From the Hayes for Congress campaign (2nd District)...
CHICAGO, IL- With yesterday's verdict of Rod Blagojevich being found guilty on count 24 (providing false statements to the law enforcement/FBI), it's time to bring Jesse Jackson Jr. to the stand.
During trial proceedings Rod's brother, Robert Blagojevich, testified that fundraiser Raghu Nayak had offered to raise $6 million for Rod Blagojevich if Rod named Jackson to the empty Senate seat.
Simply put, just because Jackson did not succeed in attaining the seat, does that mean he should not answer for his actions? Hayes commented, "With Rod Blagojevich being found guilty on count 24, it's time to bring Jesse Jackson, Jr. to the stand. Jackson has proven himself to be a power hungry politician who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. For Jackson to not have to answer for this would simply be a slap in the face to the people of the 2nd district, the people of Illinois, and the people of America."
