Jesse Jr: A Month on the Lamb
On the lamb from congress for four weeks, Jesse Jackson Jr's 'exhaustion' has been expanded to include 'emotional ailments' requiring 'extended in-patient treatment,' not the sort of thing you confess to if you're planning on having a future.
More than three weeks after Jackson went on leave, his spokesman revealed that the lawmaker had long-standing "physical and emotional ailments," and that the congressman's still-unnamed medical condition was "more serious than we thought."
Few answers are now available about Jackson. His spokesman, Frank Watkins, said Thursday that the congressman needs "extended in-patient treatment" and care afterward. But basic facts are undisclosed: Where is Jackson? What's ailing him?
