WELL, BOO-FUCKING-HOO!!!

Jesse Jackson Jr. is whining about being in heavy debt.

Tough shit, asshole!

Next time don’t commit crimes.

And live within your means.

Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. said on Tuesday that he and his estranged wife are $1.8 million in debt.

Speaking to reporters following a divorce case hearing in Chicago, Jackson blamed legal bills from the two divorce cases in two separate cities with his wife Sandi Jackson and the legal costs related to his federal criminal prosecution for misuse of campaign funds.

“Growing out of the criminal case and now growing out of the divorce, we’re at based on our calculations, $1.8 million in debt,” he said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “That’s the reality, lawyers that we owe everywhere, two mortgages that we owe everywhere.”

Jackson said he his sole source of income is from Social Security disability payments, specifically worker’s compensation benefits because he has bipolar disorder and depression. He claimed that the $138,000-per-year disability payment figure reported by his wife’s attorneys is inaccurate and is actually a lower amount.

Jackson, who served 17 years in Congress, was sentenced to prison time in 2013 for using about $750,000 in campaign funds for vacations, furs, celebrity memorabilia and other items. His wife got a shorter sentence for omitting income $580,000 in income in the couple’s tax returns, according to the New York Times.
