Jackson Jr. to Jail?
Posted by Staff
An exclusive by the Chicago Sun-Times has revealed a plea deal is now on the table between former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and federal officials concerning a misuse of campaign funds.

“Significant jail time is now definitely a part of the deal,” a top source close to the probe told the Sun-Times.

“But I think [Jackson’s wife] Sandi, feels like she was thrown under the bus by her husband, ” a second source added.

Former alderman Jackson said she was stunned to learn about the investigation into her husband, who has been treated for bipolar disorder and allegedly spent $40,000 in campaign funds on a Rolex watch.

A separate inquiry has been made into Sandi Jackson, who abruptly resigned last month from serving on a local governing body representing the Seventh Ward in Chicago. She faces federal questions about the whereabouts of some of her husband’s congressional campaign funds.

“They are trying to sort it out right now and trying to figure out exactly what to do with her,” one source close to Mrs. Jackson told the Sun Times.
