Rev. Jesse Jackson reacts to son’s guilty plea
With his son pleading guilty to using campaign funds for hundreds of thousands of dollars of personal expenses, Rev. Jesse Jackson told WGN Friday that he’s proud of the way his son Jesse Jackson Jr. is facing up to his misdeeds.
Jackson did not comment on his daughter-in-law — former alderman Sandi Jackson — who also pleaded guilty on Wednesday, to filing false income tax statements.
But sources tell WGN that Rev. Jackson has spoken to extended family members about supporting Sandi through the ordeal.
