Question of the day

Wednesday, Nov 28, 2012

* A quick JJJr roundup…

* Feds believe Jesse Jackson Jr. got tip about probe into his finances: Federal authorities believe Jesse Jackson Jr. was tipped off to the federal investigation that ultimately contributed to the demise of his once-promising career. Sources with knowledge of the probe told the Chicago Sun-Times that investigators believe Jackson had learned of the federal scrutiny of his financial activity prior to his June 10 leave from Congress. The sources said it didn’t necessarily mean the tip was from an investigative source, saying it was possible the congressman received a tip from someone who was notified about the probe, possibly through a subpoena.

* A Talk with Ald. Will Burns: Looks Like He’s Running for JJJ’s Seat

* Blacks fret free-for-all for Jesse Jackson Jr. seat

* Jesse Jackson Jr. resignation letter read aloud in U.S. House

* The setup

Seventeen years ago, Jesse Jackson Jr. ran for Congress to replace a beleaguered rep who had been convicted in a federal scheme.

Jackson replaced Mel Reynolds, who ultimately resigned in disgrace.

On Wednesday, Jackson resigned in disgrace, the subject of a federal investigation.

Guess who now wants his job back? Mel Reynolds.

“So He Can Finish the Work,” is the news release that Reynolds sent out today, announcing he would officially announce his intentions to run for Jackson’s seat at noon.

* The Question: Mel Reynolds campaign slogan?

I know this will be difficult, but you must absolutely keep it clean in comments. I’m serious.

    Mel Reynolds… Because if you sleep with an underage intern no one remembers you were convicted of bank fraud


  45. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 28, 12 @ 2:22 pm:

    I can’t compete …

    47th Stopped the show, and should be congratulated.

    Very Well Played!


  46. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Nov 28, 12 @ 2:23 pm:

    –Federal authorities believe Jesse Jackson Jr. was tipped off to the federal investigation that ultimately contributed to the demise of his once-promising career.–

    Reading the whole story, it appears to me that the sources must be from within the Justice Department, FBI or some other federal agency.

    I don’t see how you could write a story claiming to know what “federal authorities believe” unless it comes from those federal authorities.

    Anyone have a problem with the federales leaking stuff to the press regarding a target under investigation? One who has not been indicted of anything, by the way?


  47. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Nov 28, 12 @ 2:24 pm:

    Thanks Willy, that’s very high praise coming from you.

    Yeah, that’s your winner.

    That’s about as short, nasty and as on-point as you can get within the rules of the house.

    Now, I think I’ll hit the delousing station.

    Once the Feds start “investigating”, ie. asking certain individuals pointed questions, the word gets around. I wouldn’t assume this was a deliberate leak.


  62. - dupage dan - Wednesday, Nov 28, 12 @ 3:40 pm:

    Mel Camino - drivin’ to DC one vote at a time.


  63. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Nov 28, 12 @ 3:42 pm:

    Walkinfool, I don’t believe a good reporter would write a lede saying “Federal authorities believe” unless the sources were federal authorities, and not some third party.

    I hope a reporter wouldn’t do that. But I also believe that if the sources were federal authorities, their actions are unethical, to say the least.

    Just a reminder: Jackson has not been charged, much less convicted, of anything.

    “Federal authorities” have awesome resources to bring their cases in front of judges and juries. They don’t need to be working the p.r. whisper campaigns. That’s an incredible abuse of very scary power.
