Chicago Alderman Sandi Jackson isnít answering any questions about the medical leave of absence that her husband, Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., has taken.
Sandi Jackson was barraged by questions about her husband at the Chicago City Council meeting on Wednesday. She declined to answer the media inquiries but she said she loves her husband and her primary concern is taking care of their children.
On Monday, Congressman Jacksonís office disclosed that heís been on leave due to exhaustion since June 10 and asked that his familyís privacy be respected. A spokesman said it isnít clear how long Jackson would be out.
Jackson first won office in 1995 and represents Illinoisí 2nd District. He defeated a primary challenge this year despite being the target of a House ethics investigation.Copyright © 2013 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
