Blago-Sphere Update: Jesse Jackson, Jr. in Deep Doo-Doo

You spend your life trying to keep liberal activist types from going far in politics, and sometimes you get a little help from the liberal activist types.

Let’s see Jesse Sr. keep hope alive for his son on this one:

Chicago Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., is the anonymous “Senate Candidate No. 5” whose emissaries Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich reportedly offered up to $1 million to name him to the U.S. Senate, federal law enforcement sources tell ABC News.

If this is true, Jesse Jr. could end up in a place where “Rainbow/PUSH!” takes on a whole new meaning.
