Feds ‘going down every rat hole’ in Jesse Jackson Jr. probe: source
BY NATASHA KORECKI Political Reporter

**SNIP**

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 congressman’s 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.

**SNIP**

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.

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 Obama’s 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.

“We’re happy and full of pride,” in the president’s 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. “What’s good for us is good for everybody. What’s 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 don’t 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, “It’s 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, we’d 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, “we’re 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?

“It’s time to sing a new song, of joy and hope,” Jackson said. “It’s time to march again. March for healthcare, march for jobs. When we march great things come our way. “

The Teflon defense, look the other way he's black, welcome! social justice where the color of your skin gets you a “get out of jail free” card. Oh it may look serious according to the investigation the reporting the coverups but you and I can bet that the ol slap on the wrist is the end result and another term to continue his good work for “the people” Remember it was reported that he was missing, then sick, then suffering from bipolar, then being treated in a mental institution, all a well known tactic of theater to show he is the victim in all of this and inspite of all the missing money, affairs, payoffs and bribes he still is a man who works for "the people" that will set him free

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.

(Sniffle) It's nice to know Chicago is going all out for it's favorite son (sob):

==============================================

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.

This is Obama’s Justice Department. He must have somehow offended The One at some point. Or knows something.

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."

Uh, oh.

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.

Word is that JJJ's copious Cong "earmarks" mysteriously found their way into Ald. Sandi's campaign coffers.

I hope she gets nailed with her “bi-polar Bob” husband. Prosecute and jail therm.

On the positive side, JJ2 cannot vote from the loony bin. The Dems are missing his vote in The House

"I am in deep trouble with the feds – which will force me to resign and forfeit my pension."

Oops---I read that too fast---thought JJJ said he was gonna hafta "forfeit his penis" (chuckle).

I guess Sandi must be sick and tired of hearing JJJ's braggadaccio about his size.

JJJ could be gettin' penis reduction surgery at Mayo (cackle).

I think they should get a big return - all the way back to Africa. I'll even donate.
