Quote of the Day
Former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr (D-IL / Rainbow/PUSH) at his hearing pleading guilty for a number of federal offenses.
“Sir, for years I lived off my campaign,” Jackson told the judge. “I used money I shouldn’t have used for personal purposes.”
“I did those things,” he said more than once, referring to the information provided by the prosecutor.
At 11:12 a.m. EST, the judge officially declared him guilty.
Funny, I guess learning off his father — who’s been rumored to been doing the same from Rainbow PUSH for decades — doesn’t pay off. Makes you wonder how up-to-date Gwen Moore’s campaign books are.
It’s been how her son and sister have been making their living for years.
