Jesse Jackson Jr.

The Michael Jackson Interrogation

2/21/2013 6:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

022113_jesse_jackson_launch
It might be the most brilliant line of questioning of 2013 ... a TMZ photog went face-to-face with Jesse Jackson Jr. and demanded to know why he blew his stolen campaign money on a Michael Jackson fedora ... AND NOT A MICHAEL JACKSON GLOVE???

And then the follow up ... DID YOU AT LEAST GET TO WEAR THE FEDORA?

Of course, JJJ just plead guilty to fraud ... after stealing $750,000 from his campaign to support a lavish, over-the-top lifestyle. Jesse admitted he spent the cash on things like fur capes, a mounted elk head, and a fedora once owned by Michael Jackson.

Jesse was out in D.C. yesterday, so we figured it was finally time to get some answers to the important questions. You gotta see this ...

Ryan. even though Todd`s storry is great, I just received a brand new Chevrolet Corvette after having earned $8477 this last month and over ten grand last-munth. with-out any question its the coolest job I've had. I began this four months/ago and immediately began to bring home more than $82, per-hr. I follow the instructions here, Big44.com

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree does it. His wife was charged with crimes as well. The topper though was his lawyer talking about how accomplished JJJ is and "he'll be back." As sad as that is to think about I would bet he's probably right.

Anyone else notice that he happens to be walking past the bar where he was caught last year with his mistress, a hostess at said bar? http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/jesse-jackson-jr-ensnared-scandals-involving-senate-seat/story?id=11701679

Think this greedy A$$ deserves more than 4 years in prison. He should also have to forfeit all that he bought, including his gay Fedora, to repay the campaign donors.

The Jackson family are media whores just like Sharpton and others. Any thing related to race, Jesse Sr. is all over and vying for attention using race as his platform. They're all useless and sick and riding the coat tails of MLK. Bi-bopar BS, just a piece of $#%%

Destroyed his career and reputation for fur capes?
He may as well try "rapping" now.
