Jesse Jackson, Jr. claims to have not spoken to Blago in four years

Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr (D-2nd District, Illinois) – aka “Senate Candidate #5” claimed in a press conference yesterday that, up until Monday, he had not met with disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich for four years.

I guess that doesn’t include the time a few months ago when he cried on Blago’s shoulder during the Democrat National Convention …

Seriously, it’s well-documented that Jackson majorly pursued Obama’s Senate seat. Is this a case of the apple not falling far from the tree?
