Jackson and wife Sandi Jackson, the 7th Ward’s alderman, would not comment on the Sun-Times story as they arrived for her birthday party Tuesday night.

The story claims that during a meeting October 8, 2008, Congressman Jackson had asked political moneyman Raghuveer Nayak to raise millions in exchange for an appointment to Barack Obama‘s vacated seat.

“The reference to a social acquaintance is a private and personal matter between me and my wife that was handled some time ago. I ask that you respect our privacy,” Jackson said. “I know I have disappointed some supporters, and for that I am deeply sorry. But I remain committed to serving my constituents and fighting on their behalf.”
