" We're bringing fried chicken and watermelon salsa to Jesse Jr,
convalescing at Mayo b/c he screwed up buying Obama's Senate seat."
Other than robo-calls----JJJ did not campaign but still paid his wife Chicago Alderman Sandi Jackson (who lives in DC)---and her political consulting firm---- $5000.00 per month the last four months.
JJJ's "campaign" expenses since 2011 show he's spent $1 million, about the same as Rep. Biggert's $1.1 million and Rep. Dold's $1.6 million, in competitive races.....well above the roughly $300,000 each other Reps spent in two years.
"I'm only human but my wife---she's a frickin' *itch."
"She da one puttin' me away at dat dang Mayo place."
"She's *issed off cause I'm gettin' it on the side while
makin' like I was sickly. Dam *itch wants me outta da way."
As everyone who grew in in Chicago knows, this is politics, the Chicago Way.The Democratic Machine has long perfected the art of taking care of its own. You know, like giving Michelle Obama a high paying no-show job that was not needed after she went to DC, like Tony Reszko (Syrian swindler) buying the parcel adjoining Obamas house in Hyde Park and donating it to him. Some might call that bribery.......but it is legal in Chicago).
You could be a diehard Republican and vote that way your whole life---but once you're dead in Chicage you vote the straight Dem ticket.
Multiply this case by the number of people in the Congressional Black Caucus.
