    More after election breaking news

    Jackson, who was easily re-elected to Congress on November 6, may have to resign his seat and serve time.

    CHICAGO - Amid reports that he may have misused campaign funds, Illinois congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. has hired a lawyer to handle negotiations with the federal government on possible plea deal in which he would resign from the House of Representatives and spend time in prison, media said.

    CBS 2 television reported on Saturday and Fox News Chicago on Monday, citing an unnamed source, that Jackson hired Dan Webb, a former U.S. attorney in Chicago who represents defendants in high-profile corruption cases to represent the 47-year-old lawmaker.

    Both reports said Jackson, who was easily re-elected to Congress on November 6, may have to resign his seat and serve time in prison under terms of the deal being negotiated.

    Webb and a spokesman for Jackson did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Reuters.
    Last week, the Chicago Sun-Times reported that Jackson was under investigation for allegedly misusing campaign funds to decorate his home and to buy a $40,000 Rolex watch for a female friend. Reuters has not confirmed the report. snip

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    And he'll win. Good timing with this one, let him run and win, then appoint another dem. Of course in his district a Republican would probably get zero votes anyway.

    Probably not, paybacks are hell.
    I guess not, given how cagey the press has been about the recently-released remarks by Jesse Jackson about what, exactly, he'd like to do to Barack Obama. ("I wanna cut his nuts off," is what Jackson so charmingly said.) Not that you'd know it by the reporting
