With Fitzgerald stepping down, there is a good chance a political hack will be appointed to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Chicago. That appointee will be an order taker. He or she will do what they are told and keep quiet about it. Sort of like Eric Holder. Peter Bella Washington Times May 23, 2012
Jackson also allegedly directed a fundraiser, Raghuveer Nayak, to buy plane tickets for a woman described as Jackson's "social acquaintance." Jackson and his wife have called that a personal matter.
Days before Jackson announced the medical leave, Nayak was arrested and pleaded not guilty to unrelated medical fraud charges. At Blagojevich's 2010 corruption trial, prosecutors said another Blagojevich fundraiser was ready to testify that Jackson instructed Nayak to raise money for Blagojevich's campaign to help him secure the Senate seat. The same witness later testified he attended a meeting with Jackson and Nayak.
Jackson was not charged and has repeatedly denied wrongdoing. Huffington Post 7/11/2012
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D., Ill.) is undergoing inpatient treatment for “physical and emotional ailments” that are more serious than previously thought, his office said in a news release Thursday.The congressman’s office had said on June 25 that the 47-year-old son of civil rights leader the Rev. Jesse Jackson had begun a leave of absence on June 10, citing exhaustion and providing no timeline for his return. NY Daily News July 5, 2012
Eric Holder is the wildest General of the Justice Department ever. There is law and then there are laws and then there are things to be ignored. More important than enforcing Federal immigration law is bringing suit against states like Arizona, Mississippi, Florida and Texas over voting statutes. More important than looking into the armed Black Panther poll-watchers of 2008, was Holder's note that America is a Nation of Cowards. The guy is on his own, because he has President Obama's back on all things, legal, political or cultural. Eric Holder will be here for the full tenure of President Obama's stay in the White House. Holder is the Crypt Master and the One-Man Star Chamber.
One Justice Department employee resigned only days before the announcement that Democrat bundler, Congressional panderer and accused medical care wallet-lifter Raghuveer Nayak* was about to wear a Federal jacket, none other than Patrick Fitzgerald.
No sooner had the Chicago Office of the Feds announced the Nayak indictments than head-scratchers nation-wide asked "Where's Jesse Junior?" The question is loaded with buckshot - where on earth is the Congressman and where is the forthcoming Federal probe of scion of Rainbows for his part in the Blago/Rezko/ et al Federal purge?
This begs my humble question, ' Did Patrick Fitzgerald resign because Eric Holder deep-sixed any probe into Congressman Jackson's active and vigorous Federal mousetrap?
Given Eric Holder's penchant for clarity and transparency, as well as his snappy good-humor, it will blizzard on Luzon before anyone in the media will ask the same.
Federal Indictment - completely laundered of political stains and any mention of Congressman Jackson
*Nayak’s facilities did not accept patients covered public health insurance programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid, and instead accepted patients insured by private health insurers, such as BlueCross BlueShield, or patients who agreed to pay the entire fees themselves. Private insurers treated Nayak’s facilities as “out-of-network” when paying bills submitted for patient services.
