Knucklehead Illinois voters: Jesse Jr. declares victory from Mayo Clinic
In my second story about goofy Illinois voters, Rep. Jesse Jackson J (D-IL), in a statement, declared victory in his reelection effort. Junior checked back into the Mayo Clinic last month--where he is being treated for depression. Also, Jackson is under federal investigation for misuse of campaign funds and the House Ethics Committee is looking into his possible role in Rod Blagojevich's attempt to sell President Obama's old US Senate seat.
Junior hasn't made a public appearance since early June.
How many people expect Jackson to serve a full-term in Washington.
In Chicago and some of the suburbs--they simply vote for the guy with Democrat next to his name.
