Celebrity News: Jesse Jackson Jr. pleads guilty to spending $750K in campaign money



Sisters, this is an update regarding Jesse Jackson's court case.  Jesse Jackson Jr. pleads guilty to spending $750K in campaign money and says his mind is very clear.   Also, when the judge asked him what was he guilty of, he allegedly admitted to using campaign funds for personal expenses, according to MyFoxDetroit.com.  

Although, his attorney says his bi-polar disorder has very much to do with why he spent campaign funds.  Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Sandi Jackson showed up in court today.  He has admitted to illegally using campaign funds, but we do not know how much time he is facing in prison.   Possibly, the judge appointed over he and his wife's case will be very fair, since U. S. District Attorney Robert Wilkins was nominated to the bench by President Barack Obama in 2010.
 
In the meantime, we will keep Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Sandi in our prayers.
