Last week, on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, Jesse Jackson Jr. was spotted by witnesses clubbing in D.C., at the Bier Baron Tavern, according to Gawker.
Gawker reports that Jackson was accompanied by a different woman each night: “According to both sources, Jackson was drinking. “They were laughing and very focused on each other,” one source said of Jackson’s demeanor on Wednesday night. “Not sure when they left but I saw them there around 10:30 p.m. They didn’t appear intoxicated or loud, but were definitely enjoying themselves.”
If true, the reports could be damning for the popular Illinois politician who has not reported to work in the House of Representatives because he is under a doctor’s care for a bipolar disorder.
Issues will get worse for Jackson as The Wall Street Journal recently reported that the FBI and federal prosecutors are finalizing a criminal probe into “allegations that Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. misused campaign money to decorate his house.” Meanwhile, Jackson’s attorneys have asked the Justice Department to not seek an indictment prior to the presidential election in November.
