Jesse Jackson, Jr. pleaded guilty to Campaign Fund misappropriation. He stole $750,000 from his campaign fund. He purchased (silly, insane) items such as Michael Jackson memorabilia (think his bowler hat) after he died, a cashmere fur cape costing $15-20,000, Van Halen's guitar, and of course, the famous $45,000 Rolex watch that he gave as a present to his jump-off.

His wife, Sandy, pleaded guilty to filing a false income tax report.

Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. pleaded guilty early Wednesday to conspiring with his wife, Sandi Jackson, to spend $750,000 in federal campaign funds on themselves, using the money to buy everything from a $43,350 Rolex watch to a $4,600 fedora that once belonged to Michael Jackson. Sandi Jackson, a former Chicago alderman, also entered a guilty plea to one count of tax fraud connected to the same allegations. Jackson, the son of famed civil rights leader and former Democratic presidential candidate Jesse Jackson, could face years in prison. He has already resigned from Congress, after seeking psychological treatment as the investigation neared its conclusion. Leaving the courthouse, Jackson told reporters, "Tell everybody back home I'm sorry I let 'em down, OK?" Here, three takeaways the pundits see in Jackson's meteoric rise and spectacular fall:
Thank you NNQueen, like the grade school teachers used to say "I'm so late, I'm marked absent" Lawd Ha Mercy, what is with these negroes, in power??????? I thought the brother was no sell out, now the mental health ish was a cover to get sympathy or his conscious whippin his behind, into depression.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
