Jesse Jackson Jr. Leaves Mayo Clinic
The Congressman, who has been on leave since June, left the Mayo Clinic today
After winning reelection by a landslide in his Chicago-area district, despite not campaigning and barely even being seen in public, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. left the Mayo Clinic today after his second treatment for bipolar disorder.
Mayo Clinic spokesman Nick Hanson said he did not know where Jackson was going after he left the Minnesota hospital, according to the Associated Press.
Jackson returned to the hospital in October while facing a new federal investigation into potential misuse of his campaign finances in the scandal over then-Senator Obama's vacated Illinois Senate seat.
He is still under a U.S. House committee's investigation because of possible dealings with imprisoned former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
