ILGOP Statement on Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s Decision Not to Seek Re-Election (Chicago, IL) – Earlier today, Cook County State’s Attorney’s Kim Foxx announced at the Chicago City Club that she is not seeking re-election. This comes as no surprise to those who have closely followed her two terms in office.
“It’s clear that Kim Foxx sees the writing on the wall and is not seeking re-election because she failed in every aspect as State’s Attorney. Cook County residents are sick and tired of watching her abdicate her basic responsibility to simply enforce the laws on the books and keep violent criminals off the streets,” said Illinois Republican Party Chairman Don Tracy.
“There’s one thing that Republicans, Democrats and Independent voters can all agree on – her last day can’t come soon enough,” added Chairman Tracy. 0.
Under Kim Foxx’s tenure, we’ve seen the highest number of Assistant State’s Attorney resignations in a decade, a record number of felony cases dropped – including the high-profile Jussie Smolett case – and her adamant refusal to prosecute criminals and promote accountability.
