CHICAGO (AP) At 71, the Rev. Jesse Jackson still keeps a hectic schedule and speaks widely on all kinds of civil rights issues.
But he struggles when addressing one thing: the son and political heir who abandoned his congressional seat last week because of mental health problems and two federal investigations.
The elder Jackson says his heart "burns" over the woes of his oldest child.

Pity is what I feel for Jesse... conceived in rape... he has sold his soul by arguing against his very existence over the last 30 years. Tragic.
It is very difficult to feel any sympathy for a member of such a criminal family. They all should be in a Federal SuperMax serving hard time.
Do we really know Jrs father?
He’s Moochelles half brother. He and Jesse Sr share no DNA
Perhaps he should have stayed home and been a real father.
Jr. might very well have gone apesh@t because he started thinking it was all a lie.
“On August 22, 1995, he was convicted on 12 counts of sexual assault, obstruction of justice and solicitation of child pornography. He resigned his seat on October 1 of that year. Reynolds was sentenced to five years in prison, expected to be released in 1998.
In April 1997, Reynolds was convicted on 15 unrelated counts of bank fraud and lying to SEC investigators. These charges resulted in an additional sentence of 78 months in federal prison. Reynolds served all of his first sentence, and served 42 months in prison for the fraud charges”
Demonrat resume fodder. This gibbedat’s a shoo-in. Daddy Race Pimp needs a direct line to federal funds and this mutt is perfect.
Jesse Jackson Junior’s legal woes are because America is racist.
Years ago, I read a columnist (can’t remember who) who said that Jesse Jackson was a great guy...until he became a white guy.
I actually remember when Jackson was a rabid-anti abortionist, believed that families should be built in the traditional way and stay together, and preached things like education and hard work.
Jesse sold out. He was coopted and funded by the white leftwing establishment and “became a white guy,” meaning that all of a sudden he was a Dem in favor of abortion, state dependency, and was going to spend the rest of his life playing his sole card, race.
He made huge amounts of money by becoming the Dems’ house “[fill in the blank]” and reduced himself to a pathetic leftwing shill.
So he might need to do a bit of deathbed repentance because he coulda been a contendah...if only he had had the guts to do without the Dems and be a Christian (which he isn’t now but probably was then).
Thank you all very much!!
Woo hoo!! And now less than $1.3k to go!! We can definitely do this.
Let's put this baby to bed!!
I feel pity for him too. He was somebody who really could have done something, but for one reason or another, he backed off.
Wow. It just keeps getting sicker.
It was said that he dramatically smeared himself with King's blood and then sought out the camera to decry the tragedy...and proclaimed himself as being there when King died.
Jesse was always an ambitious wanna be...and man without a conscience and a man without character.
He's as theatrical as the so-called Palestinians who hide behind their children and then cry crocodile tears when their children are killed.
Jesse is a psychopath...not at all surprising that his 'son' has mental problems.
The scum doesn’t fall far from the bag.....
They all smeared themselves with King’s blood...well, not all, because there would have had to have been about 500 people on that tiny balcony to accomodate them all.
But I remember reading about Jackson before that and he actually impressed me because of how conservative he was.
Sadly, he sold his birthright for a mess of pottage...actually, pottage is edible, he sold it for garbage.
If in fact JJJ is bi-polar, his father’s total depravity has little to do with it. It is a mental disorder which is genetic. It is tragic. What may be tragic in this family is that JJSr and his ilk were able to hide it for so long and JJJ at his age may find it very difficult to bring himself to a stable, healthy life. It’s possible to be bi-polar and be functional but it can be a struggle.
JJJ class of ‘88 North Carolina A&T State University.
Why would JJJ go so far from home?
He does not appear to be the 4H type?
Jr and the first lady have the same daddy,and it ain’t Jesse
Black college. Daddy’s from Greenville, SC, not too far south of there.
I hope he has a stroke and dies!
