Posted on 02/21/2013 6:56:47 PM PST by Bon of Babble
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s guilty plea to fraud charges raises fresh questions about the Congressional Black Caucus. It's a group with many laudable goals, but why do so many in it succumb to corruption? A disproportionate share of ethics cases have been brought against this exclusive club.
According to a 2012 National Journal study, five of the six lawmakers under review by the House Ethics Committee were Black Caucus members. Yet just one in 10 House members belong to the group.

A rhetorical question?
And of course we aren’t allowed to generalize, that would be, let’s see, “sexist”?, “ageist”?, “antisemitic”?, oh, I forget, I’m so confused, wait, I got it, “anti-Amish”?

(it worked for me)
I theorized on the other JJJr thread that there must be some bad voodoo between the Jacksons and Obamas for this federal prosecution to go forward.
It is? Such as what?
see, the problem is, we’re expecting blacks to respect and live by the same laws all the white folks have to live by. if it’s a law passed by mostly white lawmakers, it’s racist and also too much to expect blacks to be able to not break such a law. they’d probably be labeled by other blacks as uncle toms if they didn’t break such a law. you know, like they label black kids in schools that study and do too well on tests as “oreos” - black on the outside, white on the inside.
Jr belongs in jail as does his wife and his felonious father.
only letting in people whose skin is a certain color, and then only if they are democrat.
Dude, that’s and insurance line such as “some of my best friends are black”.
...fraud charges raises fresh questions about the Congressional Black Caucus. It’s a group with many laudable goals, but why do so many in it succumb to corruption?
Because it is in their genes. And even if they are caught black handed, few will ever be prosecuted.
I wonder what the Congressional Yellow Caucus thinks of all this?
IIRC, 0zero had his empty seat Blago filled with JJJr. lined up for Valerie Jarrett to fill.
You have no idea how much your comments make me laugh — I often read them out loud to the whole house!!
I told JimRob today that YOU were one of the things I really missed when FReep was down.
Glad you were resurrected intact from the ashes when FReep arose after crashing and burning!!
Thanks Bon, we’ve got die laughing and before that happens live laughing!
Good, thanks FRiend
THe Congressional Black Caucus has traditionally ranged between black nationalist/extremists to communists/socialists, including Conyers (Red), Crockett (Red), Rangel (far-left and crook), Clay (Crook), Diggs (crook), Rush, Danny Davis (red), Norton (leftist), Chisholm (far-left, full id. not released yet), Dellums (Red), McKinney (Red and crazy black extremist), Ellison (Black Muslim extremist), etc.
You get my drift. It was never a moderate organization because its founders were far leftists and crooks. Moderates didn’t stand a chance.
And that’s the truth!
Congressional Black Caucus=The Klan with a Tan.
By the way they get a lot of ethics complaints , but few convictions, thanks to the Double top secret politically correct doctrine that blacks can do no wrong.
Everything is Whiteys fault.
None of those Congressional scumbags have anything on Obama in the race for corruption and downright treason.
And it will not stop until the hangings start, for treason that is.
They just elected John Kerry a known traitor to be Secretary of State so I don’t see the hangings starting any time soon.
