Christy Davis Jackson, the Campaign Manager for Jon Corzine’s 2000 U.S. Senate campaign and the wife of a politically powerful Black Minister, is the subject of a federal criminal investigation related to allegations of a political slush fund at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, according to a Star-Ledger report. Jackson resigned her post as UMDNJ Vice President of Government Affairs in December. The Star-Ledger obtained a confidential memo that says UMDNJ “maintained a political fund to funnel thousands of dollars in contributions to top New Jersey elected officials.” The memo was written by Carol Caprarola, who was a longtime aide to State Senate President Donald DiFrancesco before going to work for Jackson at UMDNJ. A Grand Jury is reviewing allegations that UMDNJ officials were instructed to contribute to political campaigns and then get reimbursed by the school. Jackson is married to the Rev. Reginald Jackson, the Executive Director, New Jersey Council of Black Ministers.
