Kennedy said in the report it was clear Jackson was “dealing with a deep depression.”
Rep. Jackson took a leave from Congress in June.

  1. Calling Jesse Jackson, Jr. and his family's name in prayer…right now. For that matter, praying for the whole U. S. A. Things are such a mess and seemingly NOTHING better for the country in sight. God help us ALL.
