Soon-to-be-jailed ex-Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr. is so strapped for cash to repay the $750,000 in campaign funds he and his wife, Sandi, were convicted of grossly mismanaging that he’s placing his D.C. townhouse back up for sale.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the Illinois Democrat has already liquidated a personal retirement account to help satisfy the federal debt.

An online auction of ill-gotten luxury items was evidently canceled after the authenticity of one of the collectibles was called into question.

Per the Tribune, the last time the Jacksons put their Dupont Circle digs on the market, the asking price was $2.5 million.
