I guess Conressman Jackson has lost influence with the locals. They will cut him loose, sacriface him to cover for all the others that got caught up in Blago's pay for play Illinois politics. There is something very depressing when you are caught up in an ethics investigation, and because you are from a black district they let you hang to dry. He should have known better then to expect cover right now. They cannot have a corrupt black politician from Chicago running for Congress at the same time they have a corrupt black politician from Chicago running for President. Welcome to the big boys club,Jesse.
Both Jacksons are on their way out......they've spent all their political capital and can't extort anymore.

Daddy Jessie got away for years under the Clinton Administration, shaking down big business in the name of civil rights, ending up being paid off through his Rainbow Foundation. Jessie Jr. thought it would be no problem getting involved in buying Obama's old Senate seat, and he has been found out. I would be depressed too, with a tummy ache, looking at a federal indictment that will probably be coming down soon.

Are there no good hospitals in Washington where the Congressman probably lives? Or is it he has to stay out of their jurisdiction? He has been hiding out since June 25th. Time to come back, and face the music.

What WE know is that G W BUSH was the last qualified president the USA had. The present occupant is an illegal who has yet to produce PROOF that he can legally hold the office of president. Proof that he is NOT qualified has been produced yet our corrupt controlled court system refuses to adhere to the laws of this country because congress and the senate are full of spineless rats like yourself who belong in jail under the rule of a Hugo or Fidel. As for the Tea Party which is but a very small group of Americans who want our constitution to be honored most of the members are DEMOCRATS! You are a paid Hack like MCP who has no allegiance to the USA!

I see no end to it. Matter of fact we may as well get used to a whole new wave of BS via the Muslims and other scum of the middle east with the alphabet soup names.
