NPR had a story on the stuff he bought and I couldn't help but think that with a $43k watch and MJ's hat he was trying to be Shaft

Remember - those totals are over 7 years (Aug 05-Apr 12). Because I'm a math nerd, here's the per-year spending totals:
-$8,693.85 at restaurants, nightclubs, and lounges ($167.18 per WEEK)
-$4,528.57 on airfare (assuming this is non-campaign-related, that's only one big trip per year)
-$2,294.14 on sports clubs (how? How does one spend this much at a sports club in a year? That can't just be gym memberships - maybe a massage parlor at a gym?)
-$2,451.86 on purchases at tobacco shops (at $8/pack, that's 306.5 packs PER YEAR, or about 6/week. I'm guessing it was lots of boxes of cigars.)
-$830.57 on alcohol (surprisingly low, as I'd wager that's lower than most farkers' annual alcohol budgets; but again, these are non-approved expenses, so only a drop in the alcoholic bucket)
-$2,073.29 on dry cleaning (I don't even. What, a different $20-to-clean ballgown every week? That's still only halfway there...)
-$1,149.43 on grocery store purchases (which could feed a poor family of 4 for a year - this is what JJJr WASTED on grocery items)
-$870.71 at drug stores (I don't want to know what he was buying $870 of every year. No way.)

But the elk heads didn't eat, because they were stuffed.

Look man, if you want to get to Jesse Jackson Jr, you gotta go through Jesse Jackson Sr, and about one vapid intake nurse, two locked ward doors, three plump psychiatrists, four burly orderlies, five greviously emotionally injured schizophrenics, and six teddy bears on the blankets of young Mr. Jackson's bunk bed, whereunder he's cowering 'neath the sheets like the owned idiat biatch he be. Nastee.....Ms. Jackson. Dem. shoes fit, you must not acquit.

So we have to pay for our own campaign elk heads?

Mounting beavers is still okay right?

From Hell, Nixon is laughing and thinking "You damn idiot, never go with something obvious like elk heads!"
