Sing karaoke, earn leniency


Or at least, that’s what the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus seems to think. Representative Marcia Fudge, a Democrat from Ohio, has asked the federal judge weighing the sentencing of former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., who has pleaded guilty to spending campaign funds on appliances, televisions and jewelry, to consider Jackson’s karaoke skills as part of his sentencing deliberations.

“Jesse was the highlight of our karaoke nights and always made everyone feel like an integral part of, and not apart from, various activities. He made us realize that we could still have fun, while addressing important national issues.” – Rep Marcia Fudge

Jackson could be sentenced for up to four years in prison.
