    Jesse Jackson, Jr. pleaded guilty to Campaign Fund misappropriation. He stole $750,000 from his campaign fund. He purchased (silly, insane) items such as Michael Jackson memorabilia (think his bowler hat) after he died, a cashmere fur cape costing $15-20,000, Van Halen's guitar, and of course, the famous $45,000 Rolex watch that he gave as a present to his jump-off.

    His wife, Sandy, pleaded guilty to filing a false income tax report.

    Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. pleaded guilty early Wednesday to conspiring with his wife, Sandi Jackson, to spend $750,000 in federal campaign funds on themselves, using the money to buy everything from a $43,350 Rolex watch to a $4,600 fedora that once belonged to Michael Jackson. Sandi Jackson, a former Chicago alderman, also entered a guilty plea to one count of tax fraud connected to the same allegations. Jackson, the son of famed civil rights leader and former Democratic presidential candidate Jesse Jackson, could face years in prison. He has already resigned from Congress, after seeking psychological treatment as the investigation neared its conclusion. Leaving the courthouse, Jackson told reporters, "Tell everybody back home I'm sorry I let 'em down, OK?" Here, three takeaways the pundits see in Jackson's meteoric rise and spectacular fall:

    There aren't many subjects we haven't tackled already, lol... and there's no dearth of information in the Destee.com archives; available through Search. I've also noticed a new feature when posting a new Thread, a pop-up or fall-out provides a link to similar topics.


    Peace In Alarm Clock,

    And yet, that link says nothing about Van Halen's guitar.... :11200:

    Everything to be known on a subject is rarely covered in one link. In fact, having read that article, as a Midwesterner, I can tell you all 3 opinions are "slightly" off-base. :)

    Prosecutors seek forfeiture of homes owned by Jesse Jackson Jr.


    (Reuters) - Prosecutors asked a federal judge on Friday to allow two houses owned by disgraced former Illinois Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife to be subject to forfeiture, ahead of the couple's sentencing next week.
    Jackson pleaded guilty in February to misusing campaign funds while his wife, Sandi, a former Chicago city council member, pleaded guilty to filing false tax returns that failed to report the campaign money as income.
