Ex -congressman Jessi Jackson Junior has agreed to return the Michael Jackson hat he bought with money given to him by supporters to help his political campaign. (This is from the Wall Street Journal of 2 21/13)
Note that the Chicago voters who re-elected him recently don’t care (including the dead voters, Chicago-style).
Ex-congressman Jackson is not related to the late performer Michael Jackson whose hat he had purchased illicitly. The hat is thus not a pious family memento but something to show off at cocktail parties.
Th ex-congressman however is related to – he is the son of – extortionist-in-chief Jessie Jackson (Senior).
And this was another racist blast, of course, from a racist conservative, of course.
Did I say anything about another Chicago politician presently occupying an important position? No, I did not. It’s all in your mind.
