Celebrity News: Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. may resign from Congress,possible jail time in plea deal

The son of Rev. Jesse Jackson may have to spend some time in jail as a part of a plea deal.  If so, Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. may put in a resignation from Congress, as you know, a seat he won by a landslide.  The alleged plea deal comes after Congressman Jackson has had been allegedly diagnosed with a bi-polar disorder.  We knew if it were a possible plea deal, it would not be easy and it is a great disappointment he may have to resign from his second term.
