    Federal invetigators are looking for some answers from Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.

    The Feds want to talk to Jesse Jackson Jr.

    Federal authorities have asked U.S. Rep. Jackson why former Gov. Rod Blagojevich believed he would get campaign cash in exchange for appointing Jackson to President Obama's vacant Senate seat, sources told the Sun-Times.

    More than a week ago, Jackson and his criminal defense lawyer sat down for an interview with investigators in connection with the ongoing corruption probe of the now-indicted Blagojevich.

    Among the areas of interest, sources told the Sun-Times, was what Jackson told his representatives to convey to the Blagojevich camp on his behalf last year -- a time Jackson sought the Senate seat appointment.
