BOB FIORETTI STATEMENT ON CONWAY DECEPTIVE MAILERS
During this campaign, I have promised that as state’s attorney I will hold people accountable whether they are accused of carjacking or even if they cross the legal line in a civil matter. That accountability begins now.
Today, I’m holding Bill Conway accountable for demonstrably false libelous mailings sent to voters in what appears to be an attempt to defame me and my record.
Bill Conway promised a “new way”. Turns out the new way is the same as the old way.

Fioretti Calls On Kim Foxx To Resign Over New Jussie Smollett indictment
Smollett case corruption ‘the tip of the iceberg’ of problems in her office
Cook County State’s Attorney candidate Bob Fioretti called for the resignation of incumbent Kim Foxx after Special Prosecutor Dan Webb re-indicted Jussie Smollett on six new charges Tuesday. He said it is time to restore trust and integrity to the office.
Foxx’s office originally charged the former Empire Star with sixteen felony counts for allegedly faking a hate crime. A few short weeks later, Foxx’s office dropped all sixteen charges without getting a guilty plea from Smollett. Foxx announced she would recuse herself from the case, but did not... read more

Fioretti Calls For Special Prosecutor To Investigate Kim Foxx Petition Fraud
In new development, Foxx Chairman commits battery evades the law
Cook County State’s Attorney candidate Bob Fioretti called for the appointment of a Special Prosecutor to investigate the massive election fraud found on State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s nominating petitions.
“The Board of Elections ruled almost half of Kim Foxx’s filed signatures to be invalid, including thousands to be ‘not genuine’ which is code for ‘forged,’” Fioretti said. “It is obvious Kim Foxx can’t investigate herself, so it’s time for a second Special Prosecutor to investigate her.” read more

Facing three challengers in her bid for re-election, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx first will have to survive a challenge to her nominating petitions to stay on the ballot.

"Kim Foxx is Woefully Short on Petition Signatures"
Fioretti To File Challenge to Foxx Petitions
December 9, 2019 For more information
For immediate release Contact Nathaniel Holcomb 773-383-2164
Cook County State’s Attorney candidate Bob Fioretti filed a challenge to the nominating petition of incumbent Kim Foxx.
“Kim Foxx is woefully short of the number of signatures needed to be on the ballot in March,” Fioretti said. “The amount of fraud on the petitions put forth by Foxx and her corrupt political boss Toni Preckwinkle on behalf of the machine is appalling.”
Fioretti’s campaign filed nearly 10,000 more signatures than the Democratic machine submitted for Foxx and Circuit Court Clerk candidate Mike Cabonargi. “How far the machine has fallen when they can’t submit valid petitions to get their candidates on the ballot.”
Fioretti, a two term Alderman, is confident his challenge will be successful and Foxx will be removed from the ballot. “Since she took office, Kim Foxx has given the back of her hand to the law, whether it is the Smollet case, unilaterally ignoring an entire class of shoplifting felonies, and now the simple election requirements to get on the ballot for re-election.”
“When all is said and done, a real investigation ought to take place to determine how a State’s Attorney could submit so many fraudulent petitions.”
Bob Fioretti enters race to oust beleaguered States Attorney Kim Foxx - Suburban Chicago
Robert “Bob” Fioretti announced Monday his candidacy to challenge controversy-plagued Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx for the office in the March 17, 2020 Democratic Primary election. Foxx is best known for bending to political favors to drop charges in the Jussie Smollett hoax, embarrassing the Chicago Police Department (worse than Police Chief Eddie Johnson has done). Foxx has also declined to prosecute individuals involved in retail theft of major businesses whose crimes are under $1,000...
Fioretti announces candidacy for Cook County State's Attorney.
Former Independent Alderman Bob Fioretti announced his candidacy for Cook County State’s Attorney this morning declaring that incumbent Kim Foxx “is in way over her head” and that he is the only candidate in the race with the experience-governmental, private sector and political to make the changes necessary.
Fioretti touched on the Jussie Smollet scandal saying Foxx’s handling of the case “is reason enough to vote her out of office. She made Cook County the laughingstock of the world. But its only the tip of the iceberg.”
The long time civil rights attorney said the people of Cook County are less safe due to Foxx’s policies of “coddling of violent criminals, shoplifting felons, and campaign contributors show a jarring and unacceptable disrespect for victims, business owners, taxpayers and police officers who put their lives on the line to make us safer every single day.”
Fioretti noted that as Alderman he took a comprehensive approach to fighting crime in his ward. In addition to his strong support of law enforcement, Fioretti said he created more than 8,000 jobs and fought for good schools in every part of the city. He was also the loudest and most vocal critic against closing both the city’s mental health clinics and the more than 50 schools Mayor Rahm Emanuel closed at the same time.
Studies by former Alderman Dick Simpson and others have shown that Fioretti was the most independent Alderman during his time on the Council. Fioretti said he would conduct himself the same way as State’s Attorney “No phone call from anyone-no matter how important or powerful, and no campaign contribution will affect any decision I make.”
Fioretti said if elected he will restore “the dignity of the office” after Foxx's mishandling of the Smollet case.
More than 28,000 petition signatures will be filed on behalf of Fioretti’s campaign today. The primary election is March 17th, 2020.
When I’m Mayor, I will begin on day one a process that I believe will undo the Daley parking meter deal-the biggest man-made disasters to hit our city since the Chicago Fire.
The Daley family personally pocketed millions of dollars as a direct result of selling Chicago down the river for 75 years in the parking meter deal. This may not be criminal, but it is shameful and wrong.
Mayors Daley and Emanuel made the wrong choice and chose Wall Street. When I’m Mayor I’ll choose to fight for the taxpayers
Grateful beyond words for the support and friendship of Buddy Guy and Bobby Rush and the 300+ guests who came out last night. We all want the same thing, a mayor who works for the people of Chicago. Mancow Muller rocked it as MC.
Because of his long list of lobbying clients, Gery Chico recused himself more than 500 times as President of the School Board. How can someone with so many conflicts of interest even be Mayor of the City of Chicago?
Humbled by the support of Bobby Rush on 'Report To The People'
I’m humbled and honored by the support of my dear friend, bluesman Bobby Rush, for Mayor of Chicago 2019. In January, Bobby and I met up with Geri Patterson of Report To The People at Buddy Guy's Legends. Watch the full interview.
I’m humbled and honored by the support of my long-time friend Grammy Award winning legend Buddy Guy. He is the epitome of what is great about Chicago. His story is Chicago’s story. Born to a sharecropper’s family and raised in Louisiana, Buddy Guy came to Chicago with little more than a dream and a work ethic, similar to many Chicagoans, including my immigrant father. He became a legend through hard work and amazing talent. There is only one Buddy Guy, but when I’m Mayor, I’ll do my best to make Buddy Guy’s story one that embodies our city. In our Chicago, we treat everyone equally, regardless of who you are, where you came from, or what you look like. Using Buddy Guy as a beacon, we must give everyone a chance to achieve greatness and become a legend in their own way.
