Jesse Jackson Jr. Was a Federal Informant
According to CNN Political Ticker, for more than ten years he has been giving information to the Feds.
In addition, two sources close to Jackson told CNN that, in 2002, Blagojevich — then running for governor of Illinois — solicited a $25,000 campaign donation from Jackson, which he did not get.
At the time, Jackson's wife, Sandi, was a candidate for the job of director of the state's Lottery Commission, a post she did not win, the sources said.
After Blagojevich took office, in early 2003, he told Jackson something to the effect of, "You see what $25,000 would have done?" the sources said.
In 2006, Jackson reported the incident, which he believed to have been an attempt at a shakedown, the sources said.
I'm gratified to find out that Jesse Jr. really is one of the good guys. I'm sure there will be more information to come out of this. Rahmbo is said to be a dime dropper himself.
