Jesse Jackson Jr. To Resign..... [View all]

Source: Chicago Tribune

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. will announce his resignation from Congress today in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, Jackson's brother Jonathan Jackson said.

He spoke to the Chicago Tribune by telephone.

The congressman could not be reached for confirmation. Boehner's office also could not be immediately reached.

Jackson, 47, a South Side Democrat, has been treated for bipolar depression and has been on a medical leave from Congress since June. He has been under investigation by federal authorities for alleged misuse of campaign dollars and also has faced a congressional ethics probe.
