Jesse Jackson Jr. was accused earlier this month of using campaign cash to buy his girlfriend a $40,000 Rolex.

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. turned in a resignation letter today.
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.

  • karra

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

  • UninformedElectorate

    Good widdance to bad wubbish…

  • Adirondack Patriot

    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. . .

  • Mad Hatter

    He resigns, after……… he was guaranteed his tax payer funded, Government goodies.

    Kucinich is out in January, due to gerrymandering.

    What payout doers he receive each year for continuing to do nothing. Am I being racist?

    One down…a Congressional Black Caucus of idiots and crooks to go.

  • democraps suck

    Just another crooked lying black politician

  • myohmy

    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.

  • kato

    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.

    Where is Clyburn talking about all the racial code words bashing this nagger?

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

  • Freddy

    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.

  • Brave Sir Robin

    …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.

  • coolidgerules

    He didn’t resign because there was no time to put another Dem on the ticket. Now Quinn gets to put his choice in office. Wonder how many bidders there are for the seat. These “people” have no shame. The “people” who voted him in have no shame. It ain’t a political party any more. It is a criminal enterprise.

    *Video* Obama absolves Thanksgiving turkey with the Sign of the Cross

    Wait, wait, let me guess: The turkeys head starts spinning around and it vomits green soup all over Obambi, grunting, “You are Satan’s spawn!!”

  • Adirondack Patriot

    Will Debbie Wassenberg now proclaim: “Because of Jesse Jackson Jr.’s criminal actions, Congress is now more white.”

    JJJ is racist.

  • Basil Duke

    This parasite was literally institutionalized in a mental hospital on election day (and was for most of the previous five months) and still overwhelmingly won. THAT’S the Chicago Way, writ large.

  • hermie

    So which of Obama’s Chicago minions will be given this lifetime Congressional seat? JJ’s wife? A buddy of Rahm’s? Or will it just go to the highest bidder?

  • Bitter Clinger

    IL is a laughing stock. J3 is just an obvious and obtuse symptom. As I said previously, the GOP could have put Jesus Christ on the ticket and J3 would still have won handily. His district is full of sheeple and always will be. It’s the Chicago way…… residing at 1600 Chicago Way D.C.

  • hermie

    Wait a sec…Michelle has always wanted more power and as a member of Congress she’ll get choice committee assignments and plenty of Congressional goodies.

    Think that’s a joke? C’mon…nothing would prevent Obama from installing his wife. Residency in the district? Doesn’t matter in Illinois and especially in Chicago. Tammy Duckworth had to get a special district gerrymandered for her before she could actually win an election. Some Illinois judge will shamelessly rule in the Obama’s favor.

  • saveus

    He’s a DeM?
    what a shock!

  • DecentAmerican

    So how did ths man, who was in a mental institution and unfit to serve, who has a long history of corruption, manage to win this last election in the first place? Or, in Michigan, his can a known felon win has election?

    Are there that many stupid people in America, so stupid to vote for thus trash?

    Oh wait, they are Democrats, so I guess that answers that question.

    Good riddance for this racist trash Jackson.

    Woe woe Woe woe…JJ Jr Dynomite will make millions remaking

    eh, he gets plenty of rest at his Vila..

    [The first lady could also be seen with other American politician, known for Obama, who hosts these days in a private house in Marbella: Jesse Louis Jackson Jr., Democrat member of House of Representatives of the United States, son of activist and former Presidential candidate Jesse Jackson and also the national coordinator of the presidential campaign of Barack Obama.

    Several Arab royal families also spend their summers in Marbella for years. Thus, there will be a meeting between Michelle Obama and Prince Salman bin Abdelaziz, governor of Riyadh and brother of the late King Fahd of Saudi Arabia, while another meeting deck of the first lady the owner of Málaga CF, a billionaire businessman, son of Qatar’s Interior Minister and member of the Qatari royal family, Abdullah Al Thani.]

    memorable flashback..


  • bigL

    no, he cries now when he speaksa in public, But seriously folks…
    I think he gets pension “enhancement”, by waiting after election.
    and like the Obama Senate seat, he can ‘help”pick the successor..
    Like Blago– Not gonna give that away, Huh?.

    0bama promised JJJ gay sex with arabs/socialists/camels/communists and offered to cook his own dog and feed it to JJJ if he resigned office. …looks like JJJ took him up on the offer.
    JJJ response when he heard about what 0bama was offering him was:
