J3 didn’t have health insurance, so he stole the money to pay for his stay at re-hab. If Obamacare were in place now, he wouldn’t be in this trouble. It’s the REPUBLICANS’ fault!!!

Every time I think I’m going to get indicted, I get really depressed, too.
A week ago, there were articles at Free Republic saying that Jackson’s staff hadn’t seen or spoken to him in 3 months.
Can you imagine what the headlines would like if the son of a prominent white Conservative did that?
I hope he does an O.J. Simpson when the cops finally show up.
Him and his daddy don’t ever answer to anyone about anything. They’re entitled, dontcha know.

Treatment - not so much. This from June 15, 2012:
All of this stress stems from Triple J’s Pre-Indictment Syndrome where, if the Chicago Political Machine doesn’t intervene, will show he wanted that seat and offered campaign money to get it. Apparently Triple J’s syndrome isn’t too severe, as he was recently spotted seeing Al Green in concert at Ravinia in northern Illinois. We pray that Jesse had decent seats because his ailment is quite serious.

Daddy must really be pissed off! 3J only lasted less than twenty years of ripping people off, whilst Dad has been able to amass a rip-off fortune over his entire life.
Where did JJ’s training to 3J go awry??

“who has been on a leave of absence from Congress since June for medical treatment”
So, exactly who is representing his constituents these past few months? Perhaps the local community organizer should start doing some trash talking to get someone on the case.
BTW, How much has this little vacation from reality cost the taxpayers?

I’d bet anything that his problem isn’t depression, it’s drugs.
