Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), who is currently serving time in federal prison, has used his time productively, as he's reportedly authored two books.
Jackson told Alabama news site AL.com that the two books he has written are called The Tao of Jesus Christ, and The Last Campaign: A Memoir. Jackson is currently housed in the federal prison located at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama.
Jackson is serving a two-and-half year sentence, on charges related to his having misused campaign funds to buy luxury items for himself. He is scheduled to be released from prison on Dec. 31, 2015.- - Eric Kleefeld
