JESSE JACKSON JR

"***The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Jesse Jackson Jr. has a plea deal on the table for his ongoing federal investigation that will include "significant jail time" in federal prison.

Author Michael Sneed's source also informs that Jackson's wife Sandi "feels like she was thrown under the bus by her husband," as it has now come to light that she too is under a separate federal investigation. Ms. Jackson resigned from her post as 7th ward Alderman in Chicago last month.

Both Jesse Jr. and his wife Sandi have apparently gotten their hands caught in the cookie jar when it comes to campaign funds.***"

Where's the outrage from the media that another public "servant" is dirty?

Lefty, HASF, Willo, Shirley, Slush, do you agree he should go to jail for his crimes? What if he were a republican?

Unless of course you can change the law by fiat.

Larry your question has no winners. They're all crooks and deserve whatever is coming to them. Perhaps you'll get your answer when Jesse turns up on "Dancing with the Stars" like Tom DeLay :).

Tom DeLay was sentenced to 3 years in prison. He was convicted of a crime and he should do the time.

So you agree Jesse jr should do jail time. Thank you.

Dancing With the Stars was once a good entertaining show. It showed that real dancing was still popular. Schools started ballroom dancing clubs and found out it was fun as well as exercising.

But when they took Tucker Carlson and political people and became a caricature of itself, I stopped watching. Besides, it took time away from "Deadliest Catch".

Tom Delay has never served a day yet. He's awaiting appeal. This is what I meant by no winners. It's certainly not the American public. Politicians are a special breed in our justice system. It's hard to prosecute against money, power, and influence.

Is he breaking some law by not serving yet? Does he as well as Jesse jr have a right to the appeals process?

Or should we suspend the Constitution and just send Mr Delay to jail because he's a republican?

If he loses his appeal, he will go to jail. As he should.

You are surely aware there are many people actually serving jail time for committing perjury in a Federal Court over having an affair. President Bubba did just that and he served no time.

Larry, that is not and was not my point. Perhaps, I didn't understand the point of you original post and it's title. Is there something special about being a Democratic criminal as opposed to a Republican one? What were you aiming for there?

If they did something that was unlawful whether Republican or Democrat they should serve time. Wrong is wrong!

What I'm saying is that when a Republican commits a crime, it's all over the news and the attack dogs come out. When a Democrat commits a crime, there's silence. As a matter of fact, the mainstream media cover it up or bury the story. Have you seen anything on CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, PBS et all mention this story?

So all I was asking is if Jesse should do jail time. And I was waiting for the Libs here to naturally say "no". But if Jesse were a Republican, naturally they all would be shouting "YES" from the rooftops. And the media would be treating it like did the Tom DeLay case.

BOTH are dirty. But one gets deep fried, and the other get no mention.

Larry, I don't have TV so of course my answer would be no, lol. But Jackson has certainly been covered extensively by the main stream press so I can't agree with your position that coverage was lacking. And I think everyone is of the same consensus here, whatever their political persuasion. Wrong is wrong. We should move on now:)

Now I have to go dig out the chickens, lol We only got about 6-7 inches of snow here but it is wet and heavy. How did you make out in VT? I hear CT and ME got clobbered.

The storm was a bust. We only got about 12-15 inches. But the snow is a very light powder so shoveling is no problem. It's the type where you can't build a snowman or have a good old snowball fight. Powder.
