JJJr Sinks Blago?

  • Rod Blagojevich has called U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. “repugnant,” a liar, and a “really bad guy.” Then he called him to the witness stand. It was a gamble for the former governor to ask his onetime nemesis to testify Wednesday as the first defense witness in his retrial, one that ultimately didn’t seem to pay off.

    As he took the stand on an electrified day that also saw the testimony of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Jackson’s remarks initially appeared helpful. In contrast to what a government witness’ testimony suggested, Jackson said he in no way knew about or authorized anyone to offer Blagojevich money in exchange for the Senate seat.

    Jackson’s testimony then devolved as he leveled an allegation against the ex-governor, mocked Blagojevich, and appeared as if he were enjoying it.
The entire article is Illinois/Chicago politics writ large, right down to Blago demanding $25,000 and the payback when he doesn't get it. "F#$%-ing Golden" indeed. Hopefully, the government got it right this time and Blago will be doing a number of years in the Federal pen.

Blago is as dirty as the day is long. Even a first grader could see it. This time Blago will not be so lucky.

Off topic - great job by the two sergeants in 003 for killing the would be robber shitbird and apprehending the other. One sergeant killed one shitbird while the other sergeant chased and caught the other shitbird. Nice to see theirs still working sergeants out here with us working coppers.

JJJJr Sinks Blago? JJJJr, just like JJJSr is a pos. Blago should not go to jail on JJJJr's word. For cripe's sake! JJJJr's word is about as good as a Western Avenue used car salesman's word when the salesman has not sold a car in the current month and it is 2200 hours on the 31st!

Both Blago and Jesse Jr are dirt bags. I wouldn't trust either one of them. When Jesse got caught romancing that bar maid in DC that put a stop to his rise in politics. Surprised wife Sandi didn't have him castrated.

So Jackson Jr. Knew he was 25,000 short for the wifes job, and eight years later he thinks the Senate seat is a freebie Can he be this stupid?
Anyway he looked stupid trying to raise that Million for Blago.

Interesting reading is a book called "Shakedown: Exposing The Real Jesse Jackson" You'll see the apple doesn't fall from the tree with JJ Sr and JJ Jr.

I would love it if Rod ends up in the same prison as George Ryan.

What does it say for us when 4 of the last 7 Governors of IL end up doing federal time? We won't even get into the number of alderman who have gone to prison in the last 40 years.

JJ Jr. threw that $25,000 statement with the Elvis connotation in merely as a payback to Blago.
No fan of either but I wish Fitz would call his bluff when JJ Jr. challenged Fitz to indict him if he thinks he solicited a payment.
Apparently upon orders from the US Atty. Holder (via Obama) he was told to lay off JJ Jr.
The next day, a 'leak' of JJ Jr's infidelity made the news.
It's not the same Pat, he's just as guilty as Blago.
You want REAL justice... go after JJ Jr. & Sr., Madigan and Daley himself, then I'll be the first to say you are your own man when it come to prosecutions.
For now me thinks DC pulls your strings.
Please prove me wrong.
Get all those thieving pols!

Jesse Junior doesn't need to sink Blago. Blago's MOUTH is going to sink Blago.
Putting Rod on the stand today was a giant mistake.

I'm suprised Jr. hasn't added a "Rev" to his name. that would make him more credible to some folks !!!

Extortion by rev's seems less distasteful (to a large number of folks).

One thief helping to "sink" another "flim flam" man.

Send them all to "jump suit" land.

it's time for a "big city mayor" to hit the shithouse. Prison Guards can help release a number of CPD guards so they can go back to street duty instead of high paid valets doing errands for shanks & maggie.

I wonder if shanks remembers how to wipe his ass ????

OT -

It is against Federal Immigration Law to have ANY "sanctuary' cities in the USA.

Just like a child who needs discipline and rules to grow into a productive adult, illegals need to be prosecuted and sent back to their own country because it is AGAINST THE LAW.

Thanks to liberals and cowardly politicians, illegals believe they are "entitled" to everything American CITIZENS have, at OUR expense!

What the fuck, the old man Jessie Sr. extorted Augie Busch for a million dollar a year distributorship on the north side. Jessie Jr. also wanted a big job for the old lady but didn't want to pay the piper. Fuck them, and this is how the pols have been doing business for ages. Never mind the donations how about good old untracable cash.
