Washington (CNN) – Federal prosecutors Friday filed felony charges against former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., alleging the illegal misuse of about $750,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses and gifts.
The formal charges of conspiracy, making false statements, and mail and wire fraud, were made public in federal court only days after Jackson had signed a plea deal with prosecutors who were investigating potential financial improprieties.
Eventually, all Democratic politicians from Illinois will end up in prison.
I'm shocked... SHOCKED, I tell you.
As worthless as his father.
"Eventually, all Democratic politicians from Illinois will end up in prison."
And all GOPers/Teatrolls will end up in asylums where their paranoid delusions can't hurt anyone anymore.
Arrogance will get them every time.
The bammans buddy, go figure
So what does that say about Governor "Ryan"...oh he must be the exception to your rule
What a tool - he should be in jail...
Typical Democrat. Democrats love to steal. Isn't this guy a big Obama supporter?
The funny thing is that the people of Illinois voted for this loser while he was in the hospital recovering from his "stress". That says something about dumocrats. And everyone knows he was holding out until his Federal Pension kicked in to resign his post.
Only democrats misuse funds?
Jesse will blame it on racism or President Bush.
I do not care whether he is democrat or Republican. Put this pig in Jail. No bail.
Hey, he got caught, I bet there are many others guilty, oh wait, they are all millionaires, funny, congress, millionaire's club thanks to rich donors, hey he owned up to it, most don't......
I DID NOT DO IT!!! WAIT. I have been caught!! Please forgive my little "error" in judgement! Sound familiar? And, what are they saying, $750 grand? How many of, WE, THE PEOPLE, could use ANY of that to help us make it?
Corrupt, dishonest and used-car salesman bad taste.
