SHOCK: WLS, a Chicago radio station, reported that Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) may have tried to commit suicide, citing “two high-ranking people on the Democratic side of the aisle, in both fundraising and in the legislative branch,” Politico reports. Rev. Jesse Jackson pushed back, refuting the claims, saying, “he’s with his doctor and getting treatment, regaining his strength.” If he’s sick, why all the mystery?
Of note: WLS radio show hosts admitting talk of Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. attempting suicide is RUMOR, not fact.
