Note my bolding. Oh, my, yes, note my bolding:
SPRINGFIELD, Illinois (CNN) — Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. — who was cited in a criminal complaint against Rod Blagojevich — has been an informant for at least a decade with the U.S. Attorney's office, and has informed on the embattled governor of Illinois, though not in the case currently under investigation, Jackson spokesman Kenneth Edmonds told CNN Tuesday.
In addition, two sources close to Jackson told CNN that, in 2002, Blagojevich — then running for governor of Illinois — solicited a $25,000 campaign donation from Jackson, which he did not get.

Let us now all sit back and contemplate all those possible times that Jackson could have been wearing a wire: no, I don't know how often, or whether he ever did. Then again, neither does anybody who has ever talked to him.
