1. He should've at least withdrawn from the election like Robert Toricelli did.

As Toricelli was under federal investigation in 2002, Toricelli's withdrawal from the 2002 election is why Democrat Frank Lautenberg won over the Republican challenger in the election, despite a New Jersey Republican Party lawsuit that failed to remove Lautenberg's name on technical grounds. If Jackson did the right thing and chose to retire after his term or resign once he realized he'd be indefinitely out of work, the people of his district would have somebody representing them right now. Sadly, the people of Illinois's 2nd congressional district are currently suffering from taxation without representation.
