JESSE JACKSON JR RESIGNS FROM CONGRESS...WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHT'S??

Jesse Jackson Jr.'s resignation from Congress might end his once-promising political career but it doesn't mark the end of troubles for the civil rights icon's son.

Just two weeks after voters re-elected him to a ninth full term, Jackson on Wednesday sent his resignation letter to House Speaker John Boehner, citing his ongoing treatment for bipolar disorder and admitting "my share of mistakes" while confirming publically for the first time that he's under a federal probe and cooperating with investigators.
 
The federal investigation is reportedly into possible misuse of campaign funds, but Jackson was also under a House Ethics Committee investigation over dealings with imprisoned ex-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, but it was unclear how the committee would proceed with the resignation. The committee could still decide to release a final report with their findings, but they no longer have the power to punish him.
 
Jackson, 47, was never charged with wrongdoing and in his resignation letter wrote, "they are my mistakes and mine alone."

dam i hurd about this. i jus wish um the best wit everything and whatever he chooses 2 do. #Chilly :-)

It's sad. I remember when he was made president of the Black United Front 30 years ago at the Rev. Daughtry church when he didn't organize it but his father wanted him to be the president. So the Black United Front was devided in Brooklyn and separated from Chicago. Seems that everything was force upon him. Which cause pressure in a young person to do better at something they are not interested in. And he looks like a deer caught in head lights. So maybe the pressure is too great for him.
