“There is nothing more painful to me … than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”
– Jesse Jackson
In four weeks, Jesse’s son will be sentenced for defrauding the people of Illinois and stealing $750,000.
On Tuesday, the court announced the new date was Aug. 14.
The former congressman faces up to four years in prison and his wife, former Ald. Sandi Jackson, up to 18 months. The disgraced former political power couple pleaded guilty in February to looting Jesse Jackson Jr.’s campaign fund of $750,000. They will be sentenced in Washington, D.C., where the FBI investigation originated.
Jesse Sr. has recently determined that (not-guilty) George Zimmerman is the root of all evil.
