The House Ethics Committee will continue its investigation into allegations Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. or someone acting on his behalf offered to raise campaign cash for then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich (blah-GOY'-uh-vich) in exchange for a Senate appointment in 2008.
The committee had previously said it would announce by Friday what course its investigation of the Democrat and son of civil rights leader Jesse Jackson would take. The younger Jackson has previously said he expected to be exonerated.
Instead, the committee will continue looking into allegations involving Blagojevich and whether Jackson inappropriately used government resources to angle for an appointment.
A committee statement says continuing the investigation "does not itself indicate that any violation occurred."
Jackson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
