Jesse Jackson Jr. Comes Out of Hiding



    There must be some interesting poll numbers out there.

    Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. has basically been in hiding since former Gov. Rod Blagojevich was arrested.

    However, it’s only mid-week and the Democratic Congressman will have his second public event this week, and the press is invited.

    Jackson plans to visit the Southland Health Care Forum Wednesday.

    The events are quite a reversal. Repeated requests for Jackson to become available to discuss various issues have been declined.

    Jackson faces former Congresswoman Deb Halvorson in the upcoming primary. She must be registering on tracking polls.
