    Default Sad Day in Chicago

    Chicago politician Jesse Jackson Jr.plead guilty today to multiple counts of felony misuse of campaign funds. Who's a thunk it?

    (I'm sure his father is so proud).

    Even sadder is when chi town residents use WI addresses to collect two welfare checks. Just got to love what that town puts out.

    check out these details from his case
    In one of the more exotic purchases, Jackson used campaign funds in the spring of 2011 to pay a taxidermist in Montana $7,058 for two mounted elk heads to be shipped to his office in Washington. This was the beginning of an FBI sting, according to court documents.

    A year after the purchase, the taxidermist was asked to buy the elk heads back or provide the names of people who might buy them or build storage containers for them. This led to an undercover FBI agent offering to pay $5,300 for the heads. The money was to be wired to Jackson’s personal bank account, the documents state.
