I thought maybe he would plead guilty to so much stuff that they would let his wife walk. But, maybe not:
The former 17-year South Shore Democratic congressman had told associates that he tried “protecting” his wife during negotiations leading up to the plea agreement, but “they wouldn’t let him,” the source said.I mean, they have minor children. A lot of guys are willing to do extra time, if it enables their kids to stay with their mother.
And Congressman Jackson was a much "bigger catch" than Alderman Sandi Jackson.
What are they in trouble for? It seems to be campaign funding trouble. When I was a kid, most of these laws didn't even exist.
These laws deserve to be softened,
so politicians go to jail less often!
