|The Rev. Jesse Jackson, April 7, 2012|
The Rev. Jesse Jackson says his congressman son's treatment at the Mayo Clinic for depression is a "game changer."At some point it's fair to ask whoever is speaking for Junior if he's going to return to Congress. Unlike Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois, Jackson's office and his spokespersons have not been forthcoming about his treatment.
The elder Jackson spoke to reporters about U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. on Saturday outside a Chicago movie theater. The civil rights leader was with protesters supporting an assault weapons ban. Jackson said there is no timetable on his son's recovery and asked for prayers for their family.
The House Ethics Committee is investigating Junior for his alleged role in the attempted sale of Barack Obama's old Senate seat.
