Convicted Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) is scheduled to receive $8,700 per month in government disability pay, as well as a partial federal pension of $45,000.
That generous $8,700 in disability comes thanks to Jacksons sudden development of a mood disorder as the federal government began looking to indict him.
Jackson, who was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison, had no history of mental illness during his prior 17 years in Congress.
Rev. Jesse Jackson has defended his sons claims of mental illness, stating to the court, This time a year ago I thought we may have lost him.

I’ve got a mood disorder after reading this, how much do I get?
What he won’t spend on smokes he can spend on protection.
My daughter has a ling diagnosed schizophrenia and can’t get apprived for SS and this assclown gets mote than I make in a year for a SUDDEN disorder. Why did fight a king and dukes and lords? We have established iur own.
149,000/yr to go to prison where you have $0 in expenses? What a deal.
Grifters. Chicago/Illinois deserve them if they vote for them.
He’s still stealing. I would lock him up for another term.
I didn’t, but ever since the clown and his cohorts have taken over the government, I have a mood disorder.....it is called the “pissed off” syndrome. It is truly affecting my mood and I want my disability.
What a country!
Consider it a form of reparations,, yeah, reparations.
I truly despise these people and the people that facilitate their acquisition of power.
Well, he is a liberal right? We all know that liberalism IS a mental illness.
Well of COURSE he is, Silly! His Daddy done taught him well!
I think I’ve got Sudden Liberalism Disorder. Can I get a pension?
Wasn’t there some move to take away his pension? Or maybe that was part of the deal he got.
Screw ‘im - give him obummercare
And these people say we are greedy.
Wha? How the hell can I be paid this much for my mood disorder?
I just deal with it. That kind of money might make it feel a lot better rather than slaving away at work!
jesse that’s racis’ to wear colors, man. especially wearing crackahs clothes.
all it would get you is disarmed.
Looks like there are so many viruses in this computer called Government, clean up would be impossible. In the real world, you try to save your docs, music and photos, and buy a new computer.
Another con-man plundering us taxpayers.
Socialism Is Legal Plunder - Bastiat
BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM
Domestic enemies BUMP!
You were/are part of the problem, SCUMBAG. Get lost.
live - free - republic
(Because I'm not a liberal leach.)
We’ll never know the true story of why the Feds went after Jessie Jackson, Jr. Was this Obama slapping down Papa Jessie Jackson to show him who is boss? Did Junior say the wrong thing in public? Or is Junior being used as an example to other politicians in DC that no one is safe?
It can’t just be the improper use of campaign funds he pleaded guilty to. Everyone in DC does that.
Perhaps this is why the Republicans are all running scared and doing Obama’s bidding. Could it be they’ve been helping themselves to their own campaign stashes and now that Jessie Jr. has been used as an example they know Obama and Holder can nail them at any time?
Plus the lucrative drug smuggling into prison, etc.
Legislatures (state & federal) should be part-time jobs with 1/10th the pay, NO benefits, NO perks, NO retirement, NO staff, NO entitlements, NO healthcare, NO pensions, NO etc., etc. etc.
Get a job doing something PRODUCTIVE, not progressive you POS elitist scumbags.
live - free - republic
I’ve got a mood disorder after reading the breitbart article!
Well, you have SLD. Those scum sucking liberals are all on LSD.
EVERY agency under 0bama is sticking it to conservatives for any application or claim to any agency under him. IRS, SSA, EPA, etc. 'Targeting' isn't only being done at the IRS. ALL agencies are targeting conservatives.
Sounds like uncle rahm will be denying jessuh jr. firearms possession if and when he gets out. He has a diagnosed mental issue.............(?)
Haven’t these $ocialist $cumbags stolen enough money from us?
He's/they're fortunate that the general populace hasn't developed AMS (Angry Mob Syndrome), yet.
You know you have a very valid point.
Grifters to the very end
My wife suggested I stop reading stories like this because my BP is way too high and she attributes my disorder to how much things like this infuriate me while causing the neighbors to close their windows to avoid my all to frequent usage of foul language.
I am a long-time sufferer :(
Love the diognosis!
“I truly despise these people and the people that facilitate their acquisition of power.”
Throughout history the only sure-fire way to deal with a corrupt political ruling class was to simply kill them; no pressure from exiles, no insurgency from their supporters...it is just finished.
