Disgraced former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Junior was remembered at the weekly meeting of his father’s Rainbow-PUSH Coalition.
Rev. Jesse Jackson and part of his family gathered at Rainbow/PUSH headquarters at 50th and Drexel on Tuesday to mark the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.
“It’s not for me, and certainly elected office is not for me at this time,” Jonathan Jackson said on Tuesday.
As Congress returned from its Thanksgiving break on Tuesday, Jesse Jackson Jr.’s resignation from Illinois’ 2nd Congressional District was made official on Tuesday.
A crowded field could line up to replace Jesse Jackson Jr. in Congress, once a special election is set up to fill his seat following his resignation on Wednesday.
An assailant who was apparently waiting for a man and a woman to return home fatally shot the man and wounded the woman in the hand early Saturday on the West Side.
