Jackson Writing a Memoir

Disgraced former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL), who pleaded guilty last week to misusing $750,000-plus in campaign money, is writing a memoir, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Said a sources who has seen early drafts: "He has nothing else to do right now. He's desperately trying to change the narrative of his life story."

"Putting pen to paper is nothing new for people in trouble with the law. While former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was awaiting trial, he wrote The Governor, a book in which he blamed his downfall on overzealous prosecutors and political enemies."
