Jackson Jr. Being Investigated

    WASHINGTON - DECEMBER 10:  Rep. Jessie Jackson Jr. (D-IL) addresses a news conference at the U.S. Captiol December 10, 2008 in Washington, DC. Jackson had been mentioned as a potential replacement for the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by President-elect Barack Obama. Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (C), who has the power to fill the vacant Senate seat, was arrested at his Chicago home yesterday and charged with corruption after prosecutors said he was trying to sell the seat to the highest bidder.

    Jesse Jackson Jr.’s reelection might not go according to plan now that the Chicago congressman is being investigated for improper use of campaign money.

The Jackson family recently put their D.C. house on the market, apparently to pay for medical bills. Jackson is currently undergoing treatment for bipolar depression and is on leave from office but is up for reelection this November.
