Jesse Jackson Jr. Says He’s ‘Not Well’

Jesse Jackson Jr. Says He’s ‘Not Well’

Rachel Weiner
October 16, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Jackson told The Daily on Monday that he is “not well” and has doctor’s appointments twice a day at George Washington University Hospital. He was diagnosed with bipolar 2 disorder at Minnesota’s Mayo Clinic. Jackson did not respond to questions about a criminal probe into allegations that he used campaign funds to redecorate his house.

According to Gawker, Jackson Jr. was spotted drinking at the Bier Baron Tavern in Washington, D.C. two nights last week, with two different women. A server told The Daily that he had seen the congressman drinking and smoking a cigar. “Most of the time he’s talking on his damn phone,” the waiter said.

The Post’s Manuel Roig-Franzia has more on Jackson’s disappearance from Congress and his future:

Jackson’s current campaign is a baffling abstraction, but he’s expected to win easily against a Republican challenger in his heavily Democratic district. His wife and campaign spokesman say he is on the ballot and plans to serve if elected. But no events are scheduled, and Jackson’s campaign spokesman, Kevin Lampe, declined to say whether any advertisements or mailers have been purchased.

According to a spokesman, Jackson’s Dupont Circle home is still for sale. Sandi Jackson has said the sale was prompted because of a need to pay for her husband’s medical expenses.

I wonder if he'd go back to work if they stopped sending him a check?

Another report said that he's selling the Washington house because it is believed to have been decorated with kick-back money.

It's racist to hold Black males responsible for anything.

It's all an attempt to avoid prosecution.

Like his father he, is a monumental scumbag, liar and extortionist.

He was probably on the phone making an appointment for a Turkish bath. He may need to practice up on his naked martial arts.

Unfortunately, his idiot voters never learn. No matter the crime, they will vote in a donkey if he tells them enough BS and if there is enough “walk about” money in it for them. They never learn from their past mistakes. Most Democrats I know believe everything they are told by the media or whoever feeds them a line. It’s sick.

Here in Indianapolis, they kept re-electing the senile and debilitated Julia Carson until she basically went from the House floor to the mortuary. Then they elected her grandson as replacement (even worse 'cause he's a Muzzie).

The congressional plan (that you pay for) should.

“Not well”,in this case,means that the story on the conspiracy to sell Osama Senate seat is still simmering and JJJr fears becoming another Jim MacDougal.

Good news is his congressional voting record is 100% more pro-American.

Meanwhile, his job approval rating goes stratospheric. Typical leftard tactic... run afoul of the law, then blame craziness and addiction enroute to “rehab.”

In the DC area, I think houses sell like they used to in the rest of America in 2005-2006.

That whole thing about the medical expenses is very fishy. He is a member of Congress and has a wide array of option to chose from when buying his health insurance. The insurance is subsidized by his “employer.” All of the plans I’ve seen cover mental health treatment. Something else is going on here if he is short of money.

“not well” - for once I agree with him. Liberalism is a mental disease.

apply obamacare rules to him and deem him inelligible for any treatment because of his unhealthy habits and let him expire.

Screw him, screw all democrats.

Absolutely!

I think the group therapy they have in prisons might be beneficial to his condition.

As a 73 year old man who has had a recent heart attack, faced the loss of half my blood supple, endured resulting edema so bad I could hardly walk and severe stomach distress, I just can’t work up any sympathy for this whining fraud.

NOT WELL? He should walk in the shoes of millions of Americans who deal daily with REAL struggles are in life.
