Skip to comments.Jesse Jackson Jr. mystery deepens (attempted suicide?)
Posted on 07/10/2012 4:51:19 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
The mystery surrounding Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., deepened on Tuesday as speculation swirled around the Illinois Democrats health and political future.
Democratic sources say Jackson who has not been on Capitol Hill since June 10 may not return to the House until after the August congressional recess.
Jacksons office said in a June 26 statement that the lawmaker was suffering from exhaustion and would take a medical leave of absence to receive treatment for the condition. No date has been given for Jacksons return, and Democratic lawmakers and aides now believe it could last weeks or even months longer.
I dont think hes coming back until at least September, if he comes back at all, said a Democratic source close to the situation. I think its all up in the air.
ABC News also reported that Jackson will likely not return to Congress until after Labor Day, citing an unnamed source.
But the Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr., in an interview with POLITICO, pushed back on an unconfirmed report that his 47-year-old son attempted suicide.

*sniff sniff*....what white s**t?
he shouldnta tried the generic bath salts.
I’m betting he wasn’t so “sick” that he wasn’t able to cash those big paychecks, though
soldiers in muzzie world work 24/7. they may suffer from exhaustion. a state politician and a libtard? maybe lying makes you tired.
He needs to resign.
Caused by white racism. Mystery solved.
Sniff, sniff... can we now give him that Senate seat already?
I bet he is in a drug rehablitation center and nobody is sayin nuthin.
Exhaustion is a rich persons disease. An ordinary person cant come into a hospital and say give me a bed; Im exhausted.
Was he stealin’ daddy’s action, Tamara Holder? Cracks me up how Fox still has her on and doesn’t ask her about it.
How much is he willing to pay (cash only)?
Obama’s dealer doesn’t cut coke with baby formula. Too pure for novices.
jackson Jr told tamara holder....”Holder on, I’m comin’”...

Whatever the situation, it's something even a RAT can't abide and I'm guessing it's AIDS related
Think about it ... no one believes zero is straight, but he could NEVER be exposed as having AIDS, right. His "family" and etcetera ...
JJJr has done da'downlow too much.
Suicide would be a natural reaction.
Repentance would be another, better way!
You just may have something there. My guess is one of the the closet racist Republicans said the word “Monday” and Jackson heard it. Probably went into a catatonic shock.
'Cause Fox isn't a news operation; it's "Entertainment Tonight" with better looking hosts.
Try Methadone, that might work.
Tamara Holder? A mistress to Jesse Jackson?
How hard up can that woman be?
Hammer and sickle-cell anemia?
I will say a prayer for him tonight.
His politics are indeed despicable, but he is a man for whom Christ died, and it is a terrible condition to have a mind so dark you want to end your own life.
May his mind and heart be healed, and may the Light of the Lord shine into his soul.
Agreeing with you in Jesus name, amen.
Agreed. If this story is true he needs our prayers.
Sins of the father...
Thanks Free ThinkerNY.
Attempted? Talk about a loser, eh?
It had to be very difficult growing up under a duplicitous, lying, race-baiting, fake chrsitian minister father. Hypocrisy is discerned by the children and it corodes their souls to have such dead-soul parenting, or in Jesse senior’s case, lack of parenting. I used to lsiten to Jesse’s sermons when I was in Skokie for business over the weekends. He sure fooled me into believing he was a Christian man who believed in black men taking responsibility. His slide into supporting abortion so he could be a hero in the dnc equations seems to have thoroughly deadened his soul. God have mercy upon his son and heal his sickness in the soul.
Hang in there Jr. Someday in the future the Dems will be in the majority and you can be the next Charlie Rangel. (I pray that never happens)
I’m thinking booze. Won’t matter though, his election is still certain.
He needs to resign.
He needs to join Blago and Rezko in the federal pen...
I heard some late night comic say that. David Brennan, maybe?
I cannot believe nobody on FOX News has the guts to call her out.

Five words: Tertiary syphillis with neurological complications
Heard on the local news today some Jackson spokesperson flip out when asked about him - they shouted “that’s nobody’s business” - and that my FRiends is the Chicago way.
He won’t be back, I would lay a bet on that.
A few decades ago, the fashionable term was "nervous breakdown." Intellectuals, artists, poets, celebrities, and other sensitive types were allowed to be hospitalized for nervous breakdowns. The publicity surrounding their hospitalizations gave them a kind of mystique, e.g. Sylvia Plath and James Taylor.
Then when the term began to be applied to too many ordinary people, it lost its cachet.
My first thought was drug/alcohol rehab.
I hope he fully recovers and happily retires to civilian life.
Glad he didn’t kill himself. His father would hold an 8 day wake blame Republicans for killing him and demand an investigation which Holder would start.
