The Chicago-Sun Times today is reporting that Jesse Jackson Jr.'s actions are being reviewed by Office of Congressional Ethics. These actions stem from his
alleged involvement with ex-IL. Governor Rod Blagojevich's attempts to sell Obama's vacant Senate seat. To make a long story short, Blagojevich was trying to sell something illegally (the seat) and Jackson allegedly showed interest in purchasing that seat (illegally). Jackson and his people are going to say, "Of course I was interested in being the Senator, but I never discussed doing anything illegal to obtain the seat or engaging in any 'pay to play' activity." The Sun-Times, and Blagojevich's previous investigation seem to hint that there is cause to believe that Jackson had more-or-less begun negotiations for obtain the seat (illegally).
When reached for comment regarding the investigation, Jackson said: "I look a lot like Herschel Walker. Furthermore, my dad was with MLK when he got shot then used that fame to run a glorified Ponzi scheme for 40 years. Clearly, I have done no wrong."
