You’ve got to be kidding me. Seriously, this lowlife is heading for prison but will get disability pay? What’s his disability, getting caught?
Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. may soon know his fate with the federal government.
On Thursday, FOX 32 first reported the congressman would spend some time in jail and he may be ready to sign off on a plea agreement.
Jackson is a free man for now, but how long will that last? Source close to the family tell FOX 32′s Darlene Hill that if he hasn’t already reached an agreement with the feds, he’s pretty close.
One of the things he was asking for was a disability package and sources say, he got it.
Before handing in his letter of resignation and giving up his seat in the 2nd District, Jackson applied for his disability package. That was done in mid-October, after Jesse Jackson Jr. checked out of the Mayo Clinic where he was being treated for bi-polar disorder.
Sources say the former congressman received that approval letter in November just days before giving up the congressional seat he’d held since 1995.
The feds have been talking to Jesse Jackson Jr. since the end of April. Sources say he went into a deep depression in June–at times crying uncontrollably. He hired a prominent Chicago attorney in august to negotiate a plea agreement.
