An unnamed source said that Jackson was “finding it difficult to continue his treatment" for depression related to bipolar disorder, "because the press is staking out his (D.C.) home and making access to his doctor, who is within a short walking distance from his home, incredibly hard," columnist Michael Sneed wrote.
The reported move comes following news that Jackson is under an FBI investigation for his use of campaign funds.
“He said his doctors are considering sending him back to Mayo Clinic for treatment," said the Sun-Times' source. Jackson is reportedly recuperating at home and on leave from Congress, but intends to seek re-election, the paper reported.
The troubled U.S. representative drew both concern and scrutiny in D.C. and Illinois earlier this year when he seemingly vanished for months before taking an extended medical leave from Congress on June 10. His office confirmed in August that Jackson received treatment at the Mayo Clinic for depression.
His chief of staff told reporters last month that Jackson "is convalescing with his wife and children at home in Washington," according to Reuters.
