(FOXNEWS) – Former New York City mayor Ed Koch is back in the hospital.

Eighty-eight-year-old Koch says he admitted himself last night (1/19) with swollen ankles.

It’s his third hospitalization since September, but a spokesman says this time it’s quote “nothing serious.”

Previous bouts with a respiratory infection and anemia have caused him to seek medical treatment.

The democrat served three terms in New York’s City Hall from 1978 to 1989.
