Federal prosecutor blasts Jacksons’ ‘indulgence in the excess’
(MCT) — WASHINGTON — Prosecutors were tougher with former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. than against his wife, Sandi, because they viewed him as the one who enabled the couple’s seven-year $750,000 spending binge in which campaign funds were spent on luxury goods, celebrity memorabilia, spa treatments and travel.
Federal prosecutor Ronald Machen Jr. said in an interview that the Chicago Democrat was the “most culpable” of the two Jacksons. “He enabled this entire thing to take place,” Machen said. “He was the bigger name. When people gave money to that campaign, they were giving money because of him.”
