Chip off the old block – Jesse Jackson Jr. charged with misusing hundreds of thousands of dollars of campaign funds,
Hey, it’s the Chicago way. Chip off the old block Jesse Jackson Jr (son of race baiter Jesse Jackson) has been charged with misusing hundreds of thousands of dollars of campaign funds. Daddy should be proud of his corrupt Democrat son. Jackson Jr. could face several years in jail, but don’t be surprised if he ‘gets some help’ to avoid jail time. Jesse Jackson Jr. used to represent the ‘fine’ people of Chicago in the House of Representative. Chicago really knows how to pick ’em.
He is accused of spending approximately $750,000 of campaign funds on personal items such as a $43,350 gold-plated Rolex watch, fur coats and home furniture. In addition, Jackson was charged with accepting $28,000 in undisclosed gifts and loans.
Federal prosecutors typically file a criminal information rather than a grand jury indictment when there is an expectation that the person charged will plead guilty. Jackson is now likely to face a hefty fine and could spend years in jail, reportedly as long as 57 months.
