Jackson Speaks ON Blagojevich Sentence: ‘Sad Day For Illinois’
U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) was speaking out for the first time on Thursday about the 14-year sentence handed down to former Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
As CBS 2′s Mike Parker reports, at a rally for Chicago postal workers, Jackson declared that the Blagojevich scandal has “shamed our state.”
He also said Blagojevich’s sentencing was “a sad day for Illinois, a very sad day for (Blagojevich’s) wife and for his family. No one is shouting with glee, with excitement over what happened and transpired.”
