Jackson, Jesse Political Mafia
SHAKEDOWN Exposing the real Jesse Jackson
a book by Kenneth R. Timmerman
Until now, however, no one has been brave enough to say it and diligent enough to prove it. But Ken Timmerman has cracked Jackson's machine, found Jackson cronies willing to break ranks, and uncovered a sordid tale of greed, ambition, and corruption from a self-proclaimed minister who has no qualms about poisoning American race relations for personal gain.
* Jackson's massive defrauding of the federal government - and how both Republican and Democratic administrations have chosen to ignore it.
* Jackson's financial ties to Third World dictators - including Mohammar Qaddafi of Libya.
* Jackson's shocking private life - and his even more shocking public lies, including about his relationship with Dr. Martin Luther King
Other details must remain embargoed until publication, but one thing is for certain, Shakedown finally bursts the carefully constructed myths around Jesse Jackson and subject him to the critical scrutiny he's long deserved.
