Feds Investigating Sandi Jackson: Report



    Former Congressman Jesse Jackson isn't the only member of the house getting looked at by the feds, according to one published report.

    The Chicago Sun-Times, citing sources, reported Monday that federal investigators are also taking an independent look at former Chicago Ald. Sandi Jackson.

    Reports the Sun-Times' Natasha Korecki and Michael Sneed:

    "Included in the scrutiny of Sandi Jackson, who resigned from her 7th Ward aldermanic position last month, is her access and use of her husband’s congressional campaign money, including credit card charges, as well as the movement of money from one account to another, sources say. "

    Sandi Jackson acknowledged to NBC Chicago back in December that state officials had questioned her about a $69,000 discrepancy between her campaign finance reports and those of her husband. She blamed the conflict on clerical errors made by transitioning staff members and said amendments to her reports were being made.
