WASHINGTON -- Imprisoned former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.s projected release date is now Sept. 20, 2015, more than three months earlier than listed previously, federal officials confirmed Monday.
In another development, Jackson has paid the $550,000 he owed the U.S. government over his misuse of campaign funds, according to a court filing.
There is no connection between Jacksons payment and his new projected release date, according to the Bureau of Prisons. Financial obligations and release dates are unrelated, said prisons spokesman Chris Burke.

Pappy gotta shake down somebody to recoup his losses!
When will he regain his seat? 2016 or 2018?
Repaid the $550K?....Love to see where that money trail originated.
Some animals are more equal than others.
“Repaid the $550K?....Love to see where that money trail originated.”
Yes. Would be interesting.
Lots of felons get out early....so that isn’t a big deal....
550 K is a lot of money....wonder what democrat tree that grew on....
I think it’s called the sucker tree.
My thought exactly, and why I jumped into the thread. Where does a convicted felon get that kind of cash?
What happened to the hard and fast Fed sentencing rules?
It would not surprise me if Jackson Jr starts to lobby for prisoner voting rights upon his release.
I'd be willing to bet that he paid them with campaign funds.
It started in the same place all the money trails start - the taxpayers' wallets.
Don’t worry, when he is released the DNC will give him the same reception the released Gitmo terrorists received when they went home.
Holding him to the same rules as everyone else would be...
need I say it?
Or.... originated by some race bating extortion exercise.
