Jackson Jr. Charged With Campaign Fraud

It's been a rough year for former U.S. representative Jesse Jackson Jr., who was charged Friday with misusing $750,00 of campaign funds for personal use. The congressman stepped down last year, due to ongoing treatment for bipolar disorder and the federal investigation. He faces felony charges including conspiracy. Among the reported items Jackson purchased with campaign funds: Martin Luther King Jr., Bruce Lee, and Michael Jackson memorabilia. A campaign to fill his seat in Chicago is ongoing.
