Jesse Jackson used to be a serious political figure, with serious power and serious influence among serious people.
Then, he devolved into an "activist", shaking down corporations for donations to his "non profit" in exchange for calling off protests and demonstrations.
"Michael Jackson's family wants a private autopsy of the pop icon because of unanswered questions about how he died and the doctor who was with him, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said Saturday. "It's abnormal," he told The Associated Press from Chicago a day after visiting the Jackson family. "We don't know what happened. Was he injected and with what? All reasonable doubt should be addressed."
Jesse Jackson went from being the right hand man to a saint and a presidential candidate to being one more hanger on, sponging money and publicity off a pop star's dead body.
