    The Jackson file... Ensconced in the safety of their home in Washington, D.C., former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, former Ald. Sandi Jackson, are struggling to make ends meet before their sentencing in June. To wit: The shattered couple, who recently pleaded guilty to felonies, could lose their law licenses. They are desperately trying to pay the bills and figure out a financial plan for their two children. Although writing a memoir is on the table if Jackson Jr. can find a publisher (or publish it himself), Sneed is told their major financial support now is Triple J’s...

  • No more excuses, Ald. Jackson (JJJ's wife still MIA for $100K a year)

    **SNIP** Records from the city clerk's office show she missed five of 16 City Council meetings this year. She made it to four committee meetings out of 72. Four of 72. Last year, she made it to all but two council meetings, according to attendance records. But from May 2011, when Mayor Rahm Emanuel reshuffled committee assignments, through December 2011, she missed 34 committee meetings out of 38. That was the year before her husband's hospitalization. Turns out Ald. Jackson's chronic absenteeism isn't unique. Many aldermen have spotty attendance records at committee meetings. And that's where the work gets done....
