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.
"The work I do is confidential."

"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."
