Geee Posted October 16, 2012 Share Posted October 16, 2012 Daily Caller: Federal authorities have launched an investigation into whether Illinois Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. misused campaign funds to redecorate his home, according to the Wall Street Journal. Jackson’s lawyers met with federal prosecutors last week to try to dissuade them from seeking an indictment prior to the November election. Federal officials were able to make no such promise. This probe is unrelated to an earlier investigation of allegations that Jackson tried to cut a deal with former Illinois Gov. Rob Blagojevich for the open Senate seat once held by Barack Obama. That case is currently under review by the House Ethics Committee. Jackson, the son of civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson, went on medical leave from his position in June due depression. It has since surfaced that he is seeking treatment for bipolar disorder. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
