Former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. has missed another deadline to report his campaign finances.

The federal election commission has sent a third warning to Jackson’s campaign.

Jackson still has leftover campaign money and FEC records show his camp has not filed a full disclosure since December.

The commission is trying to determine if Jackson is using the money to cover his legal bills.

If the reports are not filed he could face an audit, a civil money penalty, or legal action.

Jackson was convicted this year of stealing $750,000 from his campaign fund.

He’ll be sentenced next week.

    Third warning? How many does he get, or how many would a normal citizen get? This is a joke! How can the American Citizen take the government serious. Special privileges for certain people and certain groups. The rest of us can go to hell!
