NBCChicago reported last week that Jackson will plead guilty as part of his plea deal, and jail time would be in the hands of a federal judge who has not yet been assigned. Converting campaign contributions for personal use is strictly prohibited by federal law and opens Jackson up to not more than 5 years in prison.
Prosecutors will recommend a prison sentence for between 46 and 57 months plus fines, according to reports.(My emphasis)
Jackson's wife, former Chicago Ald. Sandi Jackson, has also been charged with falsifying her tax returns and reporting less income than she made.>/i>
This story itself is interesting enough. What's more interesting, that I've not read about (in spite of trying), is why the Regime even brought these charges in the first place, when the Illegal is happy to ignore and even participate in worse conduct himself. Must be some really bad blood between him and the JJ Family. Anybody here have any clues?
These racists need to knock that crap off right now /s.
$750,000 in campaign funds stolen is new record. Most I hear is $10,000 here and $20,000 there. The guy and his wife are psychos.
He spent some on fur capes... like a Rick James wannanee or 70’s pimp
i am sure white people somewhere are to blame for this. /s
Did they mention his party affiliation or his race anywhere in this story?
I didn’t think so.
I’ll be back later to collect the free beers I should be getting for saying he’s going to do time over this. It may not be hard time, but I still say he’s going to jail. It may be a condition of not putting his wife there too.
The black Al Capone.
Finally, the cause of his undefinable medical problem comes to light.
Jazzy Jettson jewnyer. They’d elect him in his grave.
A Democrat, taking someone else’s money..WOW who didn’t see this one coming/sarc
Jesse Jackson Jr. was a crook all along? Oh no! The scales are falling from my eyes!
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.
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”?
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.
Like father, like son.
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...
That’s a drop in the bucket to his daddy.
