Mayo Clinic says U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. being evaluated for depression, 'gastrointestinal issues' - chicagotribune.com
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. is at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota “for extensive inpatient evaluation for depression and gastrointestinal issues,” according to a statement from Jackson sent late Friday by Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo.
Jackson’s whereabouts have been a mystery since he went on medical leave June 10. The statement issued Friday said the congressman “has arrived at Mayo Clinic,” but did not say where he came from.
Friday’s statement offers the most specific description yet of Jackson’s condition. When Jackson’s office first announced his medical leave two weeks after it began, it said the 17-year congressman was being treated for exhaustion.
Jackson, 47, is under a House Ethics Committee investigation into allegations that a longtime friend, Raghuveer Nayak, offered former Gov. Rod Blagojevich up to $6 million in campaign cash to appoint Jackson to President Barack Obama’s seat in the U.S. Senate.
Comment.......The 17 year State Congressmen is found at last....I don't mean anything here when I say, "Found at last"...I just hope he well enough to stand trial for Corruption. The way he is behaving I have a feeling that they have enough evidence to convict him and he knows it. There has to be a rat already convicted for this crime willing to talk to get some time cut from his sentence. What's interesting is, ol Dad Jesse isn't yelling from the pulpit, where ever that may be? There will be time for that later. Now, its classic behavior for someone with guilt issues...I can see the shyster Lawyers setting up their strategy of how to get him off. The race card is almost done with and non-existent. They wore that out with OJ. and the others that followed him..Its the sick card now. The rumor card is in the process of being used and soon it will be the Dad card. What is really good here is you get to use the words Corruption and Jesse Jackson Jr. in the same sentence...On and on it goes. Will someone mention to him that this is far from over...
