The people of that south side Chicago district deserve to live in a ghetto slum full of murders for electing this incompetent boob over and over again. they are star fuckers and saw the name Jesse Jackson and pull the lever.
This....They couldn't care less....everyone knew what Jesse was up to before the election...no way were they going to let "da man" tell them not to vote for this race pimp. The jackson's and sharp ton's of the world have been getting away with all kinds of shit because YT is afraid of the"racist" label.
He's the epitome of how corrupt our system is. He knew he was going down, some fakes a medical condition to soften the blow and leave open a potential future bid once things calm down. Then he waits until after he wins reelection to resign so his party doesn't lose a seat.
I'd say his constituents deserve what they get, but all he has to do is blame the republicans and all is forgotten.
^Wouldn't they have to do that anytime someone resigns?
had he resigned before the election, a new DEM candidate could have been selected, negating the need for a special election so soon after the last one. And the DEM still would have one, no doubt. This move was strictly a self serving one, J3 thought a sitting Congressman would have more pull in negotiating a deal with the G. Apparently, his lawyers told him it wouldnt make a difference, so he resigned anyway...
