The Rev. Jesse Jackson's newly released tax forms for 2000 reveal that his top donors that year were a who's who of companies that had been threatened with boycotts or other sanctions by Mr. Jackson.

The forms also show that Mr. Jackson's Citizenship Education Fund, his primary tax-exempt group, accepted a $50,000 donation from Kevin Ingram, a convicted criminal and the former head of the mortgage-backed securities desks at Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank.

Mr. Jackson is becoming stunningly out of season, it seems. At least, the old magic doesn't seem to be what it once was. Where media exposure used to be his greatest strength, it now seems to be what threatens him the most.

Pity, that.

Whoever appears on the anti-reverend "Shakedown Breakdown" list deserves a boycott. We have to cut off the funds to any CORPORATION that is FUNDING this TERRORIST.

After Bush won, I thought the IRS would surely audit Rev. JJ right away. But seems O'Reilly is right, the powerful tend to protect the powerful -- unless a great deal of pressure is put on them.

"And it is still the Republicans' fault."

Gosh, I hope so, it would be one of the few things they've actually done right.

We need to get a large organization, say, FR Members, to let it be known that any corporation that caves to JJ, or any group that funds JJ, will be boycotted. I think we can have a lot larger impact than the NAALCP. If he wants to play that game, we have numbers to fight back.

"But among his followers, there may be some concerns and some doubts, but people are willing to hold their noses and still be supportive of him and his service to the community."

Loyalty is a wonderful thing.

I wonder, will we see General Electric on Jackson's 2002 tax returns? Of course, the returns won't be filed until at least 2005.
