November 14, 2012 (CHICAGO)

There is growing pressure on the Congressman Jackson to resign. He is negotiating a deal to plead guilty as part of an investigation into misuse of campaign funds.

His wife, 7th Ward Alderman Sandi Jackson, is reportedly also under investigation.

The Mayo Clinic statement says: "Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is no longer a patient at Mayo Clinic. He departed Tuesday, Nov. 13. Although he is no longer a current patient, he continues to cope with bipolar II disorder and will remain under the care of physicians as part of his ongoing treatment to manage and treat depression. He and his family remain grateful for support and prayers offered and received on his behalf."
