  •  The diarist talks about his illness.... (7+ / 0-)

    ....but that's not likely what's causing him to resign, since he just ran for office with the same illness.

    I'll bet it's the investigation that's causing him to resign.

      underhanded illegal dealings...just my opinion.

      Not to just pick on Jackson, there are all too many borderline illegal activities going on with ALMOST ALL of our Congressman and Senators.

      Some get caught, others continue to slither around untouched by our laws.

        He's obviously a very sick man, who couldn't even campaign this last election cycle.  People with mental illness struggle to have their illnesses taken seriously, and your comments play right into that dynamic.  How unfortunate that supposedly "progressive" people still trade in this nonsense.  

      •  I doubt the Mayo Clinic would lie for him (0+ / 0-)

        why would they jeopardize their rep and even hospitalize him? They wouldn't, his illness is real.

        America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity
