Yes, well spotted. I did end my last post with a quote from Jesse Jackson Sr. Then on the same day I posted, this scandal about his son broke. How weird is that?
Jesse Jackson Jr. admitted Wednesday August 14th, 2013 to embezzling approximately $750,000 from his campaign funds. While this is shocking in itself he then illegally used the money for personal purchases, including “Michael Jackson memorabilia, fur coats and a Rolex watch”. His wife pleaded guilty to signing off on tax returns, knowing that the couple had under-reported their income.
What really got to me, though, was the reporter’s comment, “The arrogance and stupidity of using campaign funds to buy frivolous merchandise is simply breathtaking”.
These are the mink and fox fur garments that Jesse Jackson Jr. bought (without the women of course). Thousands of innocent animals would have been brutally killed to make these so-called ” frivolous” items. When will people stop seeing fur items as frivolous!!! Wearing fur is a moral crime.
