Jesse Jackson, Jr. To Resign Within the Hour

Crazy.


Jackson had planned on a press conference to announce his resignation but was not able to bring himself to speak about it because of his illness, the source said.

The announcement comes after mounting pressure faced by Jackson as federal investigators appeared to widen their ongoing investigation into the congressmans activities.

Jackson offered to raise up to $6 million to buy Obama's abandoned senate seat in 2008 from Rod Blagojevic.

Oh, Jesse Jackson Jr. just won his re-election bid despite conducting it 1) under investigation and 2) under sedation and 3) under observation. So Chicago voters have that going for them.

Remember in Miller's Crossing, when the Italian boss wants the Mayor to appoint his twin cousins, who speak no English, to a high political position (which they'll apparently share, as twins)? And first the Mayor balks but then Tom yells at him a little and he goes along with it?

Yeah, that's Jesse Jackson Jr., that's Chicago. Mob town, Machine town.

"Another man in the driver's seat of the car, identified as Adrian
Alberto Mojica Moreno, 49, of Toa Baja, died in the attack, in which at
least one gunman opened fire on the vehicle in Bayamon, according to a
statement from police.
Mojica Moreno's relationship to Camacho
wasn't immediately known, but on Wednesday, detective Alex Diaz told
ESPN.com that Mojica Moreno had nine bags of cocaine in his possession
with a 10th bag open in the Ford Mustang, which was registered to Mojica
Moreno. He had been arrested for possession of controlled substances in
April 2012, according to Diaz.
The bullet apparently struck
Camacho in the jaw but exited his head and lodged in his right shoulder
and fractured two vertebrae, Torres said. Mojica Moreno was shot right
next to his Ford Mustang as he got out and tried to flee while Camacho
was shot in the passenger's seat."

124 Running famous-name candidates is a sure winner in chump-heavy states (Mass, Minn, Ill, Cali). The GOP should do it more often.

I understand that bilking Linda McMahon out of tens of millions every cycle is *fun*, but she's not actually famous. There are several, maybe as many as eight, real celebrity Republicans.

I'd definitely run Sabrina the Teenage Witch against Elizabeth Warren next time. Move her to Salem before the residency deadline. The ads!

And porn-addicted shut-ins love that Buffy The Vampire Slayer chick. (I sense a theme.) Where are the "strong female character"-loving creeps concentrated? Probably where the serial killers are: "Cascadia." Just pick a state and send her in. Oregon? They're more celebrity-worshiping than Washington. I'd do Oregon.

Is Nicki Minaj American? Move her to Chicago before this seat gets filled. And give her more red wigs.

Lets be clear here. There are three issues at play

a. Jackson allegedly has bipolar disorder, for which he was being treated at the Mayo clinic in MN.

b. Jackson is under Federal criminal investigation for diverting campaign money for personal use.

c. Jackson has been alleged to have raised money to purchase the Blago Senate seat. Don't know if there is any pending criminal investigation there or not. . .probably not.

Even assuming he does, in fact, have bipolar disorder, its not at all clear to me why its taken months in MN to treat him. Treatment is typically done as an outpatient. So either Jackson doesn't have BPD, or his medical situation is considerably more complicated than that (or both).

I guess the theory is that if you have a Majority-Minority district, it will be represented by a minority no matter what and so there can be competition to get the best and brightest to that seat.

In reality, it's the oiliest of machine politics and no one ever challenges the machine candidate.

Just look at the awful people that populate the CBC: Corrupt, incompetent (I denounce myself) and sometimes downright stupid.

And yet the voters in that district could vote for literally anyone to replace the jerk they have in Congress and they wouldn't have to worry about dirtying themselves by voting for a white candidate or *gasp* a black Republican, but they refuse and still vote in the jerks.

I would disagree there.

If someone really is in the manic phase of BPD, their judgment may be completely destroyed, and this "could" create textbook example of where an insanity defense might apply (ie demonstrable mental illness rendering someone incapable of telling right from wrong).

I have no idea if this applies to Jackson, and lacking any specific information about the nature of the investigation against him, I'll leave it at that.

But the cover story. . .out for treatment at Mayo for months. . .doesn't jibe with the public DX of bipolar disorder his camp has put out.

Either Jackson doesn't have bipolar disorder at all but something entirely different (including "malingering"), or he does but he's got any number of other concurrent medical issues that are complicating things.

Note also that at the time his hospitalization became public, there were concurrent stories about alcoholism and severe clinical depression. That sort of thing could explain a prolonged course of therapy, and IMO provides a better explanation than the one he's put out.

232 If JJJr's plea bargain includes jail time he'll mostly likely get to keep his doctor! He was being treated at the Mayo Clinic and the Bureau of Prison has a medical facility in Rochester, Minnesota. It's for treating inmates who need specialist care plus it houses the Bureau of Prisons' psych ward.

The feds often sends newly sentenced inmates who claim medical problems to their Rochester facility for evaluation just to cover their ass. The condition gets diagnosed by a specialist and a treatment plan is set, then they
are transferred to their new home. That way no one can yell NEGLECT! especially in political situations as with the blind sheik.

Of course Gabby Giffords would have been re-elected. She also wasn't under federal investigation. And after having been shot in the face from close range and surviving, she would have been a very sympathetic candidate and would have easily cruised even after she barely won her 2010 re-elect.
