Another criminal who ran for and won a congressional seat might be heading for jail.
Jesse Jackson Jr, who has been hiding out in a rehab facility and who was re-elected by the oblivious on Tuesday, appears to have reached a plea deal which will include a resignation from Congress and likely jail time. He will have to repay the funds he purloined. He might lose his pension.
He apparently misused campaign funds to decorate his house and purchase a $40,000 Rolex watch for a female friend.
I have a question. Why isn’t he being demonized by the state-sponsored media as General Petraeus is? They are barely mentioning his lady friend.
Jesse Jackson Jr. was never dealt with when his associates were caught on tape trying to buy Barack Obama’s senate seat.
His wife said he is debilitated by depression. He is alleged to have bipolar depression. I find it depressing that he has been serving in Congress for 17 years.
I’d like to empty out the entire Congress and start over again with term limits. Twelve years max and they’re out of there.
