There is no honor among thieves even if those thieves are married to one another.
Former Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. has agreed to a plea deal that involves him selling out his wife in a federal tax fraud probe.
The extensive federal investigation included 2 probes involving alleged campaign finance misuse by Jackson and tax fraud committed by his wife Sandi, a former Chicago alderman.
Jackson’s deal calls for him to repay hundreds of thousands of dollars spent for things like travel and meals with a mistress and a $40,000 men’s Rolex watch he bought for himself.
Jackson’s resignation from Congress was also part of the deal.
Jackson’s pleading guilty to using campaign funds for personal expenses exposed Sandi, his campaign manager, to tax-fraud charges.
