News today was revealed that Jesse Jackson, Jr. has put his Washington D.C. home up on the market. This after his many months in seclusion for “exhaustion” or whatever mental problem he’s claiming he had this week. So, my guess is Jesse Jackson will quit Congress.
If I had to bet, I’d guess he’ll quit just after he wins reelection, too.
Jackson put his home on the market in June so it is obvious he’s been planning this for some time. The house is listed for $2.5 million and you can see the video listing here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGxgMFwFXaI.
Why would he wait until after he wins re-election? So that he can be 100% sure that his Republican opponent couldn’t possibly take the seat. Not leaving anything to chance to keep the seat in Democrat hands, he’ll quit right after he wins re-election, for sure.
Does this serve his voters? Of course not. Democrats don’t care about what is moral, right or good for the people. They only care about power.
So, who is that Republican that Jackson wants to be sure and prevent from having any chance to unseat him? His name is Brian Woodworth.
