Now that Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Sandi Jackson, are admitted felons and awaiting sentencing, where are the disbarment proceedings? The Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission and the Illinois Supreme Court should be taking away their law licenses. These two lawyers are admitted thieves who abused the trust of the 2nd Congressional District and the 7th Ward in Chicago.
The Jacksons manipulated the system for sheer greed and profit. Since they violated their vocation's standard of ethics, their right to practice law should be forfeited. I trust the ARDC as far as I could push my building. It is a politically charged institution that prosecutes the small-time lawyers and looks the other way for the good old boys of the corporate law firms and those who are politically connected.
Illinois has a reputation as one of the most corrupt states in the U.S., and it is well deserved. The who's who book of Chicago politics is littered with the names of convicted felons. Yet, they keep on stealing! Why? They usually get away with it.
If they do get caught, they then develop a case of Feditis, bipolar disorder, or incarceration phobia. These maladies are used to evoke sympathy from their victimized constituencies.
It's time for the ARDC and the Supreme Court of Illinois to do what's right. Disbar the Jacksons as well as all the other crooked lawyers.
