Jackson in Plea Deal Talk with Feds

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL), who handily won re-election this week despite being treated at the Mayo Clinic for bipolar disorder, "is in the midst of plea discussions with the feds probing his alleged misuse of campaign funds," the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Jackson "is not only being investigated for allegedly using campaign funds to decorate his Washington home" but also he may "have used campaign funds to buy a $40,000 Rolex watch as a gift for a female friend."
