Jackson Ailment Considered "More Serious"

A week after Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) announced he was taking a leave of absence, his office released a statement saying his condition is "more serious than initially believed" and he is being treated in an "in-patient facility," the Chicago Tribune reports.

The statement said "recently we have been made aware that he has grappled with certain physical and emotional ailments privately for a long period of time. 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."
