Protesters Call for Jesse Jackson Jr. To Resign

Bummer.
Jesse Jackson Jr. was caught on tape sobbing and hugging Governor Blagojevich at the DNC Convention in Denver this fall.
He’s probably really sobbing after it was reported that Jackson’s supporters were raising $1 million for Hot Rod Blagojevich to get him to appoint Jesse Jr. to the Senate.
And, now this…

Protesters met outside his Chicago office today shouting, “Ho ho ho, Jesse Jr.’s gotta go.”
Chicago Breaking News reported, via Free Republic:

At least some of his constituents want embattled Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. to resign.

About a dozen protesters stood outside his Chicago office today shouting, “Ho ho ho, Jesse Jr.’s gotta go.”

Protest organizer Harold Davis says he believes allegations that an emissary may have offered to raise money for Gov. Rod Blagojevich in exchange for Jackson being appointed to President-elect Barack Obama’s Senate seat.

Davis says Jackson has tainted the democratic process and his political career is over.

Others in the south side neighborhood disagree. Several passersby shouted support for Jackson and one yelled, “Leave Jesse alone.”

Pass the popcorn, Nahanni.
