Holding Jesse Jackson to his Word

Methinks it's might be time for a good old fashioned blogswam..... I'll help Wizbang lead the way. Jesse Jackson should have to live up to his word.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson said Saturday his Rainbow/Push Coalition will pay the college tuition of a woman who told police she was raped by members of Duke University's men's lacrosse team while working as a stripper -- no matter the outcome of the case.

"I can't wait ... to talk with her and have prayer with her, because our organization is committed, when she's physically and emotionally able ... to provide for her the scholarship money to finish school so she will never ... again have to stoop that low to survive," he said from Chicago in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

When asked, the civil rights leader also said his group will pay for the woman's tuition even if her report proves false. ...

While it pains me that Crystal Gail Mangum would profit from false accusations, I'd like to see Jesse pay more. Frankly, she should be in jail.... but I can't control that. Perhaps I can put a little heat on Jackson to honor his word. I know nothing hurts Jesse more than parting with money.

Even though the promise was gratuitous (and therefore unenforceable), I'd like to see some enterprising trial lawyer take Ms. Mangum's case when JJ renegs.

Chris G:

wavemaker, are you showing off your Contracts I chops ;)

Besides, even if the promise was without consideration (gratuitous), she could claim Detrimental Reliance. I'm only a hack 1L law student, but I would have Jackson paying for her to go to Harvard undergraduate, Law, and Business schools, while also getting money for an apartment, car, country club expenses, pshyco-therapy, blah, blah, blah.

If not Jesse, what other generous lefty will step forward to finance this young lady's education? I mean, she is oppressed, and all.....

"stoop that low to survive"... (Below threshold)

"stoop that low to survive"....

You mean like stooping so low as to falsely accuse three supposedly "rich" white boys of rape?

Yes, Jesse, that is indeed stooping very low.

P.S. Hey Jesse, how are those child support payments going with your mistress? Don't be late just cuz you have to pay a liar her tuition.

Holding Jackson to his prom... (Below threshold)

Holding Jackson to his promise would be impossible now that the N.C. Attorney General has determined that she was lying.

I'm sure reasonable people can agree that Jackson's offer was based on her representation (which was incorrectly confirmed by Nifong) that she had been raped by a group of white students.

Lee, what happened with you? You used to be able to do a basic Google search. Don't let them facts get in the way of trying to sound informed!

It's coming out of the pockets of those who contributed, voluntarily or involuntarily.

Lee, you get an electronic noogie for using the word 'reasonable' and the name 'Jackson' in the same sentence. ;-)

Last night on Anderson Coop... (Below threshold)

Last night on Anderson Cooper's show on CNN, Jackson claimed that he hadn't even met with the woman, even though this incident was over a year ago. Compared to the statement by Jackson at the time of the Duke incident that he couldn't "wait" to meet with the stripper "victim", and would even pay her tuition, you can see that he has no integrity or honor whatsoever, and just uses words in a political way for his own fundraising efforts to benefit himself.

Jackson also claims to be an opponent of racism, but as a young restaurant employee was known for spitting into the food of White customers as a form of racist act. There is no ends to the Jackson hypocrisy.

Blogical - some might say 10,000 volts would be required to get that noogie through my thick skull... heh.

Chris G -- bully for you, young man! Spoken like a true law student and future litigator, all full of piss and vinegar!

But tell me:

1. How in what way you argue that she had changed her position to her detriment in reliance on Jackson's promise? His promise was unconditional and did not depend on her doing anything. Would not her change of position not be "reasonable?"

2. Wouldn't any reliance on anything Jesse Jackson says not be reasonable?

DJ Drummond:

I'm afraid that Jackson has an 'out' available.

The report clearly states "the civil rights leader also said his group will pay for the woman's tuition even if her report proves false". [ bold mine ]

We all understand that Jesse is not, and has never been, a 'civil rights leader'.

DJ, it just means that "his... (Below threshold)

DJ, it just means that "his group" will pay - not Jackson personally. Personal responsibility in the Cult of Perpetual Victimhood is as anathema as denying the Immaculate Conception of Mary to a Catholic. But I digress.

If I recall correctly, Jesse's mistress was paid out of group monies - not his own wallet - to keep her mouth shut for so many years about the "love chile" they had together.

I keep hoping that one day before either man dies, Jackson and Sharpton will find themselves on the receiving end of the BS they both spew every time their gums flap.

For you contract guru's above, what you fail to realize is that whether it is gratuitous or not, in the real world, the damn case will get settled for cash and the ho, um, excuse me, "the accuser" will blow it on something other than an education. Probably some gold chains and maybe a car to park in front of her trailer home. Maybe if there is money left over, she will get a North Carolina Central University sweatshirt or something.
