Democrat Jan Schakowsky represents Marathon Pundit in Congress. She's a moonbat's moonbat, as you'll read here.
Schakowsky has not been accused of wrongdoing, as the below article correctly explains. However, while her husband, Robert Creamer, was the Executive Director of the Illinois Public Action Council (the vantage point from which Creamer was manipulating these schemes), Jan was on the group's board of directors.
Creamer is a political force in his own right, having worked as a political consultant for fellow Democrats Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago and Illinois' Governor Rod Blagojevich.
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Political consultant Robert Creamer, the husband of U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, pleaded guilty Wednesday to writing rubber checks and failing to collect withholding tax from an employee so he could use the money to pay a bill.
Creamer, 58, could face four years in prison on the two felony counts when he is sentenced Dec. 21.
Schakowsky was by Creamer's side as he pleaded guilty.
"I still stand by him," the Democrat said after the hearing. "He's a wonderful man, and this doesn't define what he is."
Creamer pleaded guilty to one count each of bank fraud and failure to collect withholding tax. In exchange for his plea, prosecutors dropped several other counts.
Prosecutors said they hope Judge James B. Moran will sentence Creamer to four years behind bars. His lawyer, Theodore Poulos, said he hopes his client can avoid prison and serve whatever sentence he receives in a halfway house or house arrest.
Schakowsky, who lives in the Chicago suburb of Evanston and represents a heavily Democratic district, said she didn't think Creamer's plea would prompt a primary challenge next year. She has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
UPDATE 3:00 PM CDT: Associated Press has a more detailed article here.
Creamer admitted in his 18-page signed plea agreement that he wrote checks on accounts that lacked sufficient funds to cover them. He was able to do this repeatedly because he moved money from one account to another in three banks in 1997, playing what bankers describe as the float and thus making them believe that the accounts had more money in them than they actually did.
