    Jackson Jr. was re-elected to his tenth term but last month, sources say, he applied for a disability package--what could be his only income if he resigns. It is expected to take a couple of weeks for Congress to approve or deny the request.


    His house on 72nd Street in Chicago is part of the federal government's investigation into allegations that Jackson Jr. misused campaign funds. Sources say Jackson allegedly spent $20,000 to renovate and buy furniture for the family's home in Chicago, not their 5-bedroom Victorian home in Washington D.C.

    The basement in the Chicago home has five televisions and a number of printers and copying machines, sources say. Most of the equipment was purchased in the mid-90's when Jackson was first elected, but because of flooding a couple of years ago, most, if not all, was replaced.

    Sources close to the family tell FOX 32's Darlene Hill that the congressman may be reporting the use of the space in the basement as his campaign headquarters.

    FOX 32 called the House Ethics Committee in D.C. and while they would not comment specifically on Jackson's case, the federal campaign finance law states, "a campaign committee may not rent space in the candidate's home."

    The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that the congressman's wife, Alderman Sandi Jackson, is now being investigated because she is a consultant for Jackson's campaign operation and is paid monthly. Sources say that the alderman met with the Justice Department one time and was asked a couple of questions unrelated to any federal investigation involving her or her husband.

    A Rolex watch is also part of the case against the congressman. Our sources say that the federal agents want to know where Jackson got $42,000 to pay for the watch he purchased for the woman he was having an affair with.

    Disability payments are completely exempt from income taxes. Rather ironic for a fervent tax raiser.

    Your article is disengenious, because he will retire on his Congressional pension, perhaps this disability pension, social security, and whatever else he is entitled to. The rest of the article has no bearing on his retirement disability pay, just black smooching.:eusa_boohoo:

    I recall McCain, a white ape, getting a 100% disability pension while physically able to hike in & out of the grand canyon and fly back and forth to DC from Arizona, and conduct a full blow campaign all across America. If you are really concerned, go check McCain for fraud.

    I pay no mind to dopes like him. The article is disingenuous because he disagrees with it. Wouldn't it be great if we ALL could just dismiss the facts by labeling an article disingenuous. Not one intelligent comment about Jackson and his dishonesty...just...the article is disingenuous. :clap2::badgrin:

    So, the white ape McCain is also exempt from taxes on his disability check and his VA disability compensation check while double-dipping from the government trough. I didn't hear you complaining about that white boy, so why smooch on the Black man?:badgrin:

    Why don't you take your racism elsewhere. You obviously have issues. Then again most trolls do.
