Forum: No leniency for Jacksons

Updated: August 23, 2013 6:10AM



Supporters of Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Sandi, are sending letters to the federal judge, asking for leniency and preferential treatment for them because of the work that they were paid handsomely to perform while they were stealing money!

The Jacksons are thieves, common criminals as well as hypocrites, and should not get preferential treatment, including serving their terms at different times, at their sentencing next month.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson and wife are capable of watching their grand children while Jesse Jr. and Sandi do time, just like too many other convicted politicians in Illinois.
