U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson is expected to tender his resignation from Congress within the hour, a source close to Jackson said Wednesday.
Jackson will hand in his resignation to House Speaker John Boehner, the source said.
Jackson had planned on a press conference to announce his resignation but not able to bring himself to speak about it, the source said.
The announcement comes after mounting pressure faced by Jackson as federal investigators appeared to widen their ongoing investigation into the congressman’s activities.
