  • Disgraced former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., who pleaded guilty last week to misusing $750,000-plus in campaign money, is writing a memoir in an effort to “clear up his legacy,” two sources familiar with the project told the Chicago Tribune.

    Jackson, 47, will be sentenced June 28 after a seven-year spree in which he used the illicit money for a Rolex watch, celebrity memorabilia, furs, a cruise and two stuffed elk heads, among other purchases.

    Jackson, who has bipolar disorder, took a medical leave of absence from Congress in June and resigned in November.

    One of the Tribune’s sources, who has seen drafts of portions of the memoir, said Jackson was trying to “clear up his legacy.”

    “He has nothing else to do right now,” the source said. “He’s desperately trying to change the narrative of his life story.”
