Jesse Jackson, Jr. was one of the people suspected of being involved in Gov. Blagojavich's scam to sell Obama's senate seat.

Blago went to prison and nothing more was mentioned about Jackson.

It seems that rather than stir up embarassing details of Obama's possible involvement in the scheme, Jackson was let off the hook.

Jackson couldn't be let off scott free, so he took a plea deal about mishandling campaign funds instead.

And so life goes on.

Ethics to look into Jesse Jackson Jr. allegation on Obama Senate seat:

“Jackson faces allegations that he allegedly offered through an intermediary to raise millions of dollars for Blagojevich's reelection campaign if the former governor appointed him to fill the rest of Obama's term.”

Lil Jesse's daddy is a good friend of the Judge who will decide on Jess's future, probation, or a few months in a swanky getlemen's prison. Seeing as how Junior is so mentally ill he will likely get probation, and wifey will take the fall. Don't you worry about Jesse Jr not getting relected in 2014 whether he is nutty or nt. That District would reelect him even f he died, and they had to stuff him, and stand him in a corner.

Yes!

And in the last election, Jr. got 71% of the vote and he DIDN'T EVEN CAMPAIGN !!

Yep, they'd vote him in again.

Unfortunately, now that he is a convicted FELON, it is doubtful he can run again.
