#2 Actually, maybe they should have Jesse Jackson, Sr. appoint his son's heir in the seat. That would save the trouble and confusion of an election. Then the state and county could send a "contribution" of a (large) portion of the saved money to Rev Jackson in gratitude.

#3 I'd say it'd be worth it to get rid of him except that if the voters in that district were stupid enough to reelect him after all that was already known about him there isn't much hope that whoever replaces him will be any better.
