Does anyone else find it strange that there are so many stories coming out about Jessie Jackson Jr. and his myriad of personality and mental disorders? Is there a big fat federal indictment out there and the Jacksons are setting up a defense based on his instability?
CHICAGO — Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. is undergoing treatment for bipolar disorder, doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota announced Monday.
According to a statement from the clinic, Jackson “is responding well to the treatment and regaining his strength.”
The announcement by the clinic comes two months after Jackson, the son of civil rights leader Jesse Jackson, abruptly left Congress. Initially Jackson’s office said the congressman, who represents a district that includes a large portion of Chicago’s South Side and southeast suburbs, was taking a medical leave of absence to seek treatment for “exhaustion.” But two weeks later his office said his condition was “more serious than we thought.”
