Sneed has learned a plea deal is now on the table between former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and federal authorities probing allegations of campaign fund misuse.
Sneed is told the plea deal includes Jackson serving time in federal prison.
Significant jail time is now definitely a part of the deal, said a top Sneed source close to the probe.
But I think [Jacksons wife] Sandi, feels like she was thrown under the bus by her husband, now that a separate probe has begun on her, a second source added.
Sandi Jackson claims she was stunned by campaign finance abuse disclosures against her husband, who has been treated for mental disorders and allegedly spent $40,000 on a Rolex watch purchased with campaign funds.
Sandi Jackson was advised to get a lawyer at least four months ago.
For years, Sandi Jackson was paid nearly $5,000 a month from her husbands campaign fund through her consulting firm, J. Donatella & Associates. The payments continued, even after Jesse Jackson Jr. checked into a mental health facility last year and except for a robo-call did not campaign for the Nov. 6 election, which he won.

My boy was provoked by oppression,
That caused him to suffer depression.
So there's no need for jail,
For him or his tail,
Or for your stupid Freeper's obsession!
The wife pulls $60k a year...just for being the wife. It’s kind of comical. I’m guessing she wakes up now...realizes that he’s been mentally ill for his entire life, and she just looked the other way.
I’ll be surprised if he actually serves a single day in jail. With his described mental illness....seems like a permanent visit to a mental facility would be more in line. The interesting thing is that his Representative deal will grant him health care free of charge for the remainder of his life.
I think Schadenfreude is closest to what I felt when I read this article. I just hope in the years ahead that another “prominent” Chicago Democrat politician I won’t name is treated similarly.
(Hint: Last name begins with and “O”.)
DO I SMELL RACISM HERE?
Awwww, well change your religion while in prison. Only in islam are sins acceptable & rewarded w/ rivers of wine & perpetual virgins.
About time to investigate finances of the “Rainbow Coalition” to see how much Papa Rev. Jackass has skimmed off the top to support his cadre of female assistant “baby-mommas”.
Jacksons - a family of criminals and race baiting shisters.
———hes been mentally ill for his entire life,———
No, he is from criminal stock. Born a criminal, raised as a criminal
The Democrat party is a criminal enterprise.
He will one day be invited to a democrat convention.
DO I SMELL RACISM HERE?
If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck; it must be duck season.
“Jacksons - a family of criminals and race baiting shisters.”
This really puts a dent in their “new” TV series, “The Jacksons of Chicago.” Jimmy Walker and John Amos are going to have to find another gig. Oh well, Earl Butz was at least partially right. Prison is a “warm place to $hit”!
My toilet has a plaque......”The Earl Butz Memorial”. Hung it after installing the electric heater thing. You must be one of them senior types..................too.
“You must be one of them senior types..................too.”
Yup! BTW where did you get the plaque? I’d like to replace the one in my guest bat that says: “The length of time it takes depends on which side of the door you are on”
Oppression... The greatest oppression in this poor boy’s life has been the fact that his father has been arguing against his own right to exist for the last 25+ years.
Why wouldn’t he become crazy and self destructive?
Where’s my Bud franchise ?
Yup! BTW where did you get the plaque?
Unless there is a rift between Jackson and Obama/Holder, Jackson’s kid will never go to jail.
No surprise. Don’t all Illinois politicians eventually go to jail?
I smell a presidential pardon coming down from Papa Barry.
The fact that so many people continued to support and elect this racist creep should scare any normal American.
His district is better suited for a location in an African cannibal culture. Complete insanity and evil.
