According to reports, Sandi Jackson, the wife of Jesse Jackson Jr. called the media who were sitting outside of her fundraiser at the Park 52 restaurant "jackals."

She said to the audience at her event, “The jackals are outside. Let them stay outside," referring to the media at her birthday/fundraiser party.

Jackson went on to tell the crowd, “We are family in here…it’s because of you all that I keep it going on.”

Before the end of the event, Jackson thanked everyone for the support they have given her husband, saying, “My husband is at home. He is feeling better.”

The event reportedly cost each guest $5,000 per ticket with approximately 200 guests in attendance.
