Jesse Jackson Jr Still Using His Office To Line His Pockets
Jesse Jackson Jr. hasn't shown up to work for months. He hasn't campaigned this year. But his campaign organization is still funneling money to his wife for campaign expenditures.
Though he hasn't sent out a campaign mailer, video or spoken in public in months, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has spent about the same amount of money in his campaign to hold onto his seat as others in competitive re-election fights, records show.Included in his expenditures are fees paid to a political consulting business owned by his wife, Chicago Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th)."For the last four months, his wife is still getting $5,000 checks from the campaign, where during those months he's in the hospital," said Jackson's Republican challenger, Brian Woodworth.
