Blagojevich’s brother: Jackson Jr. still hasn’t come clean

In two days, former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. will learn how long he’ll spend in prison for stealing from his campaign fund.

But, the brother of former Governor Rod Blagojevich says Jackson still hasn’t come clean about his role in trying to buy a U.S. Senate seat.

Robert Blagojevich says two men approached him on Jackson’s behalf, and offered to raise a lot of campaign cash if the governor appointed Jackson to the Senate.

Robert Blagojevich says Jackson still needs to be held accountable for the bribery attempt.

Jackson maintains he never sent anyone to offer a bribe.

    You know, it's like Chicago thrives on corruption. Like if we didn't have it, the city would collapse.

    Does anyone think that either Jr. or his wife has been up front about the mess that they created? These are people that think they can say what they want and not be held accountable. Chicago and Illinois politics haven't changed and never will.
