Sources tell FOX 32 News that Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is willing to give up his 2nd Congressional District seat if he's given disability when he steps down.
Jackson Jr. was re-elected to his tenth term but last month, sources say, he applied for a disability package--what could be his only income if he resigns. It is expected to take a couple of weeks for Congress to approve or deny the request.

I thought he had a beer distributorship ... or am i confusing him with someone else?
Just think - if he was able to purchase Bammer’s seat - all of this would be swept under the rug and he’d be cured of his depression!
He can’t be expected to work like a mere citizen.
It’s always and forever will be about
government handouts to destroy the
Newsweak was right:
“We’re all socialists now”
Like it or not.
Put the sleezy b**t*rd in jail where he belongs.
Another Jackson shake down. That apple didn’t fall far from the tree. He’ll be living large on the taxpayers’ dime for decades. Guess he wasn’t in Congress long enough to steal his “fair share”.
He only wants that which he promised his constituents. Somebody gotta pay!
just a little walkin’ around money to tie him over til he’s fully engaged in the fambly bidness
The guy just can’t imagine life without gubermint cheese.
Just another 47%er....
Typical drug-addled democrat pauppet blackman. Send him to Guam and let him tip the Island over dontchaknow.
The House should vote on whether or not to give Jackson disability pay.
I don’t understand. Does Congress offer special disability packages? I am certain this wackjob is eligible for SSI.
If he were to simply leave office at the age of 47, his max would be 34% of his high three ~ which might seem like a fair amount of money, but he's not going to be living in your better parts of Chicago in the future!
He can't draw regular retirement until he's 57 anyway.
He can apply like any other Civil Service worker. Congress should wash their hands clean of this lying, thieving SOB.
So that’s where his “depression” came from. If I had a federal indictment handing over my head I’d be depressed too.
If the republicans cave into to this crook and give him a FULL PENSION (same as his salary) wipe your hands clean of the entire Congress, because they are as corrupt as hell.
He wants his reparations!
His father doesn’t share his beer or his white bitches!
