CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Former Chicago Ald. Bob Fioretti is ramping up his challenge of Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx's re-election campaign.

Fioretti is calling for the state's attorney to have her campaign chairwoman and treasurer resign after what he calls a "pattern of lawlessness and dishonesty."


The Democrat claimed cell phone video shows Nakia Gibson battered a man last week who was trying to serve her outside her Lansing home with a subpoena regarding another election case. 

Fioretti's campaign is challenging some of Foxx's 20,000 petition signatures claiming almost half are not valid and said Gibson lead that effort.

WBBM is waiting for a response from Foxx's campaign.

Fioretti is among three Democrats running against Foxx in the March 17 primary.  She also faces two Republican opponents.
