This guy was so dirty for so long that it was inconceivable that he would be able to cover it up much longer. Jesse Jackson, Jr. and his wife

agreed Friday to plead guilty to federal charges growing out of what prosecutors said was a scheme  to use $750,000 in campaign funds for lavish personal expenses, including a $43,000 watch and furs…

Jackson used campaign money to buy such things as a $43,350 -plated men’s Rolex watch and $9,587.64 on children’s furniture, according to court papers filed in the case. His wife spent $5,150 on fur capes and parkas, the document said.

They also filed false joint income tax returns. Shoot, while you’re at it, why not steal from the government as well?

Federal prosecutors filed one charge of against the former Chicago congressman and charged his  ex-alderman wife, Sandra,  with one count of false joint federal income tax returns for the years 2006 through 2011 that knowingly understated the income the couple received.

That’s six years’ worth of income tax returns. Six years!

The Times article wasn’t as clear about whether JJ is going to or not, mentioning efforts instead to plea bargain his way out of jail time:

The government said, “Defendant Jesse L.  Jackson Jr., willingly and knowingly, used approximately $750,000 from the  campaign’s accounts for personal expenses” that benefited him and his co-conspirator, who was not named in the one-count criminal information filed in the case. The of a criminal information means a defendant has waived the right to have a grand jury consider the case; it is used by federal prosecutors when they have reached a deal for a guilty plea.

Part of the plea deal, no doubt, was a public admission of guilt. JJ was happy to oblige:

I offer no excuses for my conduct, and I fully accept my responsibility for the improper decisions and mistakes I have made. I want to offer my sincerest apologies … for my errors in judgment and while my journey is not yet complete, it is my hope that I am remembered for things that I did right.

This is really unconscionable. He made “mistakes” and “errors in judgment” but thinks his career isn’t over? And he wants to be remembered for the things he did right?

Sorry, JJ. You’ll be remembered for exactly who you are: a thief and a scoundrel.
