Feds going down every rat hole in Jesse Jackson Jr. probe: source

Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed reported last week that Jackson is in the midst of plea discussions. No one has pled guilty, but plea discussions are ongoing, a source told Sneed.
Meanwhile, investigators are also examining what role the congressmans wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th), played in the finances, but the source described the inquiry into her so far as a normal part of investigating a main target.
Jackson was temporarily back in Washington last month when he was spotted at a nightclub drinking with other women. He returned to the Mayo Clinic but was again released, the facility said Tuesday.

He wouldn't be his daddy's son if he didn't!
And the Marion Barry result - he gets re-elected.
I guess the Twinkie’ defense won’t be used, since Hostess is out of business.
I think they are going after the Congressmen, just because he is black. This is racist for sure, and probably the search will find that George W. Bush is to blame. I can´t see it any other way. All roads lead to George W. Bush, he messed everything up, and caused this bipolar in Jackson. If Bush had of done more in health care, Jackson would be well today.......
Rev Jesse Jackson: Black Voters Deserve A Return On Election Investment
WBBM-AM ^ | November 10, 2012 / FR Posted by 2ndDivisionVet
The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Saturday said that President Obamas reelection was a great victory, but that it would be incomplete with a reconstruction of urban America and an investment in the communities where the blacks who voted overwhelmingly for the president live.
Were happy and full of pride, in the presidents reelection, Jackson told the crowd at the Saturday morning forum at Rainbow/PUSH headquarters, 930 E. 50th St., but our houses remain raggedy our schools remain closed.
Despite attempts at voter suppression in states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, Jackson said, blacks turned out en masse to vote, enduring waits that stretched into hours in many places. We waited, we voted, we believed, Jackson said. Now we want to get well.
We voted early, we voted long. Our votes won, he said. Rev. Jackson, who spoke longer, louder, and more forcefully than he has in some time at the Saturday morning Rainbow/PUSH meeting, asked the crowd, What do we want? We want, we want, we want, we deserve, we deserve a return on our investment. Whats good for us is good for everybody. Whats good for blacks is good for everybody, he said. We bled too much, we died too young, we cried too much, we prayed too long, now we want a return on our investment.
Referring to those voter suppression efforts, he said, these acts of meanness had unintended consequences. Rather than keeping blacks and Latinos away from the polls, voter ID measures and the curtailing of access to the voting booths made people more determined to vote. Suppression became stimulation and people fought back, he said.
We fought back, and the battle was won, but the war still remains, he said. If we vote and dont bargain we get nothing. A Jacuzzi filled with stagnant water will not get you well, Jackson said. You have to stir the water. Jackson said blacks, who voted for Barack Obama for state senator, for U.S. Senator, and now twice as President of the United States, should demand, bargain, and march if necessary, for an end to patterns of race discrimination, (for) our share of jobs. We want faster public transportation to connect us to where the jobs are.
He said black American also needs access to capital, noting, Its cruel to say. jump in the pool, when there is no water.
He also called for fair trade, a domestic trade zone. We need a domestic OPEC, he said. In Chicago, for example, there are 100,000 vacant homes or abandoned lots; 40,000 in Baltimore. If we were to rebuild 25 percent, if we take down the boards and put in window panes, fix the broken sidewalks, cut the grass, fix the roofing, wed create more jobs than there are people, just rebuilding where we live.
Jackson said, there must be a plan for reconstruction of urban America. Saying that automobile companies and banks got bailouts, were the people who provided the votes we want to be bailed out. We need jobs, education, healthcare now. If we can be targeted for voter registration and voter turnout, target us for reconstruction, now.
We are the new mainstream, Jackson said. We are the America of shared hopes and shared dreams. We have the power, we have the votes. We waited, we voted, we believed, now we want to get well. He then asked the crowd, Do you want to get well? Are you willing to fight to get well?
Its time to sing a new song, of joy and hope, Jackson said. Its time to march again. March for healthcare, march for jobs. When we march great things come our way.
It’s an interesting episode. He wants medical retirement...on bi-polar reasons. The FBI has nothing to do with medical retirement and are continuing their entire case...with no work toward a deal which involves medical retirement. Jr hasn’t figured this out yet....but they can put you into prison...even if you are bi-polar. As for the folks around him who were getting favors? They are on the hook now with the Feds.
Just in case anyone missed it -
O's ex-COS, CHI/MAYOR RAHM did a graceful plie and
explained CHICAGO's tolerant and compassionate values.
We're bringing fried chicken and watermelon salsa to Jesse Jr,
convalescing at Mayo b/c he screwed up buying Obama's Senate seat.
We know for sure he is is his mother’s son. Absent DNA evidence, We can’t be certain he is his father’s son. He is from the village you know
This is Obama’s Justice Department. He must have somehow offended The One at some point. Or knows something.
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."
Amazing that he’s out DRINKING with some broad while on medication. Outpatient crazies don’t need or should have alcohol . Women, well that’s different.
My thought exactly.
Chicago Will Hear From Jackson Jr. at "Appropriate Time"
His wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson, has been an increasing no-show at city council meetings after the Wall Street Journal reported she may be included in the investigation of Jackson Jr. for misuse of campaign funds. Jackson allegedly used the money to redecorate the couple's Washington D.C. home.
