Kim Foxx's chief ethics officer, integrity unit director resign following Smollett controversy

Friday 23:38 GMT

Two ranking executives inside the Cook County State’s Attorney's Office have submitted their resignations — including State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s chief ethics officer, April Perry, whom Foxx cited as the person who advised her to “recuse” herself from the Jussie Smollett case that has rocked the Chicago office, Fox News learned Thursday.

STATE'S ATTORNEY KIM FOXX REPORTEDLY CALLS JUSSIE SMOLLETT 'WASHED UP CELEB WHO LIED TO COPS' IN TEXT MESSAGE. Last February, during the height of the investigation into Smollett’s claim that he was a victim of a hate crime, the state's attorney's office released a statement saying Foxx recused herself from investigating Smollett "out of an abundance of caution" because Foxx had discussed the case with a Smollett family member. "Shortly after the incident occurred in late January, State’s Attorney Foxx had conversations with a family member of Jussie Smollett about the incident and their concerns, and facilitated a connection to the Chicago Police Department who were investigating the incident," a statement from the office read.

Today 06:04 GMT

The deputy mayor of Adolf Hitler’s home town has resigned after publishing a poem about immigration whose imagery was described by Austria’s chancellor as “disgusting, inhuman and deeply racist”.

Christian Schilcher, the deputy mayor of Branau am Inn, published his poem in the Easter edition of a local newspaper affiliated to his far-right Freedom party. The poem, Die Stadtratte (Nagetier mit Kanalisationshintergrund), roughly translates as The City Rat (Rodent that Comes from the Sewer).
