It is time for the House Representatives to expel Rep Jesse Jackson from Congress.
As he prepares to plead guilty to felony charges of misuse of campaign funds for personal aggrandizement.
Losing his pension and health care as a member of Congress should be the least of his worries as he heads for prison.
Just days after winning a handy reelection to his Chicago-area district, 17-year Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., D-Ill., has entered negotiations for a plea deal that would include his resignation from Congress and likely jail time
The tentative deal includes Jackson, Jr.'s resignation from Congress for health reasons, a "guilty" plea involving misuse of campaign funds, and repayment of any contributions that were converted to personal use. At least some jail time is expected. Jackson, Jr.'s pension, which would pay out between $65,000 and $80,000 a year when he turns 62, is also part of the talks.
