    Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. in Talks for Plea Deal - ABC News



    If guilty I sure hope such a deal includes his losing his seat. Did anyone run against him? I know he won with a huge margin.

    Campaign finance violations, small potatos for a Chicago thug, no reason to resign over a little thing like that.

    He get's a plea deal because he's a Democrat/Black. If he was White and/or a Republican, it'd be the full sentence, no matter what.

    Resignation will probably be part of his plea deal. he's probably going to try to wing it so he picks his successor.

    Kind of par for the course for that district. He took the job from Mel Reynolds, who was convicted of having sex with a teen and misusing campaign funds. Mel got the job from Gus Savage, who groped a Peace Corps worker in Zaire.

    If he did any of the things he is charged with it only raises
    his status with his peeps.

    Gives him street cred.

    This is probably true.

    But his peeps get thrown in jail for things that a white kid from Evanston would get probation and therapy for, so maybe they have a reason to be cynical.

    If this is true it's an embarrassment for the entire democratic party.
