Perfect Job For Jackson Jr

From the Chicago Sun Times: Along with all the formalities surrounding inauguration day for our elected officials — the swearing-in ceremonies, the photo ops and any other fanfare, there should be an obligatory gift bestowed upon newly minted politicians.
How about a commemorative toothbrush?
It would have to sit on their desks, maybe in a special cup.
Not to be used. Not to be framed. Not to be gold-plated and mounted.
It should just stay put, as a reminder.
If you’re asking why, then you’ve not yet heard what disgraced former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s been up to in federal prison.
He's cleaning toilets.
With a toothbush.
“He’s doing a fastidious job — a toothbrush doing wonders on a clogged drain,” writes former Pennsylvania attorney John Karoly, an inmate who spent some time with Jackson in prison.
Yup, Jackson’s reported job as a federal inmate is scrubbing toilets with a toothbrush. Jackson began his sentence last fall after pleading guilty to looting his campaign fund of $750,000.
Not a bad job for a ex-congress critter.
Now, if they can pass out 535 more toothbrushes to the rest of the crooked Congress critters plus a few more for those in the White House, we may be able to clean up our federal government.
