Former Ald. Sandi Jackson’s divorce from former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. keeps getting nastier.
Now she wants to subpoena television reporter Tamron Hall as well as a Harvey strip club owner, a former restaurant hostess and bikini model Jackson has described as a “social acquaintance” and Jackson Jr.’s father, the Rev. Jesse Jackson — among 12 people she says have knowledge about how the disgraced couple’s marriage fell apart.
Court papers filed in Washington, D.C., last week came after Jackson Jr. sought to subpoena former Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy and two other men, alleging they, too, had insight into the circumstances of the couple’s split.
Sandi Jackson’s lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday. Jackson Jr.’s attorney Brendan Hammer said he would address only “the merits — or lack thereof — of Ms. Jackson’s motion” in court.
Included in the latest subpoena request by Sandi’s lawyers are Hall; Division Street Bath House owner Joseph Colluci Jr.; Jackson Sr.; Beverly Hills-based Jackson Jr. campaign donor Nickie Lum Shapira; Club O strip club co-owner Debbie Diaz; East Oakland Youth Development Center boss Regina Jackson; Alana Ford and Frank Watkins of the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition; Change Hamilton-Hayyim, who worked for both Jacksons; Chicagoan Victor Matos: Oak Park resident and broadcaster Dorris Davenport; and Giovana Huidobro, a former model and hostess who Jackson Jr. memorably described as a “social acquaintance” after it was revealed that she had traveled to Chicago on a campaign donor’s dime.
