Wife Says Jackson Debilitated by Depression

In an exclusive interview, Sandi Jackson told the Chicago Sun Times that her husband, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D), had become "completely debilitated by depression."

However, she dispelled rumors her husband attempted suicide or was receiving help for alcohol and drug addiction.

Said Mrs. Jackson: "No, no, none of that is true.

She also said reports that Jackson was upset over the federal indictment of his old friend, Raghuveer Nayak, "can't be true," because Nayak was arrested June 20 -- after the congressman was hospitalized.

She added: "He doesn't know anything about the indictment."
