Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. Fingered and Charged With Theft of $750,000

Source: Zero Hedge      Feb.16, 2013

And so the surreal criminal saga of former Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. (“JJJR”, “Junior” or just “Jackson”) has ended. Jackson, 47, a prominent Chicagoan son of the civil-rights leader of the same name, was a national co-chairman of President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign and an advocate of traditional Democratic Party constituencies.

He disappeared in June, and it was later revealed that he was being treated at the Mayo Clinic for bipolar disorder and gastrointestinal issues, although now it appears kleptomania may have been one of the afflictions treated too.

He returned to his Washington home in September but went back to the clinic the next month. As Bloomberg summarizes, “he pushed to maintain government support for the poor, including welfare, assistance for heating bills and the Head Start early education program.”

He certainly was very generous with other people’s money. Jesse Jackson Jr.2

So generous, in fact, that hours ago he was charged with “misusing”, also known as stealing, some $750,000 in campaign funds for purchases including a $43,350 gold Rolex watch, $5,150 for fur capes and parkas, $9,588 worth of “children’s furniture”, Michael Jackson and Bruce Lee memorabilia and much more.

At the same time Jackson’s wife, Sandra Stevens Jackson, was charged in a separate case with filing false tax returns. She faces a maximum penalty of three years in prison. Junior’s charge has a maximum term of five years in prison.

More importantly, he is sorry (to be caught, we can only surmise): “I want to offer my sincerest apologies to my family, my friends and all of my supporters for my errors in judgment and while my journey is not yet complete, it is my hope that I am remembered for the things that I did right.”

We hope Jackson’s career-ender is a shining beacon of light what happens when the “misuse” of other people’s money is finally exposed, especially, as the case may be, when once it finally all runs out.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
