To put it mildly we here at TP@P have had little love and no respect for Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. We did report on his mysterious absence, his drug addiction and the sale of his Washington home. Now comes the coup de grace right; through the heart! The less than Honorable Jesse Jackson has been busted on federal charges. The pride of Chicago, faces felony charges, including conspiracy, in a criminal case filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. He is accused of converting $750,000 in campaign funds to personal use. It would be too much to expect to see Jackson do serious time. That only happens to Amish men who cut off beards but it will be refreshing to see the exalted humbled.
In an odd turn of events it could be Jackson's seat may end up in the possession of a Democrat with with an "A" NRA rating. Former Congresswoman Debbie Halvorson is the current front runner in the 16 candidate race to fill the disgraced congressman's seat. It's an ill wind that blows no good!
