Jesse Jackson Jr. Investigated For Use of Campaign Funds to Remodel Home

Embattled Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. is now the subject of a federal investigation... and a published report says the probe is over whether Jackson improperly used campaign money to redecorate his home.


Sources say this investigation is unrelated to allegations that Jackson was involved in former Governor Rod Blagojevich’s attempts to sell an appointment to the state’s vacant U.S. Senate seat in 2008.


Jackson remains absent from his job and from the campaign trail, now four months after he checked himself into a hospital for treatment of bipolar disorder and gastrointestinal problems.


Neither he nor his staff will comment on the new allegations.
