Fire? At Junior's House?
While we certainly hope that everyone got out ok, we can't help but wonder that so soon after a sweeping indictment of Illinois and Chicago politics is released, a mysterious fire breaks out at the home of someone who's been feeding information to the feebs about a sitting governor since 2003 after a $25,000 "dishonorarium" was solicited for a state job.
We certainly hope Fitzgerald subpoenas the debris and ashes and finds out what was lost in the blaze.
UPDATE: From WBBM 780:
A small fire started at the home of U. S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. on the South Side.
At 12:15 a.m. Chicago Fire Department’s truck 49, Engine 126 and Battalion Chief 17 responded to a fire in the 2500 block of East 72nd Street, police said.
[...] The origin of the fire was underneath the main fireplace in the residence. The homeowners are listed in a police report as U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th), police said.
