Skip to comments.Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. Grappling With 'Physical and Emotional Ailments' (He's institutionalized)
Posted on 07/06/2012 3:40:46 AM PDT by Zakeet
Nearly two months after taking a leave of absence from Congress, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s congressional office today said he is being treated at an "in-patient medical facility" for an unnamed ailment.
"Recently, we have been made aware that he has grappled with certain physical and emotional ailments privately for a long period of time," Jackson's spokesman Frank Watkins said in a statement. "At present, he is undergoing further evaluation and treatment at an in-patient medical facility."
Jackson took a leave of absence from his House duties in early June because of "exhaustion." His condition is now "more serious than we thought and initially believed," Watkins said.
"According to the preliminary diagnosis from his doctors, Congressman Jackson will need to receive extended in-patient treatment as well as continuing medical treatment thereafter," he said in the statement.
Jackson, who was first elected to Congress in 1995, is running for re-election this year. He is also being investigated by the House Ethics Committee for allegedly offering money to former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's gubernatorial campaign in exchange for President Obama's vacated Senate seat.

My boy finally figured out ObamaCare ... thanks to you right wing nuts ... and it cracked him up
This is what happens when a lib develops a conscience.
Love the way he is convalescing on our dime and the Cadillac health insurance of Congressmen.
Medical professionals are close to establishing the root of his condition. They determined after a series of long mental test that it originates in his hatred of squirrels, and his desire to starve the critters with his constant muttering “I want to cut of his nuts”
I wasn't aware that doctors had discovered a way to transplant a conscience.....
He must be suffrin’ from Oh-Shit-I-Donts-Wants-To-Goes-To-Jails-Itis.
I’d actually feel for him IF he wasn’t being investigated.
Sounds like he has a mental condition bought on by stress.
Think bipolar schizophrenia
The kid never had a chance in life...given his father.
Proof that liberalism IS a mental disorder.
Definately in a “behavioral Health” facility..
Exhaustion? Really! Another lib word redefinition like the use of siezure instead of intoxicated in the case of (D) john Byson a zero appointee. Taken for face value because the obamscumedia always reports the truth. Marblemouth jr probably has a drug problem
“This is what happens when a lib develops a conscience.”
More likely about to be caught in unethical/criminal actions. ‘Goin’ for the sympathy card.
I get the biggest laugh when I see stories of how the "beautiful people" are admitted to the hospital with "exhaustion".In 20 years of working at a large hospital I never saw a single patient whose admission diagnosis was "exhaustion".
Schizophrenia? Yup.Drug addiction" Yup. Alcoholism? Yup.But never "exhaustion"
The sad thing is no matter what he’ll probably be re-elected in a landslide.
Yeah, given the father! How about the rest of that family tree?
Could anyone really expect a better outcome after being reared by the Rev. (”Love Child”) Jackson?
Heck, he just want to avoid going to jail............
Triple J is suffering from Triple B Disease: Blondes, Budweiser, and Blago. I’d be exhausted too....did you see that chick?
Don’t agree with anything he says, but he probably has very severe problems to be hospitalized for mental difficulties. I’ll pray for him. And may the Spirit open his eyes to truth.
