Former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Sandi, lived the high life by funnelling campaign funds to pay for more than 3,000 personal purchases, including flat-screen televisions, pricey memorabilia, appliances for their Chicago home, stuffed toys, mounted elk heads, health club dues and luxury vacations, including a five-day holistic retreat on Martha’s Vineyard.
