Early in 2013, then-Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife were both charged with crimes involving illegally spending campaign funds as well as tax violations.

I have a feeling that Obama will pardon a lot of corrupt Democrat criminals before he leaves office. https://t.co/2BZhvznubQ

Got to be kidding me, people who use their political offices to enrich themselves through criminal means deserve no pardon or exoneration!! https://t.co/qNXggt9z3Z
