Prosecutors ask judge to let government seize former US Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s 2 homes

Federal prosecutors want the government to seize the homes of former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Sandi.

Prosecutors filed a motion in U.S. District Court Friday asking a judge to order Jackson to forfeit homes in Chicago and Washington, D.C. They also asked for the seizure of a retirement account that contains about $80,000.

Jackson pleaded guilty earlier this year to charges he spent $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items. He is scheduled to be sentenced next month.

As part of his plea agreement, Jackson was ordered to forfeit $750,000. He also was ordered to turn over 24 items he bought with the campaign funds.

Prosecutors say Jackson has so far turned over just 12 items worth about $21,000.

Jackson resigned in November, citing health problems.
