Even David Axelrod Gets It

Former Obama strategist David Axelrod hit it out of the park with these words:
Unless some better explanation surfaces, here's the lesson of the Smollett case. You can contrive a hate crime. make it national news, get caught, and if you are a well-connected celebrity, get off for $10K and have your record expunged and file sealed.
Hate crimes are loathsome. Faking them is insidious and shouldn't be excused. Despite Smollett's denials. nothing the prosecutor said in dismissing the case supports that. If prosecutors have evidence that contradicts the indictment THEY brought, they should share it today."
I never thought I'd be so firmly on the same page with David Axelrod but I am there...
