Where is Jesse Jackson Jr.?

By Claudine Zap
September 2,2012

His name is on the ballot. But Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. hasn't made a campaign appearance since the primary.

The Democratic congressman from Chicago is running for re-election for his seat in the House of Representatives, but has been out of sight for the last three months, being treated for bipolar disorder.

Campaign advisers told the New York Times, which noted that the campaign's office was locked shut, that the candidate is waiting for the doctor's approval to campaign again.

The son of Rev. Jesse Jackson was expected to win the election easily, but the Washington Post reports he is trying voters' patience while he remains a patient.

Jackson has been in treatment since June. His wife, Chicago Alderman Sandi Jackson, said she won't replace the 47-year-old.

The Republican opponent, Brian Woodworth, thinks he has a valid argument for voting for him, even in the South Side, a strongly Democratic district. He told the Washington Post, "Voters should be paying attention to this," Woodworth said, adding, "For the last three months, almost four, he's ignored them. He's hidden from the press. He's ignored the people. He's neglected his job."

If Jackson decides he's not running, replacing him at this late date would be a messy process, since his name is printed on the ballot, which has already gone to troops overseas. Most likely a court would have to decide whether the votes for him would go toward the replacement or be thrown out.

The Jacksons recently put up their $2.5 million Washington, D.C., home for sale, to help pay medical bills, they said. The family has a house in Chicago too.

Where he belongs, I hope.
Permanently in the nut house.

(No, not the Capitol; the official nut house.)

Still, he’s probably a lock considering party affiliation and location.

Who cares? He was corrupted by his father and paid the price.

Jesse Jackson Jr. has passed away and is now a “good” Donkey. Now, as a zombie, he will be reelected in a landslide in his Chicago district. His ghost will be sworn in with the rest of Congress in January where he will continue voting Donkey and attending CBC meetings as their zombie representative.

It matters little. Speaker Madigan will hand-pick JJJ’s replacement, and the Ill-Annoy way of doing things will continue rolling along. Move along, nothing to see here.

Well, I know damned well what the choir is singing on this one...so I'll join in:

Who the hell cares where the race-baiting, corrupt, low-life piece of crap is?

Sleeping with the fishies, if we're lucky.

But really...why would anyone care where he or his worthless father is?

May they both rot in hell.

I wonder if he’s just locked up in the asylum, whether due to addiction or mental illness or incompetence. And the Democrats are hoping he’ll get elected. Then they’ll auction off his seat or give it to a crony, saying he’s no longer able to serve.

>>> "Where is Jesse Jackson Jr.?" <<<

That's one of the most stupid questions I ever heard. Where else would someone named Jesse Jackson be (whether Jr or Sr) ??

Either:

(1)In consultation with his DEFENSE attorney.

(2) Making the rounds of Fortune 500 board rooms threatening them with boycotts and lawsuits if they don't make million dollar "donations" to the Rainbow Coalition , the NAACP and his personal retirement fund.

(3) Down in the Bahama's inventorying all of his offshore accounts.

OR

Hanging out in juke joints around 63rd and Stoney on the South Side drinking .45 and Ripple, and knocking up a few ho's.

Why would he bother to campaign? The real race was the Dem primaries. The actual election is a cake walk.
