The federal investigation into the Chicago House Representative‘s campaign finances has reportedly expanded to include his wife, Sandi Jackson (who’s also an elected official). The two are currently under federal investigation for possible misuse of campaign funds!
Federal prosecutors are reviewing evidence that suggests Sandi Jackson may be involved in the alleged misuse of campaign funds to decorate their Washington, D.C. home!
Mr. Jackson is an Illinois Democrat representing Chicago and other southern suburbs. He’s managed to stay out of the limelight since the spring, which is around the time the investigation began. According to his aides, Mr. Jackson was being treated for depression and gastrointestinal issues at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. They also revealed he later returned to receive care for a bipolar disorder.
No decision has been made on whether to pursue criminal charges against Ms. Jackson. Prosecutors may use the threat of charging her as a means of extracting a guilty plea from Mr. Jackson.
Do you think Jesse Jackson Jr. is guilty as charged?
Could Sandi be considered an accessory?
