Skip to comments.Rev. Jesse Jackson: No Guess When Son Will Return to Congress
Posted on 09/04/2012 9:25:43 PM PDT by Zakeet
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has been absent from Congress for almost three months and today, his father, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, said he could not even guess when his son might return to Capitol Hill.
I dont want to hazard a guess, Jackson said in an interview on the ABC News/Yahoo Democratic National Convention live stream. I mean, Im a father in this, not not medical adviser, he said. He must make that decision as to whether he can continue to serve.
When Jesse Jackson Jr. abruptly took a leave of absence from Congress in early June, staffers initially pointed to exhaustion as the reason for his sudden disappearance, but ABC News later learned he was being treated for bipolar disorder at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
We love him so much. Were so caught off-guard by what happened to him, but hes recovering, and we want him to take his time, Jackson said. He is slowly regaining, but he must prioritize his health and let nothing come before his health.
Jackson said he visits his son at least once a week and sees improvement.

My little Boobie ain't coming out of that hatch until he finishes the basket he's weaving ... or until the government runs out of money ... whichever comes first!
Golly, what about his constituents?
Good GOD what an ugly SOB! (inside AND OUT)l...and....what is up with that knot in the middle of his forehead..........it is strikingly similar to the knot Muslims get from banging their head on the ground in prayer 7 times a day.......
THings that make ya go Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Never would be good for the people who pay his wages
I'll just be stayin' in the exhaustion ward till I'm feeling up to it. The rigors of my schedule on behalf of my con-STIT-you-ents may just be too much f'me. Yessir.
Come over here sugah. I'm feeling a little bit un-exhausted just at the moment. Mmmm-mm.
Only a corrupt democrat would hold on to power after being unable to serve a 2 year term. You serve at our pleasure sir. Please resign.
“You serve at our pleasure sir. Please resign.”
Yes, let’s replace him with a voting democrat congressman...
doesn’t he have a election to take care of, or does Ill do it the Chicago way it’s his until he decides he doesn’t want it....
Jesse Jr is only playing sick for sympathy to save his corrupt a$$ from charges from the pay to be senator scandal in Illinois when obama resigned to become pResident.
The DA was close to an indictment and this stunt has shut it down for now.
If we had a speaker with cajones, and not Boehner, they’d start the removal process that they can with House rules.
Cut the crap Jessie, your son’s a crack addict and we all know it.
“If we had a speaker with cajones, and not Boehner, theyd start the removal process that they can with House rules.”
Luckily for America Boehner is smart...he knows an non-voting democrat congressman is better than a voting one!
Ah, that is a good point.
Best gig in politics.
How long does it take to get through detox?
Should have resigned a long time ago. But they get greedy when they be in power don’t they?
Well of course we all know this silly, its more fun to make up/fabricate make believe excuses. Freepers are so clever. :-)
With a father like Jesse his brain had to be half scrambled before he discovered the wonder of pharmaceuticals.
I have no sympathy for any of these looters.
Why is there no call to replace him? Do Repubs have a shot at his seat?
Sadly, JJ Jr must be batshit crazy to be locked up as an inpatient for so long.
BINGO!!!! Is he still in the MAYO Clinic??? He’ll stay where he is until the staute of limitations runs out!!
he was being treated for bipolar disorder...HMMMM. A personality (so called disease) is reason for locking him up?
He needs to resign. Yesterday.
