Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s mother, Jacqueline Jackson, told a Rainbow/PUSH conference Friday that her son has suffered years of “enormous disappointment.”
“I’m not ashamed to say … 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,” she said.
In the wake of this bizarre excuse for her son’s behavior, Mrs. Jackson has claimed that she was “tricked” into speaking out at the luncheon. The luncheon was organized by her husband’s own organization.
A new excuse for foot in mouth–”I was tricked”. But then, so were the voters.

As to Democrat Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr.’s voting record, he Did Not Vote on the Ryan Budget, The Domestic Engagement and Jobs Act nor on the Conservatism and Economic Growth bill. Why not? Rep.
