27 March 2019 article by Michelle Malkin how Democrat fixers work.

Two weeks ago, Chicago Sun-Times reporters discovered that Obama crony pal and deep-pocketed campaign finance mega-bundler Tina Tchen had inserted herself in the investigation.

How did hate crime huckster Jussie Smollett get away with it? All crooked roads in Chicago lead back to the Obamas.

On Tuesday, as part of a sealed deal, the Illinois state attorney’s office dismissed 16 felony charges brought by a grand jury against the Trump-hating actor, who blamed phantom white MAGA supporters for a brutal racist “assault” that left him with a teensy-weensy scratch under his eye. The day before the “attack,” Smollett’s two bodybuilding friends were caught on surveillance tape buying costumery (red hat, ski masks, bandanas, sunglasses and gloves) that just happened to match Smollett’s descriptions of what his still-fugitive assailants were wearing.

But I guess there’s no use crying over spilled bleach.

To atone for the-fakery-that-shall-not-be-named, Smollett performed 18 hours of “community service” with Jesse Jackson’s PUSH Coalition and forfeited his $10,000 bond.

Minority liberal race-hustling has its privileges.

And that brings us to the Democratic operatives behind the scenes. Two weeks ago, Chicago Sun-Times reporters discovered that Obama crony pal and deep-pocketed campaign finance mega-bundler Tina Tchen had inserted herself in the investigation. Tchen texted Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx just three days after the incident “on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know” to express “concerns.” She suggested that Foxx lean on Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to yield to the FBI and she shared an unidentified Smollett’s family member’s cellphone number with Foxx.

Obama Fixer

Southern Poverty Law Center Hires Obama’s Senior Advisor Who Fixed Jussie Smollett’s Hate Crime Hoax

Tina-Tchen-obama

In a 27 March 2019 report at the Geller Report, we find a lot of what went on with the Jussie Smollett case.

The Chicago PD is understandably furious over the announcement today that all charges would be dropped in the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax case.

The reasons given why were lame, and as a result the Fraternal Order of Police have amplified their call for the feds to investigate Cook County State’s Attorney General Kim Foxx’s handling of the case (bolded emphasis added):

In renewing the call for a federal investigation into what he called Foxx’s political “interference” on behalf of the Smollett family, [FOP second vice president Martin] Preib argued that the state’s attorney’s office’s decision to drop the charges “only gives more foundation to our claims.”

Foxx’s initial request that [Chicago Police Supt. Eddie] Johnson transfer the case to the FBI came after an influential supporter of the “Empire” actor reached out to Foxx personally: Tina Tchen, a Chicago attorney and former chief of staff for former first lady Michelle Obama, according to emails and text messages provided by Foxx to the Sun-Times in response to a public records request.
