Former U.S. Representative. Jesse Jackson Jr. is ashamed of his conduct and accepts responsibility, his lawyer told the federal judge, who is deciding the sentences for the Illinois ex-congressman and his wife. Jackson Jr. was found guilty of misusing $750,000 in campaign money on splurges, from a gold-plated Rolex watch and mink capes to vacations and mounted elk heads.
