A new report suggests federal authorities have offered former congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. a plea deal that includes significant jail time.
The Sun-Times says the offer is now on the table.
Jackson is being investigated on allegations that he misused campaign funds.
The Sun-Times also reports that Jackson’s wife, Sandi, feels like he threw her under the bus now that she is being investigated separately.
The scrutiny into Sandi Jackson includes claims she had access to her husband’s congressional money.
She resigned as Chicago’s seventh ward alderman last month.
