#rsrh Jesse Jackson, Jr (D, IL) at Mayo. For depression.

I originally had ‘depression’ in scare quotes in the title, but what the hell

Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., who has been absent from Capitol Hill since mid-June, is receiving treatment for depression.

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota said the Illinois lawmaker had arrived at the healthcare center for “extensive inpatient evaluation for depression and gastrointestinal issues,” in a statement from the congressman, released late Friday by the clinic.

…it might even be true.  Won’t save him if the rumors about corruption are true… which is probably itself depressing for the man, come to think of it.

    “Depression”. That’s kinda like when a performer has to cancel concerts or tours due to “exhaustion”, right?

  • From ME to you says:

    If you had to constantly shill for an administration that considers their plan to have worked wouldn’t you be depressed and have ulcers?

    JJJ is trying for the sympathy vote because the “Do you know who my father is?” vote won’t protect him from the corruption charges, eh?
