How convenient. Corrupt Illinois Democrat Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., who will spend the next 2 1/2 years in jail for spending $750,000 of his campaign funds to buy himself mounted elk heads, fancy jewelry and other stuff, conveniently developed a 'mood disorder' which qualifies him for government disability pay. Yes, indeedy, Jesse will get a check for $8,700 per MONTH for his so-called mental issues. I know people who deserve to be on disability who never qualified, and yet he gets that amount while in jail for corruption? He will also get some of his federal pension. $45,000.00
Something is seriously wrong with the system!
Mama Jackson Jr., Sandi, will also spend some time in the clinker for helping cover up her husband's fraud. Nice example to set for their offspring.
By the way, Jesse made it to Judicial Watch's list of the 'Top Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians'.
