Jesse Jackson Jr. admits to violating campaign finance law, spending funds on things such as a $40,000 Rolex watch and personal travel expenses for a friend. His plea comes in response to a federal investigation which may have led to his resignation from his congressional seat in November 2012. Jackson wife, Sandi Jackson, could also potentially be charged in the case for receiving $5,000 a month as a ‘political consultant’. Depending on the decision of the federal judge, Jackson could be facing probation or possibly prison time.

An internal control deficiency can be caused by a number of issues but it is primarily defined as an error discovered during internal controls testing (e.g., a payment was coded to utilities when it should have been coded to inventory) or during a review of the internal control evidence (e.g., the internal or external auditors discover the coding mistake rather than management finding it as part of their closing activities). An internal control deficiency may also occur simply from someone forgetting to execute one of their internal controls entirely.
