Jackson Resigns From Congresshttp://atr.rollcall.com/jesse-jackson-jr-resignation-appears...Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr. submitted his letter of resignation from the House on Wednesday, a spokesman for Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, confirmed.Jackson's resignation will be accepted and become official when the House gavels back into session next week. The move will set off a scramble to fill the safe Democratic seat in the Chicagoland area. Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn would have five days from the effective date of the resignation to announce the timing of the special election.______________________I can think of a few well-qualified Democrat candidates who would proudly continue the traditions of Jackson's congressional seat, if they could only establish residency in time for the election:1) The MI judge involved in real-estate fraud2) The director of the MA Highway Safety Division3) Jon CorzineFeel free to expand the list.--fleg
