Report: Jackson allegedly used campaign money to decorate home
October 14, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is reportedly the subject of a federal investigation into whether he used campaign money to decorate his Washington home.
The story was reported by the Wall Street Journal.
Just last month the Jacksons put the home on the market for $2.5 million.
They said they needed the money to pay Jackson's medical bills.
The congressman has been treated for bipolar depression and has not campaigned even though he is up for re-election.
