Jesse L. Jackson Jr.

Jesse L. Jackson Jr. trailed the political moves of his dad, Rev. Jesse Jackson, by becoming a United States House Representative for the 2nd Congressional District of Illinois.
Most recently, though, Jackson Jr. was convicted of misusing federal funds for personal purchases and he had to step down.

While we believe he has made a small pit stop, we do not believe it's the end of this leader's political career.
