Jesse Jackson, Jr. had everything but apparently wanted it all. He may well be bi-polar and suffer other illnesses but none of that excuses his apparent criminal conduct. Former Congressman Jackson said he stood for the people - those who had no voice, as his father had before him - but somewhere along the road he lost himself and decided that personal enrichment was more important than public service. His legacy will be that of another corrupt Chicago politican. I cannot, however, fully disown him. Not because of party or politics but because of faith and church. I adore The Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr., and both father and son are part of my academic community. My prayers are with them and I hope that former Rep. Jackson can find some measure of redemption for his sins.
