Federal prosecutors asked a judge today to let the government seize the homes of former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Sandi, in Washington and Chicago, plus an IRA he has worth almost $80,000.
Jackson, 48, will be sentenced Wednesday for looting his campaign treasury of $750,000. The government wants him to pay a $750,000 forfeiture plus restitution in the same amount.

Wow, imagine these laws applied to real politicians not self made ones.
It would be a blood bath.
Restitution. Seize all assets, including any pensions.
Hey no problem, his daddy Jesse will just get the $$$$ from Paula Dean.
The inmates are running the asylum. But I can’t say much, I tend to loose the car at wallmart. Only difference is I find the car.
Where will the kids live?
“Seizing his homes AND his wife? Man, those Feds are COLD!”
LOL. Advanced grammar-competency strikes again.
Should have lernt his cursive.
When he gets out of prison...”
Wonder if Obama will pardon him in 2016.
Well now you know why he is going after her, da fam gotsa get mo Benjamins!
I thought IRA’s were off limits.
They’ll seize it and sell it for pennies on the dollar.
Typical IRS fashion.
I suspect some such horrible “sin.” JJ Jr. and his wife had to do something really bad to get Holder and the Obamas so upset. $1,350,000 just isn’t all that much when it comes to Chicago DemonCrap graft and the Obama’s personal corruption.
Removing the ads from the excerpt allows you to post more of an excerpt. Plus, makes it less confusing for the reader.
Imagine a Republican in the White House, then imagine the media attention to the mass crowds protesting the ‘unfairness’ of the government ‘targeting’ this dark hued congressman.
It is only the fact that a similarly dark hued DEMOCRAT President that keeps the mob in check. If he remains imprisoned when a GOP President is in the White House, the mobs will spring to Jesse Sr.’s call for ‘fairness’!
I don’t think obammy likes Jackson. Letting Jr. pay the fiddler is obama’s way of cutting Jackson’s nuts off.
Take my wife please.
Seems funny that the folks who think they control the Beast get really surprised when it turns on them too...
The Beast is what it is, and we’re ALL vulnerable to it when it’s on the rampage.
” I look for obammy to give junior a full pardon prior to leaving office.”
