Hot ticket: 22 candidates file for Jesse Jackson Jr. seat

By Rachel Rose Hartman, Yahoo! News

Political Reporter

.By Rachel Rose Hartman, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – Tue, Jan 8, 2013...

A crowded field of 22 candidates—17 Democrats and 5 Republicans—filed for the Feb. 26 primary to succeed resigned Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. in Illinois before Monday's filing deadline.

The heavily Democratic Chicago-area 2nd District will likely center on the Democratic slate, which is topped by former U.S. Rep. Debbie Halvorson, who challenged Jackson in the 2012 primary; former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds; state Sen. Toi Hutchinson; Chicago Alderman Anthony Beale; Cook County Chief Administrative Officer Robin Kelly; health care executive and former U.S. Senate candidate Joyce Washington; and former NFL linebacker and state Sen.-elect Napoleon Harris.

Former conservative radio host Lenny McAllister stands out in the GOP field.

Winners of the party primaries will face off in an April 9 special general election.

Jackson resigned Nov. 21 after a prolonged absence from Congress while undergoing treatment for bipolar disorder and gastrointestinal issues. Jackson also faced a federal probe of the alleged misuse of campaign funds.

I saw a quote on another forum,

"Chicago Congressional seats should be listed on Ebay, at least then we will know who bids the most."

Wasn't Jesse Jackson Jr. contacted about bidding on Obama's seat by then governor Blagojevich?

Yes he was.
Amerika's Atty General, Demokrat Eric Holder (A fellow Black Man in Amerika Today) used his "position of honor" to thoroughly investigate the Mob Ties and Buying of Candidates, in the adopted Hometown of The Son of Communists, Barry Soetoro, is also a Black Man In Amerika today in the Employ of the Chicago Mob.

It is so comforting to know that the Best and Brightest have risen from the Urban Cesspool, and that they were able to get jobs from the Chicago Mob......Makes one PROUD! to be an American!
