McLean, VA (written by Catalina Camia/USA Today) -- Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. is reportedly under federal investigation into allegations that he misused campaign money to decorate his house, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The WSJ is citing unnamed sources "familiar with the matter" in its story, which reports that the U.S. attorney's office and the FBI are "in the final stages" of its investigation into the matter.
Jackson, first Illinois Democrat first elected in 1995, has been on medical leave from the U.S. House since June 10. He was treated for bipolar disorder and intestinal problems at the Mayo Clinic and released in September.
The congressman is on the November ballot but has not been seen publicly since his illness was revealed.
The WSJ says this criminal matter is not related to a separate investigation into whether Jackson raised money for then-Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich in exchange for an appointment to Barack Obama's former U.S. Senate seat.
