Obama Administration prosecutors have allowed Democrat Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. to plea down charges to those that will bring a 4+ year prison sentence for pilfering three quarters of a million in campaign funds (which, of course, Obama himself has never been suspected of doing).

Young, handsome, articulate, and politically connected to the Civil Rights movement, Jackson dilutes the Obama Brand as the hopey-changey dark man in charge, and so, has been multiply disgraced and will now be moved safely aside for the remainder of Obama's term.

I'm glad you are attracted to Jesse.

I wonder what Jr. did to piss off the establishment.

Also, I don't think Rev. Jesse Jackson (Sr.) and Obama like each other. Remember the open mic incident where the good Reverend said, referring to Obama, that he wanted to "cut his nuts off" because he was "tellin' niggas how to act"? Keep in mind "cut his nuts off" there isn't some randomly chosen act of violence; it's a euphemism for "take away his political power".

Jackson had probably dreamed of his son being the man to achieve what Obama was achieving. Also, from Jackson's perspective, Obama is an outsider, not someone who came out of the Civil Rights Movement, and not even descended from American Slavery. He was some outsider, who acts and talks like a white man (and at that moment, was telling African Americans to stop acting so different than whites).

Obama recognized the Jacksons as his enemies, and did what he needed to do.

What makes him different though? He's not the only one.

Old school race pimp's son gets destroyed by Choco-Jesus's agenda.

The most interesting aspect of this entire fiasco will be the democrat party's realization that they sold their soul for Urkel. That won't happen until the midterm elections.

That seems more likely.

The Right won't be winning any elections until they decide to vote. If I'm not mistaken, Romney had fewer votes than McCain (and Obama fewer than his first time).

So now that Jackson is out of the way (until Obama pardons him on the way out the door in three years), the person who got elected just happens to have a close friend of Obama's as her campaign manager.
Quote:
Robin Kelly won today’s Illinois Democratic primary for the vacated seat of former U.S. Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. in a race that centered on gun control and the role of outside money in political campaigns.

The Democratic winner is expected to prevail in the April 9 special election in a Chicago district that voted 81 percent for President Barack Obama in November.

Chicago Democrats: it's like corruption bukkake, all over the face of the American people.
Quote:
The downfall of the couple, once viewed as a budding Chicago powerhouse, derailed the Jackson family’s role in politics. Jackson Jr., scion of the iconic civil-rights family led by the Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr., was often mentioned for higher office.

Jesse Jackson Jr.’s political fortunes started to shift shortly after Obama won the White House in 2008, when the congressman pressed to replace the president-elect in the U.S. Senate and was caught up in the scandal surrounding former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich’s attempts to sell the seat.

The vote to replace Jackson recalled the 1995 special election in which the younger Jackson filled a vacancy left by Mel Reynolds, who was convicted of bank fraud and sexual assault. Out of prison since President Bill Clinton pardoned him in 2001, Reynolds was one of the Democratic candidates on the ballot in today’s contest.

The new Congresswoman is connected to Obama, Emannuelle, et al. (Good ol Chicago politics), and outside money (from Bloomberg, for example) helped her outspend her closest rival by multiple orders of magnitude. This, from a local magazine a month before the election:
Quote:
Who has the inside track? I’d say Robin Kelly, 56, of Matteson—which is in the 2nd District—who has just announced that Cheryl Whitaker will chair her campaign.

If Whitaker's name sounds familiar, it’s because she and her husband, Eric Whitaker, are extremely close friends of Michelle and Barack Obama. (Both are physicians, and he, until recently, was an executive at the University of Chicago Medical Center, Michelle’s last employer.) And the Obamas are close, at least professionally, to Rahm Emanuel. When I interviewed Cheryl Whitaker in November 2008 she was director of preventive cardiology at Rush University Medical Center; last week she left her job at Merge Healthcare as chief medical officer, explaining that she wants to write a book and help a friend (that would be Kelly) win a seat a in Congress. Crain’s Shia Kapos reports that Whitaker and Kelly met while working on Obama’s U.S. Senate campaign.

The ties to the Obamas may yield, if not outright endorsements—unusual in a primary—then the kind of under-the-table help that the Daley brothers gave to Rahm in his campaign to win the mayor’s office. Whitaker was quoted in the announcement of her joining the Kelly campaign as saying, “There is no better candidate in the race to stand with President Obama, Mayor Emanuel and Chairman Preckwinkle” in ridding Chicago and “the Southland” of “dangerous weapons.” (Kelly’s last job was as a top aide to Preckwinkle.)
