    Default Jesse Jackson Jr. won't resign until he gets disability pay

    UNBELIEVABLE!


    CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Sources tell FOX 32 News that Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is willing to give up his 2nd Congressional District seat if he's given disability when he steps down.

    Jackson Jr. was re-elected to his tenth term but last month, sources say, he applied for a disability package--what could be his only income if he resigns. It is expected to take a couple of weeks for Congress to approve or deny the request.

    His house on 72nd Street in Chicago is part of the federal government's investigation into allegations that Jackson Jr. misused campaign funds. Sources say Jackson allegedly spent $20,000 to renovate and buy furniture for the family's home in Chicago, not their 5-bedroom Victorian home in Washington D.C.

    The basement in the Chicago home has five televisions and a number of printers and copying machines, sources say. Most of the equipment was purchased in the mid-90's when Jackson was first elected, but because of flooding a couple of years ago, most, if not all, was replaced.

    Sources close to the family tell FOX 32's Darlene Hill that the congressman may be reporting the use of the space in the basement as his campaign headquarters.

    FOX 32 called the House Ethics Committee in D.C. and while they would not comment specifically on Jackson's case, the federal campaign finance law states, "a campaign committee may not rent space in the candidate's home."

    The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that the congressman's wife, Alderman Sandi Jackson, is now being investigated because she is a consultant for Jackson's campaign operation and is paid monthly. Sources say that the alderman met with the Justice Department one time and was asked a couple of questions unrelated to any federal investigation involving her or her husband.

    A Rolex watch is also part of the case against the congressman. Our sources say that the federal agents want to know where Jackson got $42,000 to pay for the watch he purchased for the woman he was having an affair with.

    I would love to know how he was even re-elected to begin with. I would think a criteria voters should use when voting for someone is whether they actually show up and do their jobs.

    Seriously, the guy has been out since what...June? He's got investigations on his funny business and I think he still won by A LOT.

    Who was running against him? Osama Adolf Bieber?

    It wasn't Osama Adolf Bieber, he would have been elected. I think he was running against Nixon Reagan Bush!

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Auto text is NOT a friendly device sometimes, D!! Auto text on a Iphone is really nasty most of the time! But, since you got what I meant, no harm, no foul, right?

    Tofurky stills rules, eh? I'll have to try it in the next 20 years or so!

    I guess just because 2 out of the last three Illinois Governors are currently in jail (and the current one SHOULD BE) you think we have political corruption in Illinois? HOW DARE YOU!
