On Graft, Jesse Jackson Jr., and The Black Caucus [ TLR NOTE: Hard to escape the vexing thoughts of why the OVERWHELMING majority of Blacks are corrupt — Genetics? Environment? Victims of circumstances ? (i.e. James Brosnahan of Morrison & Foerster positions 3 African-Americans — Tony West, Chris Young, Annette Carnegie — to embezzle and launder money) Subconscious desire to stabilize America as punishment for slavery?]

How did Jesse Jackson Jr. manage to illegally accumulate so much stuff over a seven-year period?

Finally brought to justice, Jackson summarized his scheme for the judge: “I used monies that should have been used for campaign purposes.” Inside the scheme, it was a far more intricate operation to convert his campaign money into personal funds.

Jackson didn’t do it alone. It wasn’t an informal arrangement. There was quite a cover up, constructed of lies and deceit.

“What is the message we are sending our children with the half-truths and deceptions.” When then-Congressman Jackson said that in 2009 he was referring to other corrupt Illinois politicians. At that very moment, Jackson himself was in the middle of a scheme built on half-truths and deceptions.

Corruption: Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s guilty plea to fraud charges raises fresh questions about the Congressional Black Caucus. It’s a group with many laudable goals, but why do so many in it succumb to corruption?

A disproportionate share of ethics cases have been brought against this exclusive club.

According to a 2012 National Journal study, five of the six lawmakers under review by the House Ethics Committee were Black Caucus members. Yet just one in 10 House members belong to the group.

It’s a familiar pattern.

In 2009, all eight lawmakers under ethics investigation were African-American. Besides Jackson, they included Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., who was later convicted of accepting gifts from donors with business before his tax-writing panel and 11 other ethics violations.

All told, the Journal says, an astonishing one-third of sitting black lawmakers have been named in an ethics probe at some point in their Hill careers.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
