Jackson Near Plea Deal for Misuse of Campaign Funds

CBS Chicago reports a tentative plea deal for former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) "calls for him to plead guilty to misuse of campaign funds and let a federal judge determine whether he serves any time in prison."

"The former congressman would also agree to repay hundreds of thousands of dollars spent over a four-year-period for things like a $40,000 men's Rolex watch he bought for himself, as well as clothing, meals and travel expenses."

NBC Chicago confirms Jackson has signed the deal.
