Jesse Jackson Jr. is home from his stint at the Mayo Clinic but he’s not totally out of the woods. A source revealed to the Chicago Sun Times that the embattled Congressman, who is the focus of a federal probe over possibly using official funds for personal business, may be heading back to the clinic for treatment for bipolar disorder.
“Jesse wanted you to know he is finding it difficult to continue his treatment because the press is staking out his home and making access to his doctor, who is within a short walking distance from his home, incredibly hard,” revealed a source who visited with Jackson this week. “He said his doctors are considering sending him back to Mayo Clinic for treatment.”
Maintaining a low profile over the last several months, the 47-year-old re-emerged in his Washington D.C. neighborhood recently, revealing to The Daily that he’s “not well.” He also said that he meets with his doctors twice a day.
Recuperating outside the shine of public scrutiny has proven to be challenging for the father of two whose financial issues were unearthed when it was revealed that he was selling his house to cover medical expenses. His wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson is fed up with the media’s relentless pursuit of her husband, calling them “jackals” at a campaign fundraiser.
An official statement as to whether or not he will return to the famed clinic has yet to be released.
