Breitbart reported: “That generous $8,700 in disability comes thanks to Jackson’s sudden development of a “mood disorder” as the federal government began looking to indict him. Jackson, who was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison, had no history of mental illness during his prior 17 years in Congress.”
Rev. Jesse Jackson has defended his son’s claims of mental illness, stating to the court, “This time a year ago I thought we may have lost him.”
The former Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. was previously sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for illegally spending $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items, the judge scolding the son of the famed ‘civil rights’ leader for using the money as a “piggy bank”.
