Skip to comments.Jesse Jackson Jr. shielding his wife
Posted on 11/26/2012 3:53:24 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
It looks like former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.(D-Ill.), who resigned Wednesday, is trying to take any potential heat off of his wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th)who is also his campaign manager.
Im told that Sandi Jackson has hired her own legal representation as her husbands lawyers try to work out a deal in the ongoing federal probe of his campaign finances.....
....According to campaign finance disclosures, Sandi Jackson has been drawing $5,000-a-month payments from her husbands main campaign fund through her firm, J. Donnatella and Associates. Her company has been on the Jackson campaign payroll for years, and it is located, according to FEC records, in the couples Washington red-brick rowhouse off DuPont Circle. Sandi Jackson was deeply involved in the South Side and south suburban political operation the couple put together run for a time from the basement of their Chicago home....
The Jackson Crisis Managers
Jacksons legal team hired Washingtons premier crisis management firm Smith & Company to help Jackson navigate through his troubled waters. The principles are Judy Smith and Christopher Garrett.
Smith hit the news, again, in recent days when Jill Kelley, the Tampa socialite who figures in the former CIA Director David Petraeus sex scandal, retained Smith to represent her. The ABC show Scandal leading character, Olivia Pope, is based on Smith, a co-executive producer of the series......
....Kelleys hiring of Smith triggered a [NYT] Nov.16 story on Smith headlined Another Client for Ms. Fix-It. The Washington Post on Nov. 22 featured Smith and other lawyers and media managers as the power players in the Petraeus saga.
Smith shot to fame herself when she represented Monica Lewinsky during the investigation of former President Bill Clinton that led to his impeachment. Smith also has repped other scandalized figures, including former Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) and NFL player Michael Vick.....

I count that as a plus for him.
I’ll bet JJ jr is using campaign funds to pay for his high priced legal talent. Is this legal?
If we had a real Justice Dept. instead of one run by a crook, Eric Holder, they’d be investigating the entire criminal enterprise of the Democrat party in Chicago.
The RICO law could be used but won’t be because these vipers are Obama’s homies.
So who’s paying for these fixers?
shielding the co-conspirator
It’s not really. He is shielding their income which is drained of through his wife’s firm.
The good news is Ms. Fixit’s Clients have pretty much been impossible to defend. The value of her service appears dubious at best. The Jackson’s are toast.
Now you see I look at that from a different perspective.
He has to shield her to shield himself.
They are in this together and if he can stop an investigation of her they will not find how deeply.
We don’t know what perfidies her firm Donnatella and Associates is into. Is this where the supporters of JJ Jr. make their contributions? Payoffs?
To me this case mirrors one we had here in Maryland when Prince Georges County Commissioner Jack Johnson and his wife were ripping off PG County
Check out Jacksons wife’s brassiere and maybe like Mrs. Johnson you will find $80,000 dollars hidden.LMAO
People familiar with the Md. Case will know what I mean or google it.LMAO
Did everyone know that they found maxine waters totally innocent of all wrongding?? LMAO As if any other conclusion had any chance of happening.
Crisis management in DC. Smith's firm is as busy as a brothel in in an old western mining town (but without the respect).
Sure he wants to shield his wife because she will be his only source of income when this is all over.
That was obvious when he stated recently the he and he alone takes responsibility. That should have been a clue to the Feds that his wife had her hands in the campaign funds and was as guilty as he. And the $5,000/mo to her firm??? what for???
Right now the house, accounts, everything down to his underwear are being transferred into her name.
Of course he’s shielding her...she’s in this up to her eyeballs.
These Chicago people, including our #1 scoundrel, are as filthy as anyone ever involved in politics. These people are despicable, yet they keep getting elected and have now even infiltrated the White House.
I just can’t believe that people are just so set on freebies that they can’t see through the fact that they are slaves to the government. This whole brood is disgusting.
She knows where all the bodies are buried.
I guess Jesse Sr. and Obummer aren’t on the greatest of terms these days?
“...Is this legal?...”
Probably not. But since when has things like rules and laws been an impediment to dimoCRACKS?
Sounds like jr. needs his old man to minister to him. /sarc
Thieves are still thieves, whether they’re called “Congressman” or not.
$5,000-a-month just another dem shell game it happenes every day.
After watching “Boss” on Starz, I have an entirely new perspective on the level of corruption in politics, especially Chicago. A pity that the show has been cancelled.
Nor does he need Sharpton, Calypso Louie or any of the other race/poverty pimps. He's almost entirely supported nationwide by blacks even without the help of these so-called "leaders".
They'll all be thrown under the Greyhound.........and the pimping will be left to Obama and his DC thugocracy exclusively.
Bye, bye, Junior.
Jr’s insanity is far more profound and further developed than his peers.
He bots dat job fair and square. Him wants to be da senator.
It looks like he was using her to launder campaign money into personal income. If she's investigated, she will likely throw HIM under the bus to protect herself. She's likely told him that she's unwilling to get into legal trouble over this, and WILL throw him under the bus.
How does that work? (Have the Sun-Times fired the editor?)
If anybody starts really digging, it will not be surprising to find that other recipients of his campaign cash were doing kickbacks as well.
I watched it too.
Completely believable, what with the crowd governing the country.
The ward “heads” in Cook County and their power was more than a little troubling.
Of course he has to shield her - she’s going to be running to fill his vacant seat.
Indeed the Chicago machine is well oiled.
IL people should demand Jesse, Sr., for Congress, who used to say ad nauseum “Up with Hope, Down with Dope”.
