Jesse Jr released from Mayo Clinic; feds investigating wife

Chicago's Grant Park
US Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Chicago) was released from the Mayo Clinic again today. He was being treated again for bipolar disorder.

He was not able to leave his troubles behind in Minnesota, however.

From CBS Chicago:
Jackson, who reportedly has been under investigation by federal prosecutors for possible misuse of campaign funds, has been on a leave of absence from Congress since June, but was re-elected last week despite his legal and medical troubles.

Meantime, according to the Wall Street Journal, federal prosecutors in Washington, D.C., have expanded their investigation of the congressman, and are now also looking at his wife’s conduct.

WBBM Newsradio's Regine Schlesinger reports, according to the Wall Street Journal, sources familiar with the investigation said prosecutors are reviewing evidence Jackson's wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th), might have been complicit in the misuse of campaign money to decorate their home.

The Journal reports prosecutors have made no decisions about pursuing charges against Ald. Jackson.
Jnnior's wife lives in Washington--but as you read above, she is a member of the Chicago City Council.
