Fund-raiser: Jackson behind $6M Senate-seat scheme :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Gov. Blagojevich

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. directed a major political fund-raiser to offer former Gov. Rod Blagojevich millions of dollars in campaign cash in return for an appointment to the U.S. Senate, sources said the fund-raiser has told federal authorities. The allegation by Oak Brook businessman Raghuveer Nayak counters public statements made as recently as last week by Jackson that he never authorized any deal to attempt to buy the Senate seat.

Nayak also told authorities he paid for two airline trips for a "social acquaintance" of the Democratic congressman at Jackson's request, raising more potential ethical and political problems for Jackson.

The hostess looks rather pleasant.

Jackson has denied any involvement in trying to bribe Blago, but has admitted his involvement with the hostess:

"The reference to a social acquaintance is a personal and private matter between me and my wife that was handled some time ago." Jackson Jr. said in a statement.

He was once considered a potential presidential candidate and now is discussing a bid to succeed Mayor Daley. His wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th), also has been mentioned as a possible mayoral candidate, though she downplayed her chances of running during a jobs rally she attended Monday.

In a radio interview about the mayor's race last week, Jackson challenged federal prosecutors to "bring it on" if they have evidence he was a conspirator in Blagojevich's corruption case.

It's too bad that he is caught up in a scandal it would never happen to his Dad. Oh wait Jessie Sr, has a love child. Opps i stand corrected.

I hope this and all the crooks get what is coming to the crooks but I know better than to hold my breath until it happens.

The total list of those in Congress is what about 15 under investigation.

One KFI Radio in LA every Thursday night Tim Conway JR, plays a Game called What the Hell did Jessie Jackson say?

You can listen on line it's pretty funny stuff. Test you hearing: KFI AM 640 More Stimulating Talk Radio

I never have liked the guy. The first time I saw him on tv I thought he just kinda acted like he was crooked. I hope they fgure it out quick and give him what he deserves.
