Jesse Jackson's relationship with Freddie Mac began in 1998 when Jackson accused Freddie Mac of racial discrimination and encouraged major shareholders to sell their stock. Freddie Mac began financial support for Jackson's organizations and his criticism of Freddie Mac stopped.That's an old story in Chicago. But it could well be new, and outrageous, to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac shareholders who have seen a huge chunk of their value wiped out in the past several days.
