What a family the Reverend Jesse Jackson has. His half brother, Noah Robinson, is serving a life sentence for racketeering and murder-for-hire. His son, former congressman Jesse Jr, just completed a sentence for using campaign funds on personal items. Junior's wife, Sandi Jackson, a former Chicago alderman, reported to a federal prison this morning to begin her jail term for tax evasion.
Sandi is the latest member of Chicago's City Council to spend time in federal custody. She won't be the last.
Still, Mayor Rahm Emanuel wistfully discusses "Chicago values." Just what are those?
