Ex-Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. sentenced to 30 months prison

by Wochit 0:47 mins

Disgraced former Illinois congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., once one of the most promising black politicians in the United States, was sentenced to 2-1/2 years in prison for misuse of campaign funds. Bahraini police fired tear gas and birdshot at demonstrators, witnesses said, as protests calling for democratic change in the U.S.-allied Gulf kingdom turned violent. Activists have stepped up a two-and-a-half-year-old campaign to push the Sunni Muslim ruling family into allowing more democracy in the Shi'ite-majority state of 1.25 million people. Bahrain is an important U.S. regional ally against Shi'ite Iran.
