    Just days after winning a handy reelection to his Chicago-area district, 17-year Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., D-Ill., has entered negotiations for a plea deal that would include his resignation from Congress and likely jail time.

    What else could we expect out of Chicago? Read more @ Jesse Jackson, Jr. plea deal likely to include resignation, jail time - CBS News

    Hell. He's like Pelosi. He's in a very safe district. I doubt he would have lost even if he were up on a murder charge.
