Jesse Jr. was raised on big money Daddy exploited from the Government. So he didn't know any different. Misappropriating Government money was a cultureal thing for him. I feel sorry for his children. They have to go to school with children who will make fun of them. They have an 11 year old, and a 9 year old.

"I offer no excuses for my conduct and I fully accept my responsibility for the improper decisions and mistakes I have made," said Jackson, a Democrat.

So.......Did he make this statement from jail?

Now if they could only get his dad and Sharpton.

The camera's and microphones could use some downtime.

Jail time???? This isn't Jacksons fault, he grew up poor (by his standards), he's Black and there are rumors his 4th grade teacher didn't care for him. Give the poor man a break.
