Abstract:

The eldest of the Rev. Jesse Jackson's children, Jesse Jackson Jr. showed promise early. He was a dynamic speaker who conveyed a desire to serve the public, and he entered Chicago politics with the most important resource: clout. He first gained national exposure when he introduced his famous father at the Democratic National Convention in 1988 and successfully ran for Illinois' 2nd congressional district in the U.S. House in 1995. Voters sent him back to Congress 10 times. Somewhere along the way, life began to unravel, and it did so on a grand scale. In "Inside Jesse Jackson Jr.'s Collapse," Chicago Sun-Times reporters and columnists follow the trail that led this once-rising star to resign office and plead guilty to federal charges that will send him to prison.
