According to reports, U.S. Rep Jesse Jackson Jr. is currently working with the feds to work out a deal over accusations that he misused campaign funds.

Jackson was re-elected this past Tuesday despite his long medical leave due to his battle with depression and bi-polar disorder.

Reportedly, Jackson has not pleaded guilty to any charges, however, Jackson is seeking a plea deal.

He is accused of using his campaign funds to decorate his Washington D.C. home and to purchase a $40,000 Rolex watch for a female friend.

The report also claims Jackson is currently being treated again at the Mayo Clinic.

The Jackson family has not responded to the report.

Also, Frank Watkins, a spokesman in Jackson’s congressional office, refused to comment on the reported plea deal.

    When will we start making people we elect to serve accountable for their actions? And we wonder why so many our young black men are in jail, look at our role models. We all make mistakes but wWhen you decide to run for office and abuse the public trust there should be consequences.

    Smart crooked guy this Jackson . He is lying and should not have been re-elected while he is under investigation.
    He learned well from his dad Jesse Sr, who impregnated his secretary ,paid her off ,and was paying himself a salary of over $800,000/yr as President of operation Push ( People United To Save Humanity) The is organization should be renamed Jacksons United To Ripoff Humanity. They are a bunch of con men and liars
