Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) is still in some sort of rehab, but his mother let slip one of the things that is really troubling him.
CHICAGO (CBS) — The mother of U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. broke her silence about her son’s illness, acknowledging the congressman has had trouble dealing the “enormous disappointment” over the past few years.
“I’m not ashamed to say,” Jacqueline Jackson said at a speech at an Operation PUSH luncheon on Friday, “he thought he was going to be a senator. He thought he was going to have a chance to run for mayor. And young people don’t bounce back from disappointment like me and my husband.”
Oh boo hoo…
For some reason I picture him in a Scooby Doo episode…
“I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids!”
