Jesse Jr, Jailbird To Be
Remember a few months back when he quit Congress in shame, citing his “mental problems” and how a big federal probe was launched on him? Things must be pretty bad there ...
Sneed has learned a plea deal is now on the table between former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and federal authorities probing allegations of campaign fund misuse.
Sneed is told the plea deal includes Jackson serving time in federal prison.
“Significant jail time is now definitely a part of the deal,” said a top Sneed source close to the probe.
“But I think [Jackson’s wife] Sandi, feels like she was thrown under the bus by her husband, ” now that a separate probe has begun on her, a second source added.
For years, Sandi Jackson was paid nearly $5,000 a month from her husband’s campaign fund through her consulting firm, J. Donatella & Associates. The payments continued, even after Jesse Jackson Jr. checked into a mental health facility last year and — except for a robo-call — did not campaign for the Nov. 6 election, which he won.
There is loads more. Read it all at Sneeds. Hey, I wonder what Blago has to say on this? This guy won an election without even campaigning while he was staying at the extra long sleeves hotel? Amazing. Boy howdy, that’s the Chicago Way for sure.
Like father, like son.
It’s Illinios,what else do you expect of those who run things there.Graft is like Water,the more you use the better things grow,especially in Chicago.
