Jesse Jackson was on TV, commenting on his son’s two-plus-year prison sentence for taking money from his campaign fund for private use. Jackson says he had no idea his son was bipolar, blaming that for the actions of Jesse Jr.

Wasn’t Jackson Sr. accused by some, though not sent to prison, of taking funds from one of his tax-exempt charitable organizations to help relocate his lover, Karin Stanford, who bore his love child?

Using funds unwisely. Could it just be like father, like son?
