My money is on rehab. Or hanging out with Carmen Sandiego somewhere.
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) joined calls Wednesday for more information to be released about the medical condition of Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-Ill.).
“Let me just deal with this briefly in this way: I think Congressman Jackson and his office and his family would be well advised to advise his constituents of his condition. He’s obviously facing a health problem,” he said. “We have many members who are out right now. … This is not an unusual circumstance. People get sick, and when people get sick, they miss work. Everybody in America understands that. But I think his family would be well advised to give his constituents as much information as is appropriate.”
Hoyer made the statement at a press conference after two questions from the press urging him to comment on the issue.
Jackson’s home-state senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) had called for more information on Monday, saying “he will have to soon make a report on what he’s struggling with, the physical condition he’s struggling with.”
