Posted on 02/08/2013 9:44:37 AM PST by bigbob
Its been nearly three months since Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned from Congress, but now NBC News confirms that Jackson has signed papers in a plea deal within the past several days. Jacksons case is being handled by the US Attorneys office in Washington DC. While no public announcement is expected today, those with knowledge of the investigation believe the loose ends now deal with Jacksons wife, former Alderman Sandi Jackson, and whether or not she is ultimately charged. Under the terms of the deal Jackson signed, he pleads guilty and his fate as to jail time would be in the hands of a federal judge, not yet assigned. He would repay the government hundreds of thousands of dollars for items like the $40,000 Rolex watch, travel expenses for a woman he described as a social acquaintance and furniture purchased for his home. Converting campaign contributions for personal use is strictly prohibited by federal law. It opens Jackson up to not more than 5 years in prison.
Mmmmm....I wonder what party he’s from? It doesn’t say...
He won’t do one single day of jail time.
Repay the gov’t “hundreds of thousands of dollars”.
There is something wrong when a member of Congress acquires “hundreds of thousands of dollars” while in office.
Or when a President leaves office a millionaire.
Unless he entered office as a billionaire.
“He wont do one single day of jail time.”

Guaranteed! He will do no jail time or else he wouldn’t have signed it. If he doesn’t that proves there are ‘two Americas’ one for the politicians (& cronies) and one for the rest of us.
I’m to believe they found an even stupider Jesse Jackson? Astounding.
Political public servants should be term limited according to their net worth. Once they make their first million as a politician, they should be required to resign from government.
Of course not, that would be racist.
The most he’ll get is probation and a fine. If JJ Jr got even so much as one day in jail, his daddy would be all over that judge like Rosie O’Donnell on a toilet seat.
Of course not, that would be racist.
Will that be “Goodfella’s” prison time or “Office Space” prison time?
Daddy better get out there and shake down lots of companies in order to help JR. pay back the money.
Well there goes my lunch appetite, thanksalot.
Nearly every dmned one of the congresscritters is a crook or blackmailable. Washington is a cesspool. Democrats are the bottom feeders.
When you "drain the swamp" like Nancy did, that's all that's left
He spent campaign funds for a $40,000 Rolex watch. That is something that a pimp like him needs. I wonder if he has a red Cadillac Eldorado with white interior and wire wheels.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! As we chronicled in the documentary, HILLARY! UNCENSORED, the witch committed the biggest campaign finance fraud in history, illegally directed in kind contributions of 1.5 mil, made four false reports to the FEC, lied in a sworn affadavit, and all that happened was the campaign was fined 35K.
"Seerously, when my son and Barack do that naked, oiled up gladiator thing in the White House pool, you thinkin' dayam, look jus' like transistorized Woody Strode and Grace Jones in Sparticus"
Jesse Jr. got a bad case of the sadz when he learned the feds were probing him. Query whether he in fact gets any prison time.

While pointing out that Jackson, Jr. was one who is this good, there was no mention of his 2010 affair scandal with Peruvian nightclub hostess Giovana Huidobro, which Jackson said is a private and personal matter between me and my wife. Something the media has had absolutely no curiosity about."
I wonder if that's still under investigation.
In other words, Jesse Jackson Jr. is a free man !
Nope. Those in the "club" ALWAYS protect their own.
I was hoping he can at least milk the cows at Lompoc for a year or two, maybe pick daisies in a Colorado fed garden, might help mellow him out a bit.. his family deserve their own prison suite , including Je$$e Sr.
Funny, she doesn’t look Peruvian.
IF King Obama ever leaves, Junior will be one of the names on the pardon list.
Under the bus you go, Je$$e Jack$$on Junior.
I wonder if this has anything to do with his father threatening to tear the king’s family jewels from his royal body?
Say the magic word and the duck will come down. That duck has never been seen in liberal lapdog media.
Giovana Huidobro is definitely NOT GUILTY!
All this means is the scandal is waaay larger, and the investigation was getting too close to the truth.
Little jackson was told to fall under the bus to cut
their losses. Democrats only admit guilt to prevent bigger democraps from getting caught.
To bad this class act was caught early. He would have made a great DEMOCRATIC SENATOR. I can hear the consulting that went on between them for 5k per month. Honey, do we have anymore Chrystal Champaign. Yes dear.
“...HILLARY! UNCENSORED, the witch committed the biggest campaign finance fraud in history,... and all that happened was the campaign was fined 35K.”
And that was probably considered severe.
If Jesse Jackson, Sr. had a son he’d look just like Jesse Jackson, Jr.
I don't think I've ever replied to you before, but let me just say I hate you.
I did NOT need that mental image.
Where's the brain bleach?
It would be interesting to track the net worth of those in Congress - from their first day in office to about 2 years after they leave office. I believe that deals are made with ‘stuff’ coming due after they leave office.
Do not fear. Actual images provided here:
I wish we had twitter and Facebook like features so I could easily put this comment up on both of my accounts.
Nevertheless, the scramble is on to make sure the “right” federal judge is assigned to the case. Like one who previously defended the Rainbow Coalition when they were an Attorney (or some similar set of corrupt circumstances that present a clear conflict of interest).
The more we hear about this, the more I suspect that Jackson’s “clinical depression” was just a ruse to escape (or at least delay and mitigate) prosecution.
Pardon is only granted after the time has been served for a federal sentence. Obama could not grant him a pardon, because whether he serves time or not, the time served with the sentence must be expired before a pardon can be granted. Obama will not be in after the 5 years. ( I could be wrong about the pardon time served, but generally that is how it has been done.)
Like father, like son? Think about it, won’t you?
Yes it looks as if he is but now the question is whether or not his wife (an alderman?) will join him.
Or the Senate Majority leader entering the Senate as a pauper and now a multi-millionaire.
Whenever these crooks are ordered to pay a fine I always wonder where the money comes from.
