Look Who's Out of Prison
- Former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. began three months of home detention Monday and proclaimed it a "great day" to be with family and friends.
Jackson waved to onlookers Monday morning as he left the Volunteers of America Chesapeake Residential Re-entry Center, a halfway house in Baltimore. He wore a white T-shirt and khaki suit and carried sunglasses as he got into one of two black SUVs that were there for him, The Associated Press reported.
After 17 months in prison and just less than three months in the halfway house, Jackson is now confined to his Victorian-style townhouse near Washington's Dupont Circle until September.
We're sure he'll be out there peddling influence in short order.
