U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., who took a leave of absence from Congress June 10 for what was described as exhaustion, is facing a “more serious” medical condition than previously thought, a spokesman said Thursday.
“Congressman Jackson’s medical condition is more serious than we thought and initially believed,” said his spokesman, Frank Watkins. “Recently, we have been made aware that he has grappled with certain physical and emotional ailments privately for a long period of time.
“At present, he is undergoing further evaluation and treatment at an in-patient medical facility. According to the preliminary diagnosis from his doctors, Congressman Jackson will need to receive extended in-patient treatment as well as continuing medical treatment thereafter.
“We ask that you keep Congressman Jackson and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult period.”
There was no immediate word on what Jackson is suffering from nor how long his absence from Congress might continue.
