The Chicago Democrat has been on a secretive leave of absence for nearly seven weeks. The Mayo Clinic in Minnesota released a statement Friday saying the congressman was being treated there for depression and gastrointestinal issues.
Jackson is facing an ethics investigation in the U.S. House connected to imprisoned former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Jackson was not charged and has repeatedly denied wrongdoing.
