Pending Jesse Jackson Jr. plea deal includes ‘significant jail time,’ source says
Chicago Sun Times ^ | February 6, 2013 | Michael Sneed

Posted on 02/07/2013 4:24:51 AM PST by Zakeet

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.

Sandi Jackson claims she was stunned by campaign finance abuse disclosures against her husband, who has been treated for mental disorders and allegedly spent $40,000 on a Rolex watch purchased with campaign funds.

Sandi Jackson was advised to get a lawyer at least four months ago.

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.

My boy was provoked by oppression,
That caused him to suffer depression.
So there's no need for jail,
For him or his tail,
Or for your stupid Freeper's obsession!

The wife pulls $60k a year...just for being the wife. It’s kind of comical. I’m guessing she wakes up now...realizes that he’s been mentally ill for his entire life, and she just looked the other way.

I’ll be surprised if he actually serves a single day in jail. With his described mental illness....seems like a permanent visit to a mental facility would be more in line. The interesting thing is that his Representative deal will grant him health care free of charge for the remainder of his life.

I think Schadenfreude is closest to what I felt when I read this article. I just hope in the years ahead that another “prominent” Chicago Democrat politician I won’t name is treated similarly.

(Hint: Last name begins with and “O”.)

About time to investigate finances of the “Rainbow Coalition” to see how much Papa Rev. Jackass has skimmed off the top to support his cadre of female assistant “baby-mommas”.

Jacksons - a family of criminals and race baiting shisters.

———he’s been mentally ill for his entire life,———

No, he is from criminal stock. Born a criminal, raised as a criminal

The Democrat party is a criminal enterprise.

“Jacksons - a family of criminals and race baiting shisters.”

This really puts a dent in their “new” TV series, “The Jacksons of Chicago.” Jimmy Walker and John Amos are going to have to find another gig. Oh well, Earl Butz was at least partially right. Prison is a “warm place to $hit”!

Yup! BTW where did you get the plaque? I’d like to replace the one in my guest bat that says: “The length of time it takes depends on which side of the door you are on”

Oppression... The greatest oppression in this poor boy’s life has been the fact that his father has been arguing against his own right to exist for the last 25+ years.

Why wouldn’t he become crazy and self destructive?

Unless there is a rift between Jackson and Obama/Holder, Jackson’s kid will never go to jail.

The fact that so many people continued to support and elect this racist creep should scare any normal American.

His district is better suited for a location in an African cannibal culture. Complete insanity and evil.

Is this investigation, now netting Sandi as well, politically motivated? Does it take out potential rivals of the Obamas and thus clear the way for Michelle’s Senate run?

“Triple J” is not mentally ill. That story has been a diversion. He is, however, a mendacious criminal, just like every Chicago democrat politician thief (I know, that’s redundant....). Now, if only the Feds could get to the BIG criminals - the Daleys, the Madigans, Rahm Emanuel, and the motherlode - Obama and Jarrett.

Excellent, then Soebarkah risks indictment for having negotiated with the felon for the selling of his former senate seat.

JJ Jr will be thrown under the Obama bus like all the others he no longer had any need of.

Obama pardons or JJ Jr sings.

Who is going to indict God-like Obama?

So I guess your bathroom is one of the “warmer rooms” in your home! Earl is smiling down on you for your adroit application of his commentary on AA “culture.”

His wife said “I couldn’t breath when I heard what was going on”. OH, wait. That’s what Hillary said when she heard about Bill gettin’ a Bj.”

Looks like all the support for _______ ain’t payin’ off. The election is over. Of course, wouldn’t matter anyway. Those who worship him will worship for eternity.....IN HELL!

And Jesse ain’t about to get off his gravy train. He’ll be tryin’ to raise money for eternity.....IN HELL!

Obviously not a Submariner. So WHAT kind of Rolex costs 40 grand and can someone post a pic of it?
