Jesse Jackson Jr., wife charged in federal cases

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has been charged with spending $750,000 in campaign funds on personal expenses. His wife was charged with filing false income tax forms.

Federal prosecutors filed a charge of conspiracy against the former congressman and charged his wife, Sandra, with one count of filing false joint federal income tax returns for the years 2006 through 2011.

In a statement, the former congressman says he offers no excuses for his conduct and fully accepts responsibility for the improper decisions and mistakes he has made.
