It is becoming common knowledge that Jessie Jackson and Billy Kyles were the Judas who help set into order the death's of  Dr. Martin Luther King and Minister Malcom X. Also, within hours of King's assassination, Jackson was appearing on television, falsely claiming that King died in his arms. Actually, King died in the arms of the Rev. Ralph Abernathy, of a ghastly gunshot wound. Jackson was nowhere to be found. Yet in his public appearances he claimed the blood on his shirt was King's. The travesty was the beginning of Jackson's rise to the top, to Bill Clinton's side during his squalid sex scandal and to the executive suites of the corporations he now shakes down.
The saga of Jesse Jackson is an amazing one. As Kenneth Timmerman chronicles in his excellent study of the man, Shakedown: Exposing the Real Jesse Jackson, Jackson began his career with some genuine achievements capable of easing the plight of poor and uneducated blacks. But the colossal frauds that he perpetrated from the start far outweigh the achievements, and the frauds have continued to this very day. Many of the frauds are prominent on the public record. 
There is an amazing tolerance for corruption nowadays, particularly if the corrupt are on the left. That is why so many sectors of the American left are so corrupt. It is also why it now appears that the American left is in decline. Surely Jackson is in decline, but he can still draw a crowd and still make a buck. Will he ever totally exhaust the country's goodwill? Will there ever be for him one scandal too many? My guess is that he will gently shove off into retirement. It is not likely that he is going to have another Democratic president to counsel for a long time.
