Sandi Jackson Filed Series of Financial Amendments After Jesse Jackson, Jr., Resigned

Five days after Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned from Congress, his wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson, filed a series of amendments to her ward committee’s campaign fund, revealing dozens of previously undisclosed transactions that went back three years. That includes at least $13,000 in previously undisclosed transfers from her husband’s congressional account into her ward organization account, a Sun-Times review of campaign records show.

Among the undisclosed transactions shown in the amended reports were monthly transfers of $1,250 to his wife’s 7th Ward Independent Political Organization — or SWIPO. In a federal disclosure, Rep. Jackson’s campaign fund indicates a $1,250 payment to SWIPO is for rent — he and his wife share campaign office space on Chicago’s South Side. However, the 7th Ward disclosure did not list the purpose of the $1,250 transfers.
On Nov. 27, one of the corrections Sandi Jackson’s 7th Ward committee filed was for the final quarter of 2010. The corrected document submitted after her husband’s resignation showed an additional $20,000 in expenditures for that period and revealed $8,200 in transfers out of her husband’s congressional account.
Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned on Nov. 22, citing a federal probe and an ongoing battle with health issues. The Sun-Times first reported in October that federal authorities were investigating Jackson’s finances. The couple’s finances have been under intense scrutiny since at least before June of this year.

    Chicago is an absolute den of thieves. Corruption is rampant and there is no stopping it because the politicians, police, state and federal on scene officials are all in on it. I say we nuke it from space. It’s the only way to be sure.

    Looks like some of that money was used to buy her a new nose from the same surgeon who butchered Latoya and Michael Jackson.

    The fact that cheating scum like Alderman Sandi Jackson and husband Jesse Junior are tolerated by the Left and Democrats is proof of how amoral half of America has become. If a Republican alderman or member of Congress had been acting like either of the Jacksons, the GOP would have been calling for their resignation. Instead, the Democrats have, as usual, taken the attitude that “they may be pond scum, but they’re OUR pond scum.”

    Isn’t it amazing and invigorating how they express surprise and remorse when they are caught stealing, cheating,or just being big duches. Rule one for progs, blame the staff, blame the software, blame the man. Then move on to next government job.

    My guess is the people who vote for these people are just as corrupt. They undoubtedly believe corruption in gov’t is just the price of doing bidness. It’s a way of life.
