Sep 22, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr has found himself in the news again for a reason that might just not help his campaign at all. Adding to the already humiliating story of his alleged attempt to buy a senate seat with the help of another controversy-plagued politician and former Mayor Rod Blagojevich, is the latest reports of his being linked to Giovanna Huidobro a gorgeous model/hostess. Reports suggest that Jesse Jackson Jr. had asked his fund raiser Raghuveer Nayak to arrange for her flight from Washington DC to Chicago on at least two occasions. The news comes as a serious blow to the political career of Jesse Jackson Jr especially to his hopes of running for the Mayor in the next elections. With just few months left, the two scandals are sure to lessen his chances of success in run for Chicago’s Mayorship.
According to certain reports Giovanna Huidobro was also present in meeting where Jesse Jackson and Raghuveer Nayak were discussing the scheme to funnel $6 million from the funds raised to Rod Blagojevich. Jesse Jackson Jr. was blatant about his affair with the former model and restaurant hostess and called her a social acquaintance. He also said that it was a matter that he and his wife had dealt with difficulty in the past and he wanted to keep it private. He also asked the reporters to respect his privacy.
Jesse Jackson also gave a controversial statement during a time when an investigation on him by the FBI was impending. His confidence and lack of guilt came through with the lines ‘Bring it on’ but many political experts feel that he might have upset more people than he would have wanted to.
