Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned his seat in Congress on Wednesday, acknowledging an ongoing federal investigation into his campaign funds and expressing a desire to be remembered for what he "did right."
Text from Jackson's resignation letter, submitted on Wednesday to House Speaker John Boehner:
During this journey I have made my share of mistakes. I am aware of the ongoing federal investigation into my activities and I am doing my best to address the situation responsibly, cooperate with the investigators, and accept responsibility for my mistakes, for they are my mistakes and mine alone. None of us is immune from our share of shortcomings or human frailties and I pray that I will be remembered for what I did right.

I see another Obama Executive Order being issued to take care of Jackson.
He resigned alright. Just before he gets thrown in jail.
Just another friggin MARXIST LIBERAL that needs to be hung out to dry for the buzzards.
Plea deal, rehab, pardon, reelection. May take a few years to reach the end of that series.
May he rest in pieces.
Can just anyone buy his seat?
This says a lot about the intelligence of the voters who re-elected him.
What would that be?
“None of us is immune from our share of shortcomings or human frailties and I pray that I will be remembered for what I did right”
I guess he is telling us, “there go you, but for the grace of God” My frailties do not include stealing from others.
That’s ok, they’ll take him back any time, even if he commits mass murder on live tv.
What would happen to the serfs if something like this went down for us??
How is resigning an amnesty? At the best, he should be HOUNDED for the charges while on the People’s business.
Rhetorical, ‘cuz I KNOW the GOP wouldn’t do squat anyway; being all *RACIST* and all
Next Mayor of Washington DC?
I feel so sorry for Jesse Jackson Jr. that...guffaw...that...oh, come on, now! Horse laugh. Bronx cheer.
Somewhere in there did he utter the words “pardon me?”
Peal back the curtain on this twit, and you will find his wife. She wants to keep living large.
Preserving his taxpayer-funded pension.
If they ever want to do a remake of One Flew Over the Cukoos Nest, I think they have a real life candidate to play Nicholson’s role.
Accept that Nicholson’s character was faking it. JJJ is more like then Danny Devito patient.
Are you sure he is not faking it? I’d bet this mental problem has been a ruse the whole time once he knew the heat was on.
I just want to scream, Didn’t he win re election? No, I do not want to read article! Good lord we are screwed, how bad was it that he actually steps down..but remember he “did lots of good things”.
Since he did nothing “right”, good bye...time to take out the trash!
Of course, his replacement will be handpicked by the little dictator.
and the dumb idiots stil voted for him.
Maybe it’s time for maybe 5 questions to be asked and answered correctly on the issues before being allowed to vote.
Why should these dumb idiots have a say how my family has to live or what laws are being made up?
The majority of Dem voters are just plain dumb, when I see an obama sticker I think what a dummy, get a brain
Maybe he’ll be ordained into The Church of What’s Happenin’ Now. You know, so all the mediots can deferentially call him “Reverend.”
"I'm taking my 40 acres and a mule, and I'm going home!"
Hmmmmm - seriously, you raise a good point. Corned rats will do whatever they need to, and I would imagine he had few other options. Good thinking.
bidding restricted to select clientele only..
For what he “did right?”
Shouldn’t that be for what he “did left?”
this apology sounds more like a ‘suicide’letter.
“and the dumb idiots stil voted for him.”
He will re-elected anyway.
Yet the people that reelected him overwhelmingly still remain.
He still gets his big pension and free health care for the rest of his life!
Next Mayor of Washington DC?
