Jesse Jackson Jr. charged with misusing $750,000 in campaign funds
NBC News ^ | Feb.15, 2013 | Ward Room staff, NBCChicago.com

Federal officials filed charges Friday against Jesse Jackson Jr. after the former congressman reportedly signed a plea deal for allegedly improperly spending hundreds of thousands in campaign funds.

The paperwork was filed at the U.S District Courthouse in Washington. Jackson, who left the public eye last summer for treatment of bi-polar disorder and resigned from office in November, is not expected to make an appearance, but he offered a response in his first statement to the public in months.

Since there’s no parole in the Federal system anymore, he should serve about 80% of his sentence, which will be 3-4 years.

What happened to the money? My guess is he’s grafted much more than this over the years, as he grew up with an expert at doing things like this.

This effing thief is cut from the same cloth as his racist, race baiting shakedown artist father. The bi-polar thing was just a stupid left wing ploy for sympathy. I would would pull the gallows lever on this corrupt mother phucker...

Junior watched his father scam the system for years.

It looked so easy he thought he could get away with it too.

It turns out that Junior is just as slimy as his father but he isn’t half as good at covering up his stealing and scamming.

Given how corrupt the Illegal, Moochelle, and all their accomplices are, there’s got to be a really good back story about the genuine motivation for the prosecution of JJJr & his wife.

He should have called the Just-Us Brothers for legal counsel.

Sounds like a message to JJ Sr.

Sr. wanted to do something to Gaybama’s nuts.

Must have been an insult in Chicagoland.

$750,000 is small potatoes in Chi-Town.

Who gets the A-B beer distributorship?

Lost by “moral turpitude”?

It's surprising that the bastard is not blaming “the other me” for the crime. He is a criminal, period. He should be sentenced as any other crook would be for stealing money.
Grand Theft!

The “bi-polar” deal was a preliminary tactic, knowing that he was had for his crimes.

We would be better off without him and his father.

Why a rich man would steal money and destroy himself to acquire that kinid of trash is beyond me, unless he, himself, is also trash, which he and his father are.


His depression made him do it...

I think Obama is sending a message to everyone who may have anything on him or Michelle. He will take you or your family down if you cross him.

I think you have nailed it. This is going on across the entire political spectrum right now.

What we are not realizing is that Obama, seemingly at his highest point, is actually at a weak point.

There seems to be a general awakening, very slowly, due to the gun issue and the general continuous failure of the economy and O's inability to lead that is becoming undeniable.

Being AWOL the night of Benghazi is huge on many levels, and it is up to us to get the word out.

This crack in the wall needs to be exploited for all it's worth. Our future depends on it.

All of that raises the question, “Who did he PO and why?”


It looks like everyone involved in the scandal to sell Obama’s senate seat, who wasn’t in Obama’s camp, such as Jarrett and Donnelly, is either in jail or going there.

Blago’s in jail. Raghuveer Nayak, who raised the money for Jessie to buy the seat, testified against Blago and helped send him to jail in exchange for immunity. However, the Feds got around that by charging him on unrelated tax evasion and mail fraud charges a couple years later. Now, they’ve found some other stuff to charge JJJ with to tie up that loose end.

So, I think it all goes back to that. Obama holds a grudge that the incompetent branch of the Chicago political mob got themselves caught trying to sell HIS seat when they should have known that Blagojevich was under surveillance. They dragged his name into the scandal, and endangered some of his close associates by getting caught talking about negotiations with them on the wiretaps too. He is getting payback for that.

Must be some really bad blood between him (Obama) and the JJ Family.

I don't think it's anything more than the regime removing a political player who wasn't paying for "protection" to Obama because JJ has his own "mob" family that was he was paying for the privilege of having a corrupt political seat...

Obama as "Godfather" of the Chicago mob must be respected...

I can almost see Rahm kissing Obama ring as the plot to replace JJ junior is hatched...as the camera pans out and the door shuts...

JJJr.’s graft and corruption is probably seen as a strategy
by the Zero Admin. to look tough on what looks like a blatant
abuse of campaign funds (no contest),so that JJJr. can be sacrificed as a fall guy, the salient function of which is nullify any further charges of Zero’s corruption, multiple vacations,Moochie’s high life lifestyle, etc. JJJr. will probably serve a few months, the sentence greatly reduced by the mitigating circumstances of his mental problems. Notice how ,months ago,the mental problems served as the “advance man” for his
real crimes, which were revealed later: they were only offered up as a reason for him not running again for office.

He could wear the mink cashmere cap with the mink parka on Saturday night. On Sunday He could wear the black and red cashmere cape with the Michael Jackson fedora to church. Fun with fashion, faith and someone else’s money.

I once ran into Jesse in Vegas. I was wearing a sport coat, he was wearing a red leather jump suit! And he had 3 YOUNG ladies with him.
