Skip to comments.Jesse Jackson, Jr., Might Be Heading Back to Mayo Clinic
Posted on 10/19/2012 8:48:37 AM PDT by PBRCat
U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., who is in a world of hurt medically and legally may be returning to Mayo Clinic for treatment.
A source who claims to have visited Jackson said, Jesse is finding it difficult to continue his treatment because the press is staking out his home and making access to his doctor, incredibly hard.
His doctors are considering sending him back to Mayo Clinic for treatment.
The source added Jackson, who is being treated for bipolar disorder during his four-month absence from work, is trying to stay focused and calm to enhance his treatment and is just following doctors orders. Jackson sees his doctor twice a day.
Jackson is recuperating, not working and has no intention of dropping out of his re-election campaign, according to the source.
Congressman Jackson, the subject of a report that he was spotted recently having drinks on two nights with two different women at a bar in Washington, claims the women were lobbyists... friends, according to the source.
Jesse was not working, just chatting with friends, the source added. Gawker reported Jesse and the women didnt appear intoxicated or loud, but were definitely enjoying themselves.
The Sun-Times disclosed on Friday that federal investigators have launched a new probe of Jacksons finances for suspicious activity. A Wall Street Journal report said Jackson was being probed for allegedly using campaign money to decorate his D.C. house and attorneys for the lawmaker recently sought assurance from senior Justice Department officials they would not seek an indictment before the November election. The request was refused.
Ald. Sandi Jackson, Jacksons wife, who steadfastly supports her husband and father of their two children despite public reports of his infidelity two years ago, recently described reporters as jackals at a campaign fund-raiser in Chicago.

someone needs to declare this POS “unfit for public office”
Given his other troubles with the law, is this building an insanity or ‘diminished capability’ defense?
Hard to get to his dealer with all those pesky reporters around?
Sounds like the ‘cure’ didn’t take. Maybe he should try the Betty Ford center.
A Sociopath living by the lie will eventually break down into madness.
With bipolar people, drinking is just a symptom of an underlying mental condition. He should not be drinking at all. I'm glad he's going to Mayo, and hope that the treatment returns him to mental health, abandoning his prior thought-patterns for a healthy outlook on life.
“unfit for office”
They’re Demonrats! No such thing as unfit.
Medically? Barbara Streisand! He's going back on the advice of his criminal defense lawyer,who was the one who advised him to go there in the first place.
“Given his other troubles with the law, is this building an insanity or diminished capability defense?”
It certainly seems that way. If Obama loses JJ Jr. has to get a pardon quickly; he can’t put off prosecution forever.
Good guess. Of course, going out drinking when he's supposedly being seen "twice a day" by his doctor doesn't do much for his case. Anyway, I've worked with many bipolar people and with current medication options, have yet to meet one who needed "months" of inpatient treatment. I can't imagine what is going on with Mayo Clinic, colluding with this BS. The whole ridiculous fandango flunks the smell test big time.
You got it. This has nothing to do with Congress or depression at this point. He knows he is going to be indicted and this is all a show as part of the defense or for a sympathy play.
See Post #8
New investigation on him!
“Vote Democratic on Election Day! The only thing you have to lose are your wallet and your tax dollars!”
Not to mention your freedom, your liberty, and your culture.
Nothing to see here. They were just exploring a video series to star JJjr. Working title, "Prince Jackal - Black Greek Ninja Charioteer" for BET.
Next stop: chariot driver at Medieval Nights.
Of course he'll get a pardon.and it won't be because Osama has a big heart...there's a book coming out that details a conspiracy between Blago,JJ Jr *and* Osama Obama to sell the Illinois Senate seat.
Mayo? Why doesn’t he go to Stroger Hospital?
Mayo Clinic or prison? I suspect this mental breakdown is a cover for some serious criminal activity... I have no proof - it’s just how it feels.
Sandi's also a little antsy. Mrs JJJ is a (gasp) Chicago Alderman. Some of JJJ's financial problems might emanate from all his Congressional "earmarks" that ended up in Mrs JJJ's campaign coffers (/snix).
Course, I'm just a really, really nice person. So, of course, I thought it was really, REALLY nice when Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel spoke out WRT JJJ's medical (cough) condition.
Obama's ex-COS, CHICAGO MAYOR RAHM EXPLAINS
"CHICAGO VALUES" wrt the recent Chick-Fil-a controversy......
Mayor Rahm danced into the controversy after Alderman Proco Joe Moreno (1st ward) publicly announced his opposition to Chick-Fil-A opening in his ward.
Mayor Rham chuckled while doing a graceful plie: "It's easy to do business in Chicago when you know 'the rules.' Chick-Fil-A can open in our town as long as it adopts 'Chicago Values.' "
(1) weekly cash pay off to the alderman;
(2) hire six of the alderman's friends who work only random days of the month,
(3) BIG AL from the Mayor's office picks up all cash in brown paper bags at CFA's back door,
(4) Chick Fil A staff trained to shoot 10-12 customers per month,
(5) Any CFA customers actually killed must be registered to vote as Democrats,
(6) $100,00 campaign contribution to Obama,
(7) free sandwiches and watermelon salsa to Jesse Jackson, Jr, who
is "convalescing," b/c he screwed up buying Obama's Senate seat.
"I made Chick-Fil-A promise to serve chicken sandwiches
on a banana leaf w/ watermelon salsa, said Proco Joe Moreno.
