  1. The voters of his district need to vote for anyone other than Jesse Jackson Jr. even if it is a Republican. In 1995 he purchased a car for a heroin dealer. He is the person that was trying to buy then Senator Obama’s senate seat for 6 million dollars. He had the same person Nayak raising the money for the senate seat to purchase plane tickets for a female companion to fly to Chicago. This man is a total criminal.
