Washington (CNN) – Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. is "receiving intensive medical treatment at a residential treatment facility for a mood disorder," according to a statement released on Wednesday by the congressman's office, which attributed the quote to an unidentified doctor.
The Illinois Democrat and son of civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson has not been on Capitol Hill for votes or hearings since late May, and in early June his office announced he was taking a leave of absence because he was suffering from a "medical condition."
big jessie needs to ck on his son....
I wouldn't vote for this guy in a thousand years but I wish him well. Hopefully he can get proper advise.
Whatever might be wrong I wish him the best and a speedy recovery.
Lord knows why this is political, but my thought go out to Mr. Jackson. Get well soon!
Honesty (unlikely in a Jackson)
......no wonder this nation is going to drainage, why doesn't he quit and replace another democrat? Did he introduce single legislation? If he is not well, I wish him well.
