Illinoispaytoplay.com has learned that a second person with knowledge of Jesse Jackson Jr's attempted purchase of a senate seat may be prepared to offer testimony to the U.S House of Representatives Committee on Ethics that person or persons representing Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. approached Blagojevich offering to render the Governor “substantial financial considerations” in exchange for Blagojevich appointing Jackson to the U.S. Senate seat about to be vacated by then President-elect Barack Obama.
In October 2011, Robert Blagojevich, the former governor’s brother, made public his offer to testify before the House Committee on Ethics about conversations between Jackson’s representatives and his brother. To date, Robert Blagojevich has not been publicly involved in any investigation of Jackson conducted by the Committee on Ethics.
Could the possibility of a second person with knowledge of the Jackson party’s approaching Blagojevich to purchase the senate seat be the cause of Congressman Jackson's recently divulged mental illness?
Robert Blagojevich’s can be heard on the WLS radio show Don and Roma stating accusations that the Jackson party's not only approached Blagojevich with the offer to purchase the senate seat, but that witnesses have comfirmed that the general financial offer was made at Jackson's direction.
