After revealing that the revvvvvvvvvverend Jesse Jackson’s son Jesse Jr has been hiding out at the Mayo clinic while being treated for bi-polar disorder and “gastrointestinal issues” for the past several months, he came out today and decided to quit his job as congressman from Chicago. Apparently the stress of a federal investigation, and making back room deals with the mob in Chicago were just too much for his delicate constitution?
There had been widespread speculation about what was going on with Jesse Jr since he hadn’t been seen in public for several months, and it was revealed that he had been the subject of a federal investigation. Despite all of this information, the leftist voters in Chicago re-elected Jesse Jr in a landslide in the recent election, probably because they would rather vote for a dead Democrat than a live Republican any day of the week.
For Republicans who think they have an opportunity to win Jesse’s now vacant seat — Forget it. This is Chicago we’re talking about, and they raise the dead to keep corrupt Democrats in office there. If Marion Barry was any indication of what will happen, Jesse Jr will probably come back and be elected again once all of his legal problems are in the rear view mirror.
Get well soon Jesse Jr….
