Jackson is no better than Blago, Ryan, Walker, Rostenkowski and the many other thieves in government and that
Includes his wife. These people are the reason Crook County and Chicago are looked down on as a cesspool of
Corruption. Will they ever learn.
Jackson is no better than Blago, Ryan, Walker, Rostenkowski and the many other thieves in government including his wife. These thieves are the reason Crook County and Chicago are looked down on as a cesspool of corruption. Will they ever lean? The answer is no!
Plea bargain? Seems like an unseen hand (Chief Executive) is orchestrating a mere tap on the wrist for Jackson. There should be no plea bargain for this crook! The feds should dig deeper and gather more evidence. The taxpayers lose again! Seize all his assets!
In other words the jackson crime family will get off the hook again.
Wonder how may cell phone minutes senior used with his DC connections on this one.
Are you referring to a skirt chasing reverend without a church that was able to coerce his family into a liquor distributor company?
Are you kidding me! When will the government step up! The whole Fn world is going to hell! Makes me sick!
Бык дерьмо, He needs to do the max, as well as his wife. I for one am sick to death of this Special Treatment the Political Royalty gets in this country. They are criminals, just like illegals are illegal. Бык дерьмо. And Barry, stay out of this it does not concern you..
I don't understand why Jackson is being cosidered for a deal. Is it because he is black and Obama wants him protected as much as possible?

A federal judge sentenced former congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. to 30 months, or 2-and-a-half years, in prison for misuse of campaign funds.
His wife, former Chicago alderman Sandi Jackson, was sentenced to 12 months for tax fraud.
In late November 2012, Jackson Jr. resigned from his Illinois Congressional seat in the second district. In January, Sandi Jackson stepped down from her position at Chicago’s 7th Ward alderman.
Both pleaded guilty in February.
On October 29, Jesse Jackson Jr. entered a minimum security prison in North Carolina to begin serving his sentence.
