Cover story. That man isn’t leaving DC without millions to come home to.
Absolutely. The Sun-Times conveniently forgot to mention that Je$$e Jack$son secured that beer distributorship from Anheuser-Busch through his corporate shakedown scheme. Imgaine that; the family of a “preacher” selling beer, and getting the lucrative distributorship, despite no prior experience in the business and over dozens of other, more qualified applicants. In exchange, Anheuser-Busch’s “racial” problems mysteriously disappeared.
Junior and the Mrs. will emerge from prison with new jobs at the family business, and a seven-figure annual salary Heck, I’ll even suggest a post for the convicted felon: Senior VP for Governmental Relations. Not that he’ll ever show up at the office; I imagine he’ll be telecommuting form South Beach or another comfortable location.
I do have one question: why was it necessary for Yusef to “drive” his brother to Tucson? Why not get on one of the family’s private jets, or fly first class on an airline. My guess is that Junior took a little road trip to hide some of his cash and other ill-gotten gain from the feds. Wouldn’t surprise me to find some storage units in Yusef’s name, filled with cash, between Chicago and Arizona.
