If he kept the job for the benefits, he wouldn't be the first person to do so.The Jesse Jackson family should be ashamed for sucking at the public teat.
If he quit, his wife could get benefits as a Chicago alderman and put him on her plan.
On the whole, I would rather he suck at the Federal teat; it is better able to absorb his costs.
I only wish all the street people I see downtown who are clearly biploar could get inpatienet care at Mayo Clinic for months.
You are right though, the family should be ashamed of him. Did you see that one of teh charges is that he is facing is spending $14,000 for a watch for his girlfriend using campaign funds.
Like him or hate him Jackson Sr has spent years advancing blacks' place in society. Jackson Jr is reinforcing a negative stereotyp for me and menatl illness does not let him off teh hook for character defects. Sad.
