    OMFG! This is such BS! Probably trying to collect his almost 9,000.00 a month disability check. This is such a sham.

    Someone probably paid the Judge off no doubt like his daddy or Mr. Al Sharpton.

    Another political joke…..ALL these people involved should be fired.
    If this involved a taxpayer….like you and me…..they'd throw away the key…..

    Why should he get UP TO 4 years and got $750,000 and Blago gets 14 years and didn't get a penny? I agree, something's cooking. They are going to blame the disease (?). What about her…she's guilty as heck too. 18 mos? Seriously?

    Maybe he can get a "Prez" pardon. How about some time in Pontiac?

    Well I guess Jesse Sr is using his clout to help find a country club of major resort for the time that Jesse Jr and his wife will stay. If it was us we would be locked, shipped, and dumped in the system already. Get ready Chicago, wait till we see the time and location the Jackson's will be assigned.
