Former Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. could be facing more troubles after he failed to file required campaign finance documents.

The federal election commission has warned his campaign that they failed to file a disclosure report when he left office last November.

Jackson has not filed the papers or asked for an extension.

He could face a fine up to $50,000 for failing to do so.

Jackson is scheduled to be sentenced July 1 for misusing campaign funds.

A judge in the case has released more than a dozen letters that have been submitted on Jackson’s behalf for that sentence hearing.

One of them comes from his former colleague, Ohio Congresswoman Marcia Fudge.

She writes, “Jesse was the highlight of our karaoke nights and always made everyone feel like an integral part of, and not apart from, various activities.”
