Ex-constituents ask judge to sentence Jesse Jackson Jr. to hard time
This story just gets better with every update! And this latest report about JJJr’s bitter ex-constituents wanting the book thrown at him is just the icing on the cake:
Several of former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s (D-Ill.) constituents are asking a federal judge to show him no mercy when he hands down his sentence.
The charges of using campaign funds for personal use, which Jackson has pleaded guilty to, are worse than murder, Chicago resident Gregory Ritter said in a letter to U.S. District Court Judge Robert L. Wilkins.
“[M]urder would be a lighter crime, as these defendants have used the political hopes and dreams of the constituents as a blank check for deceit,” Ritter wrote.
Southerners everywhere can’t help but feel that justice has been served – after all the nasty things JJJr said about the South, it looks like he’s getting his just rewards.
