Sun-Times: Sandi Jackson Changed Jesse Jr.’s Reports, $ Moved to Her Campaign


Now we have a clearer picture of why Chicago Alderman Sandi Jackson declined to run for her husband’s congressional seat.  The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting this morning that after her husband announced his resignation from Congress on November 21, Sandi Jackson altered several of his campaign finance reports going back three years.

Both former Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. and his wife Sandi are under FBI scrutiny.  The Chicago Sun-Times story indicates that the transfers include, “at least $13,000 in previously undisclosed transfers from her husband’s congressional account into her ward organization account.”

“Among the undisclosed transactions shown in the amended reports were monthly transfers of $1,250 to his wife’s 7th Ward Independent Political Organization,” the Sun-Times story reads.  See the full story here.
