The FBI is investigating whether Jesse Jackson Jr. was involved in a scandal to buy and sell Obama’s senate seat:
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. reportedly is the “Senate Candidate 5” mentioned in a 76-page complaint filed by prosecutors against Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who has been accused of a pay-to-play effort to sell the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by President-elect Barack Obama. ABC News on Wednesday quoted federal law enforcement sources saying of the son of the civil rights leader is the candidate identified by the FBI as willing to spend up to $1 million to secure the Senate seat.
Jackson, who has expressed interest in being appointed to the post, is holding a press conference at 4:15 p.m. ET to respond to the suggestion, and has denied any wrongdoing.
Messy Jesse Sr. (who said he wanted to personally cut off Obama’s nutsack ) and Al Sharpton have been personally taking stacks from corporations who fear racial lawsuits and we know shadyness doesn’t fall too far from the big shady tree. We will see how the evidence unfolds and hope lil’ Messy Jesse is innocent. SMH.
