He’s being treated for bipolar disorder — a mental illness that can bring depression, mania, risky behavior and delusions.
He’s had a highly publicized relationship with a “social acquaintance” that rocked his marriage.
His name is repeatedly linked to disgraced former Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
Now he’s the target of a federal investigation into “suspicious activity” into his congressional finances.
What does all this mean for Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s political future when the Nov. 6 election is a little more than three weeks away?
“He’s going to be re-elected,” political consultant Thom Serafin said. “In this particular part of the world, being a ‘D’ is so important.”
That's what we've come to in this state and country. You can be the biggest dirt bag piece of shit in the world. Completely inept at your job. Which is disturbing, when your job is representing the people of this state. But the greatest part, is that Mr. Serafin is correct. Jackson will be reelected. He will be reelected even though he has done zero campaigning. ZERO! After all, he is sick.
It almost says something about the peoples' right to vote.
