Brownsox notes that Jackson worked with prosecutors on a prior case against Blagojevich, and it doesn’t look like he worked on this one. So, not out of the woods yet, and one wonders why he lawyered up so fast if he was in the clear.
That seems to be an odd statement, doesn’t it? Since when did progressives think that obtaining legal advice implied guilt? Personally, I think it would have been reckless for Jackson to not get lawyers, especially in the current political climate. This is the new America- just because you haven’t done anything wrong doesn’t mean the press can’t try to convict you anyway.

Jenna Jameson it would be a Craig’s Lister looking for a casual encounter.
