Market Watch reported:

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., an Illinois Democrat, is expected to resign his House seat on Wednesday, according to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times. Jackson, who has recently been treated for bipolar depression, is expected to hand in his resignation to House Speaker John Boehner, the Sun-Times reported, citing a source close to Jackson. Jackson hasn’t been active in politics for more than five months, but won re-election earlier this month with 63% of the vote.

    This shameful man being re-elected with 63% is what is wrong with America.

    Well that’s a start I suppose – now, if only the Rev (snort!) Jackson, Sharpton, Reid, Pelosi, Kucinich, Soetoro, would follow suit…

    Good widdance to bad wubbish…

    Another proud chapter in Democrat Party history. But never worry. They’ll find the next batsh*t moron to fill his seat in 3. . . 2. . . 1. . .

    Kucinich is out in January, due to gerrymandering.

    What do idiots do? Keep electing corrupt politicians in exchange for a few cents in their pockets and lots of outrage pandering. Sad day for America.

    Remember to judge them by the content of their character. Not only this piece of garbage, but all the subeducated, subprime parasites who voted for him and the grifter at 1600.

    In a few more weeks, we’ll be reading that he knocked her up, beat her up, then gave her up.

    Does resigning from THIS congress mean he is NOT going to be in the NEXT congress?

    The referenced article simply does not answer this simple question.

  • Granny

    Too bad he didn’t do this BEFORE the election when his opponent could have rightfully won the election rather than turn the seat into a crony appointment.

  • Patty

    Who didn’t see this coming. Oh, what secrets he has.

  • jony101

    he looks a thug with his prision tattoo. His district is very dumb if they keep reelecting that fool, even after he is under investigation.
    Some people will vote for someone because of the color of there skin instead of there character. they are fools. the citizens of his district should pay for his golden parachute instead of making the american taxpayer pay him. He dont deserve nothing, maybe time in prision for corruption.

    …and the dude didn’t even have the sack to read a statement. His “illness” (hahahahah!) prevented him from taking up the mic. F’ng. Coward.
