Mrs. JJJr Under Investigation
- Jackson, who reportedly has been under investigation by federal prosecutors for possible misuse of campaign funds, has been on a leave of absence from Congress since June, but was re-elected last week despite his legal and medical troubles.
Meantime, according to the Wall Street Journal, federal prosecutors in Washington, D.C., have expanded their investigation of the congressman, and are now also looking at his wife’s conduct.
WBBM Newsradio’s Regine Schlesinger reports, according to the Wall Street Journal, sources familiar with the investigation said prosecutors are reviewing evidence Jackson’s wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th), might have been complicit in the misuse of campaign money to decorate their home.
The Journal reports prosecutors have made no decisions about pursuing charges against Ald. Jackson.
You have to wonder if that open microphone that caught Jesse Sr. threatening to remove portions of then-Senator Sparklefarts anatomy may have directly contributed to the direction of this investigation. What better revenge than sidelining Jesse Sr, jailing his son and removing any chance of his daughter-in-law holding further public office, except at the whim of Obama? It's so very Chicago at heart.
