Jesse Jackson Jr. political fund fined nearly $18K

Former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is being fined for long-overdue campaign reports.

The Federal Election Commission is charging him with nearly $18,000 in fines for failure to file finance reports for his campaign.

Officials say he didn’t file two reports that were due in April and July of last year.

Jackson Jr. served in Congress from 1995 until his resignation in November 2012.

The campaign hasn’t filed a report since late 2012.

He’s currently serving a 30 month prison sentence for misusing campaign funds.
