Jackson And Wife Plead Guilty To Federal Charges

Jesse Jackson, Jr. recently resigned his seat in Congress representing a Chicago area district, and his wife, Sandi, resigned her seat on the Chicago city council after a federal investigation targeted both of them for misusing campaign funds. According to their attorneys, former Rep. Jackson is pleading guilty to wire fraud, mail fraud and false statement charges over the use of $750,000 in campaign funds for personal use, and Sandi is pleading guilty to one count of filing false tax returns, both of which were formally filed against the couple yesterday. He faces up to five years in prison and a fine of $250,000, while she faces up to three years in prison and a fine of $250,000. The Jackson's old nemesis, President Barack Obama, just happened to be in Chicago yesterday to give another phony emotional speech aimed as part of his goal of taking away all Americans' Second Amendment right to own firearms as the federal charges were officially announced. The Jacksons learned the hard way that Barry will never shy away from using the power of government to destroy anyone he views as a political enemy.
