Jesse Jackson, Jr. is a Democratic representative of the 2nd district of Illinois.[1]


Illinois Statehouse News reported that there was some "bad blood" between Jackson and Rod Blagojevich, which complicated the former governor's trial. Blagojevich has said, "He's a bad guy," about Jackson Jr. Blagojevich's advisers, Fred Yang and and former Chief of Staff John F. Harris, agreed that Jackson Jr. was not worthy of former U.S. Senator Barack Obama's seat that Blagojevich was supposed to fill.[2]
