Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is on medical leave from the House due to exhaustion. A spokesperson announced Monday the Chicago Democrat took the leave of absence almost two weeks ago. It's not known where Jackson is getting treatment or how long he'll be away.
He's under investigation in the House for allegedly having an associate offer ex-Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich six-million dollars to replace President Obama in the U.S. Senate. Jackson has long denied any wrongdoing.
