According to reports, the wife of Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., Alderman Sandi Jackson, faces the possibility of criminal charges along with her husband.

Jesse Jackson Jr. is reportedly working on a plea deal with the justice department over allegations that he used campaign funds to furnish his Washington D.C. home and purchase a $40,000 Rolex watch for a female friend.

Reportedly, federal investigators are now looking into Sandi Jackson's involvement in the misuse of campaign funds.

Sources claim investigators have not been able to link Sandi to any wrong doing; however, the source also claims the feds may just be using Sandi as a tactic to pull a guilty plea from her husband.

No charges have been filed against Sandi or Jesse Jackson Jr. yet.
