Jesse Jackson Jr Charged With Stealing $750,000 In Campaign Cash Used To Purchase "Fur Capes And Parkas" And Much More

Tyler Durden's picture




 

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 for the handful of people who are unaware, 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.

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.

From Bloomberg:

No court dates have been set.

 

William Miller, a spokesman for U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen in Washington, declined to comment on the charges.

 

Jackson’s wife will plead guilty to one count of tax fraud, her lawyers, Dan Webb and Tom Kirsch of Winston & Strawn LLP, said in a statement.

 

“Ms. Jackson has accepted responsibility for her conduct, is deeply sorry for her actions, and looks forward to putting this matter behind her and her family,” according to the statement.

Jackson, who ended a career of almost 17 years in the U.S. Congress by resigning in November, won a special election for a vacant House seat in 1995 and began serving on Dec. 12 of that year. He subsequently never garnered less than 81 percent of the general-election vote in his district on Chicago’s South Side until last year when he won a 10th House term with 63 percent.

 

His wife resigned her Chicago alderman seat last month.

 

Jackson was a national co-chairman of President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign and an advocate of traditional Democratic Party constituencies. He pushed to maintain government support for the poor, including welfare, assistance for heating bills and the Head Start early education program.

 

Jackson was caught up in the scandal surrounding former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s attempts to sell an appointment to Obama’s former Senate seat. Identified in court papers as “Senate Candidate 5” who was willing to raise money for the governor’s re-election, Jackson denied the allegations and said he wasn’t a target in the federal probe.

 

Blagojevich was convicted in June 2011 and sentenced to 14 years in prison.

 

Educated at the elite Washington prep school St. Albans, Jackson graduated from North Carolina A&T State University in 1987. He earned a master’s degree in theology from Chicago Theological Seminary and a law degree from University of Illinois College of Law.

And since everyone only wants to know just what "memorabilia" and other trinkets he spent $750,000 of taxpayer money on, here is the list from the conspiracy charge:

  • $43,350 gold-plated Rolex;
  • $9,587.64 worth of children's furniture;
  • $5,150 worth of fur capes and parkas
  • $1,553 porcelain collector's items

And then this:

wait, my new favorite part is closer to the post:

Jackson made it to Congress in 1995 after winning a special election triggered by the resignation of Representative Mel Reynolds, who was convicted of sexual assault, obstruction of justice and solicitation of child pornography. Reynolds is now vying for the seat again in a Feb. 26 Democratic primary (pardoned by clinton).

maybe reynolds can win and when he is jailed again jesse jr. may be pardoned to get back in congress.

I’m surprised that Tyler hasn’t yet posted that the squid is being investigated for slaughtering Muppets out of season. 

"Securities regulators on Friday filed suit against unknown traders in the options of ketchup maker H.J. Heinz Co, alleging they traded on inside information before the company announced a deal to be acquired for $23 billion by Warren…"

The article goes on to say Goldman Sacs is in the SEC's crosshairs.

This is some BS theater.  My guess is the have this fake trial and he is acquitted.  Like Charlie Rangel and Maxine Waters.   Why?  Obummer sending a warning to Jesse Sr?  

No way he gets convicted of anything unless obama and rahm want him convicted.  There are no real laws or law enforcement especailly in Chicago.

During a Google hangout Thursday night, President Barack Obama was asked about his administration deporting “record numbers” of illegal immigrations during his first term. His poorly phrased response sounded more like something you might expect from Vice President Joe Biden.

“This is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency,” Obama said. “The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.”

"The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States.My job is to execute laws that are passed.”

I'm sure he's contemplating some Executive Order to fix that.

No need, with the support of the Idiocracy:

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions and laughed delightedly at his licentiousness and thought it very superior of him to acquire vast amounts of gold illicitly. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the 'new, wonderful good society' which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean 'more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.' Julius was always an ambitious villain, but he is only one man."

Call Rev. Sharpton! Call Daddy Jackson. Time to march for justice! A blatant racist prosecution of a hospitalized victim of insidious, I mean invidious, entrapment of our duly elected representative! Will ALL of our black Illinois leader go to jail? No ! We want justice! Rehabilitation! Not enslavement! This man needs a Doctor, not a prosecutor! How much left in the campaign chest? Hmmm, reparations too!

He'll get off with a stern censure.  Convenient to stash him in a mental institution until after the election and hide behind medical privacy laws.
