(NEW YORK) (July 12, 2012) Conservative blogger and corruption fighter Andy Martin will hold a New York news conference today to announce that if U. S. Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. does not appear in public and speak coherently by Monday, July 16th Andy will ask the Illinois State Board of Elections to remove Jackson’s name from the ballot and declare the congressional seat vacant.
“The Jackson Family’s soap opera has gone on long enough, with ‘Jetstream’ Jesse the father refusing to answer questions about his son and the cryptic remarks by Jackson Junior’s wife. Enough is enough. The Jackson Family is an embarrassment and disgrace to the City of Chicago at a time when the city faces urgent problems and a nationwide and international public relations disaster,” says Internet Powerhouse Andy.
“It is time for Jesse Jr. to either resign or appear in public and speak coherently. If Jackson is unable to function by July 16th I will ask the State Board of Elections to remove Jackson’s name from the ballot and to declare his congressional seat vacant,” Andy says. “Congressional politicians have been much too generous with themselves taking off from their official duties for extended periods of time. Reasonable limits should apply.
“The claim that Jackson is invoking federal medical privacy statutes is a joke. When you run for public office you lose a lot of privacy. When you hold public office you lose any privacy concerning your ability to perform the functions of your public trust. (Tribune link below) For Jackson’s mouthpieces to just say Jackson has a ‘mood disorder’ is not enough to cover up the latest Jackson Family scam.
“Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mary Mitchell calls Jesse Jackson Junior ‘royalty.’ (link below) I suggest the Jackson Family is more of an embarrassment than a royal blood line. Jesse Senior has been an embarrassment since the 1960’s. Jesse Junior is incapable of holding down a congressional office without engaging in adultery and chicanery. What kind of ‘royalty’ is this? The Jacksons have made a career of exploiting political public intimidation and private profiteering.
