Jesse Jackson Jr.

Former Illinois congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. could have had it all, according to most political observers. Despite allegations, ultimately proven to be true, that he misused $750,000 in campaign funds and had an affair with a Washington restaurant hostess, Jackson sailed to re-election in 2012. He resigned office as part of a plea deal with federal officials related to the misuse of campaign donations.
