Opinion

“I still believe in the power of forgiveness; I believe in the power of redemption. Today I manned up and tried to accept responsibility for the error of my ways. And I still believe in resurrection.” – Jesse Jackson Jr. (To a reporter after sentencing)

Former Illinois congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., 48, and wife Sandi Jackson, 49, were sentenced to prison Wednesday. Jackson Jr. received 30 months for misuse of nearly $750,000 in campaign funds and will begin his prison term by November 1. Wife Sandi received 12 months for filing false tax returns in which she failed to report $580,000 in income from 2006 to 2011. She will have 30 days to surrender after her husband is released . . .
