Latest on EW Jackson, Satan slayer


332qz6hRemember the good Reverend E. W. Jackson running for Lt Governor of Virginia I wrote about last week? When he’s not preaching the prosperity Gospel, Jackson was quite concerned that people who disagreed with him had been unknowingly “attached to Satan.” Looks like someone, possibly within the GOP, has it in for the good preacher because some nasty stuff turned up:

Washington Examiner – Jackson’s money problems began back in 1985 when the Harvard-trained lawyer was living in Middlesex County, Mass., and was hit with a federal tax lien for failing to pay $3,000 since 1983, state records show. He paid off the IRS debt two years later, but his money troubles continued.

In 1993, Jackson filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, according to federal court records. Among the nearly three dozens creditors he owed were city, state and federal tax collection agencies, Harvard University — where Jackson received his law degree in 1978 — several banks, a church, a hospital, relators and the Encyclopaedia Britannica.

More recently, Jackson was forced to pay about $6,700 to a Virginia couple that sued him in 2007 for failing to pay rent on space leased by his Chesapeake church. Just last year, Jackson paid taxes owed to the City of Chesapeake only after the city sued him, court documents show.

Sounds like another over-pious deadbeat fraud looking to fleece voters and feather his own nest.

    Uh-oh. He didn’t edit any Law Reviews while he was there, did he?

    Within the GOP? Don’t be silly. Clearly it’s Satan, trying to defeat his enemy.

    Is there any other kind?

    Jackson has fought his way out from unfair treatment. Why are you denigrating him? The FCC treated his radio station poorly. We should be celebrating this guy for fighting his way back from bankruptcy after being mistreated. It’s the story of our time: business owners trying to shovel themselves out from under an over-reachign federal government; states trying to recover from debt and near-bankruptcy. People are tired of government abuse and we’re going to vote for someone who will fight for us.
