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.

All I can think of is the cubby hole Tony Soprano had in the house with a 1/2 a mill, and more firepower than Ted Nugent.

I wonder if Jr had such a cubby hole and did they get it out already...

Corzine’s gotten off easy so far (I don’t look for him to make more than a token payment relative to his wealth in the civil suit). But, Jesse’s being stripped! Racial Justice! Racial Justice! /S

Can the government fine a church? The First Amendment prohibits the federal government from making a law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

When he gets out of prison...he will publically recant all he has done wrong and will be elected to the US Senate from Illinois.

Do you doubt it?

Never going to happen . . . Obama will surely call Holder and have his [in] Justice Department cease and desist on Jackson’s property acquisition.

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.

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.
