TMZ questions Jackson Jr. on Michael Jackson fedora purchase

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A photographer for TMZ caught Jesse Jackson Jr. out in Washington D.C. on Wednesday after court.

In a line of questioning, the photographer asks Jackson Jr. why he spent money on a Michael Jackson fedora and not a Michael Jackson glove.

This comes just after Jackson Jr. had just entered a guilty plea in federal court Wednesday to criminal charges for scheming to spend $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items. Those lavish personal items were outlined in a 22-page statement, which included things like fur capes, a mounted elk head, and a fedora once owned by Michael Jackson.

Jackson Jr. keeps quiet as he's escorted down the street, but does seem to crack somewhat of a smile at the photographer's last question: "Did you get to at least wear the Michael Jackson fedora, Jesse?"
