Federal prosecutors asked a judge today to let the government seize the homes of former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Sandi, in Washington and Chicago, plus an IRA he has worth almost $80,000.
Jackson, 48, will be sentenced Wednesday for looting his campaign treasury of $750,000. The government wants him to pay a $750,000 forfeiture plus restitution in the same amount.

Awww, that’s too bad...
I wonder if Jr had such a cubby hole and did they get it out already...
Obama will get us to pay for it.
what, was he secretly converting to Republican?
Tell him to take it out of the 100 million he used for his vacation.
Corzine’s gotten off easy so far (I don’t look for him to make more than a token payment relative to his wealth in the civil suit). But, Jesse’s being stripped! Racial Justice! Racial Justice! /S
Nah, Obama will just fine a church, to get the money.
Can the government fine a church? The First Amendment prohibits the federal government from making a law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.
When he gets out of prison...he will publically recant all he has done wrong and will be elected to the US Senate from Illinois.
Do you doubt it?
Seizing his homes AND his wife? Man, those Feds are COLD!
I look for obammy to give junior a full pardon prior to leaving office.

He’ll just give daddy a call to extort a large company...again.
Never going to happen . . . Obama will surely call Holder and have his [in] Justice Department cease and desist on Jackson’s property acquisition.
How much of the 750K went to Sr ?
Keep out da Jacksons!
