Former Chicago Ald, Sandi Jackson (7th), the wife of another jailbird, former US Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr, was released from prison today.
Sandi was entangled in her husband's scandal surrounding the misappropriation of campaign finance funds.
Junior of course is the son of long-time political gadfly, the Rev. Jesse Jackson.
Much of Sandi's old ward was in the South Chicago neighborhood, which I profiled here recently.
