*Well now, isn’t this interesting.

It seems as though Rainbow Push Coalition founder and former Democratic presidential candidate Jesse Jackson is in the hot seat.

Karin Stanford, who was Jackson’s mistress and fathered a child with the civil rights leader, is slapping Jackson with court papers claiming that the former Democratic presidential candidate owes $11,64.50 in child support for their 12-year-old daughter Ashley.

The National Enquirer exposed the long-term extramarital affair in an exclusive in January 2001.

Jackson, who is still married to his wife, Jackie, admitted paternity.  He paid court-ordered support and regularly visited Ashley in Stockton, Calif.

But, according to Stanford, Jackson failed to pay support from Dec. 2010 until Aug 2011, including minimal monthly fees of $400.

“Karin has tried so many times to work with Jesse on their financial agreement,” a source told the Enquirer.  “But he was only paying when he felt like it, so she’s taking him to court.”
