Gotta love the Chicago machine

It is amazing what kind of candidates the Dems are putting forward. Also note that in the article Jesse Jackson jr may have abdicated because of an FBI investigation.

While serving time he was convicted on capaign fraud and other finance charges.
Also note,Bill Clinton commuted Reynolds sentence to time served. Honor among thieves as they say.

Since they went after Romney on things that happened in High School I am sure the press will hold this mans feet to the fire,or plead to give him a second chance.

i think they should have kept JJ.  they re-elected him.  they deserve what they chose.  if they elect this guy, they deserve that too.  i am pretty much tired of listening to these poor people whine about what happens around them when this is the trash THEY put in office.

From the web today:
"Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife Sandi intend to plead guilty to federal charges alleging the former congressman misused $750,000 in campaign funds while she understated their income on tax returns for six years, their lawyers say.
 
Jackson Jr., 47, a Democrat from Chicago, was charged in a criminal information today with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, mail fraud and false statements. He faces up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000 and other penalties.
 
Sandi Jackson was charged with one count of filing false tax returns. She faces up to three years in prison, a fine of up to $100,000 and other penalties.
 
Jackson Jr. is accused of diverting $750,000 in campaign funds for personal use.
 
Federal authorities allege that Jackson Jr. used campaign funds to purchase a $43,350 men's gold-plated Rolex watch, $5,150 worth of fur capes and parkas, and $9,588 in children's furniture. The purchases were made between 2007 and 2009, according to the criminal information, which authorities noted is not evidence of guilt."
