Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is reportedly willing to resign if he gets approved for disability, according to Fox 32 Chicago.
Rep. Jackson, who serves Illinois’ 2nd Congressional District, has been absent from Congress since mid-June, and is reportedly being investigated for misuse of campaign funds.
Sources tell Fox 32 that Jackson will resign if he gets disability when he resigns:
Jackson Jr. was re-elected to his tenth term but last month, sources say, he applied for a disability package–what could be his only income if he resigns. It is expected to take a couple of weeks for Congress to approve or deny the request.
