The campaign for disgraced former congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. did
not submit a finance disclosure report for this year’s second quarter,
marking the third deadline from the Federal Election Commission (FEC)
by which his political organization missed.
The regulatory agency
has reportedly sent three warning letters to Vickie Pasley, the former
congressman’s treasurer and a Chicago attorney, for not filing a campaign finance disclosure report for 2012’s year end or the
first two quarters of 2013.
"It is important that you file this report immediately," Friday’s letter from the FEC to Pasley read, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Jr.’s failure to report finance disclosures suggests he may be using
unspent campaign funds to pay for legal bills, which the FEC often
Jackson Jr. pleaded guilty in February to stealing some $750,000 in campaign funds for personal use. He is scheduled to be sentenced on
August 14. His wife, former Chicago alderman Sandi Jackson, pleaded
guilty to failing to file some $600,000 of income on tax returns and
is set to be sentenced on the same day.
If the campaign finance
disclosure reports are not filed, Jackson Jr. could face legal action
from the FEC, an audit or a civil monetary penalty.
