Jesse Jackson Jr’s dwindling campaign fund didn’t make many disbursements last month — but it did manage to spend several thousand dollars on a consultant who specializes in campaign fund compliance.

His disclosures show that $3,000 was paid to Whitney Burns, an FEC consultant.

“I just generally don’t discuss my work with reporters unless my client asks me to discuss (something),” Burns told the Chicago Sun-Times. “I have a policy going back 30 years not to discuss my clients.”

Asked if she could say how long she’s worked for the congressman, she said: “No. Which congressman? No.”
