Mitchell: Jesse Jackson Jr.’s fall felt like hope died
BY MARY MITCHELL [email protected] February 22, 2013 6:14PM

Jesse Jackson Jr. got away with spending $750,000 in campaign donations for his personal use because too many people were likely blinded by his prominence.

Frankly, the former congressman’s theft amounts to peanuts when compared to the loot Dixon’s former Comptroller Rita Crundwell stole.

The 58-year-old Crundwell was recently sentenced to 191/2 years in prison after pleading guilty to stealing nearly $54 million over 20 years.

Jackson bought stuffed elk heads and groceries. Crundwell bought live horses and a luxury motor home.

Both of these people got caught with their hands deep in the cookie jar.Crundwell’s crime was uncovered when an employee discovered her secret account while filling in for the long-time comptroller.

Frankly, after Jackson’s name surfaced in connection with allegations that former Gov. Rod Blagojevich tried to sell a Senate seat, it was only going to be a matter of time before the feds put his campaign finances under a microscope.

Dixon was sinking in red ink. But Crundwell was able to siphon off a staggering sum because of her longevity on the job.

Apparently, her neighbors and colleagues believed the middle-aged woman was so successful breeding horses, she could afford to party like a rock star.

Chicagoans, on the other hand, have seen so many corrupt public officials go to jail, many of us believe that everyone is on the take.

But Jackson’s near super-star status shielded him from a level of scrutiny that might have put him in check before he plunged off this cliff.

As the son of a famous civil rights leader, Jackson was a target for his famous father’s enemies. At the same time, he also enjoyed a built-in level of respect among black people.

And in the short term, there has been little love for a black person who brings down a prominent black person.

For instance, in 1995, then Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Andrea Zopp endured harsh criticism for prosecuting then 2nd District Congressman Mel Reynolds for having sex with an underage girl.

Reynolds claimed to be a victim of “racist and politically motivated prosecution.”

In her closing arguments, Zopp vehemently denied those claims.

Jackson made no such allegations.

With his famous parents looking on, Jackson tearfully pleaded guilty to misusing his campaign funds.

“I misled the American people,” Jackson admitted.

The 47-year-old Jackson waived a trial.

“I have no interest in wasting the taxpayers’ time or money,” he said.Unlike Crundwell’s cut and dried case, Jackson’s fall is bursting with irony.For one thing, his “day of reckoning” came during Black History Month.

It was humbling enough to see the Jackson clan marching into a federal courthouse to support a wayward son. But watching this scene play out during Black History Month added insult to injury.

The timing is a reminder of how far we’ve come as a people — and how far some of our leaders have strayed.

That Ronald C. Machen Jr., a black man, was the person in charge of unraveling Jackson’s financial schemes seemed a case of poetic justice.

Obviously, the people of Dixon feel betrayed by Crundwell’s theft.

But the younger Jackson’s fall from grace felt like a large chunk of hope died.

And that’s incredibly sad.

It depends on what it's donated for. If it is money donated for campaign funds, it can't be used to buy stuffed elk heads. That constitutes a misappropriation of campaign funds.

Jessie Sr is a FBI mole. MLK hated Jessie with a passion.

Jessie Jr is a FBI mole. That is how the state of Illinois discovered it's governor tried to sell Senator Obama's seat in congress.

I can't believe Americans can be so stupid.

True, but Native didn't have to withdraw and isolate themselves from everybody and wallow in pain!

Black men do the same things blame everybody when in MOST cases not all its what you do to yourselves!

AND...Bernie Madoff ran the largest Ponzi scheme in HISTORY stealing some $50 billion dollars from unwitting investors both big and small, from individuals to national banks. But according to interviews done by the Associated Press, some experts put Madoff’s alleged fraud in the $10 to $20 billion dollar range; still probably the biggest con ever but a far cry from $50 billion dollars.

DAYUMMM Jessie should have called old Bernie to learn how to really STEAL abundantly! LOL
