    I believe in family values, but not at the public's expense. The Jesse Jackson clan has brought "buy one get one (not so) free" to new levels. Even the Clintons are impressed:


    [size=+5]Jesse Jackson Jr. Pays Campaign Funds to Chicago Alderman Wife [/size]

    By Timothy J. Burger

    May 21 (Bloomberg) -- Representative Jesse Jackson Jr.’s congressional campaign organization has paid his wife at least $247,500 since 2001, including at least $95,000 after Sandra Jackson joined the Chicago City Council two years ago, according to federal election records.

    Jackson’s political committee also gave at least $298,927 in cash and in-kind contributions to Sandra Jackson’s campaign fund, which bankrolled her races for a city council seat that pays more than $100,000 per year and an unpaid position on the Cook County Democratic Committee.

    Sandra Jackson, known as Sandi, received the $95,000 for political consulting after pledging during her campaign to give “my full attention” to the alderman’s post.

    The Jesse Jackson clan making money the old-fashioned way: stealing it.

    Thats how that whole family supports itself, Jessie Jackoff hasn't held an honest job since he was a teenager, when Jessie found out BEING A RACIST pays big bucks he was off and running and of course nobody dares to call him 'a racist" because if they do they themselves will be called "racist"

    Jessie Jackoff and his whole clan are racist scum.

    Whoopty do.

    The $630 per week he paid her to consult just would have gone into a few more TV commercials That's how campaign donations are spent, TV, staff, and sometimes other candidates.

    I'd swear that's the real reason you nitwitcons hate Kennedy, Reid and Pelosi. All of them rake in tons of money in donations and don't have to spend heavily defending their seats. So there's lots of other Democrats that benefit from them, democrats that might just loose if they weren't blessed with some of those three's extra money.

    This is a fairly common practice..

    Two words: CHICAGO POLITICS.

    Nothing new going on there...any politics from that part of the country is skirting the legal/illegal and moral/immoral lines.

    It is american politics, it happens all the time.. it is not specific to Chicago.. why would you think that?? It is not against any laws, in the Jackson Case he got an opinion for the Fed Election Commission.

    They all do it, on all five government levels(local, county, state, federal, international). It's when they get greedy and piss off someone that it becomes a "problem" and there has to be "action".

    Jesse Jackson's last real job was as a restaurant worker where he gleefully spit in the salads of customers before serving them.

    Theft is theft. Illegal misuse of campaign donations is illegal. He breaks the law routinely and continues to skate away because everybody is afraid to call him on it. Afraid of the infamous Jesse Jackson attack machine: the media gives him a free platform any time he wants it just because he happened to be with Martin Luther King when he was murdered. White guilt gives Jackson a free hand to ply his gangster tactics. Mafias around the world have learned from Jesse Jackson.

    Just because others break the law doesn't excuse Jackson or anybody else. Breaking the law is breaking the law.

    Can you imagine if Sarah Palin or Bush or Cheney had ever done something like this?????? The screams for "impeachment" would drown out everything else in the news 24/7/365.

    Did I say they were excused from breaking the law? No I did not. I said it was commonplace across all levels of government :rolleyes:

    Don't hurt your back jumping to conclusions :rolleyes:

    Same goes for Republicans when Democrats break the rules...last time it led to the impeachment of Bill Clinton :rolleyes:

    And moron cultists are morons. Do you even read the links you dump all over this place? I ask because if you had read the link in this particular thread you'd have noted that no claim is made to the action being illegal.

    Once again you read an article, and extrapolate a whole bunch of BS from it...there are no indications that there is any talk of illegal behavior... currently there are 97 people in congress doing the same thing.. 53 of which are from the party of family values.. this stuff happens all the time.. in your world you choose selective prosecution based on a person's lineage, perceived politics or skin color rather than looking at the actual law.. everything does not work the way you want it to or appears to be.

    I really do not think anyone is afraid of Jesse Jackson Jr., in fact the opposite is usually true...someone is always gunning for the big prize either through the print press or the TV media... in this case he checked with the Federal Election Commision before he did this.. he did this in 2001 when George Bush was in charge of the executive branch or gov't.

    Once again you exhibit sheeple behavior and respond to something that was captioned on Drudge.. or democratsaresuckylawbreakers.com

    Then speak gooder next time so's I know what you're meaning is. :D


    Yeah, Clinton lied to a grand jury after taking an under-age volunteer intern under his Oval Office desk .... making Yassir Arafat wait while she finished her "job". But even still, impeachment with no removal ... after a president lied to a grand jury!!! Nixon was hounded out of office for not knowing that his amateur spy team had cracked Geo McGovern's campaign office as they looked for the secret conversations McGovern was having with Kim Il Sung in North Korea and Fidel Castro in Cuba.

    Bill Clinton messes up his own family while sending the exact WRONG message to the world and especially the teenagers of the world about what dignified honorable president should be ... and he skates. Meanwhile, Nixon gets crucified for trying to save America from a possible surrender of a McGovern presidency to North Korea and the Soviet Union.

    Yup, nothing wrong with that picture. :rolleyes:

    So I guess that is as best as we can expect from the fogmeister after he posts another hysterical thread.. based on the way he thinks the world works.. rather than the way it does.
