Jesse Jackson Jr.’s recovery now involves a bar and two different women.
After returning from a stint at the Mayo Clinic to treat his bi-polar disorder, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. was spotted leaving a bar on two occasions last week.
Two sources said that they reportedly saw Jackson drinking at Bier Baron Tavern on Tuesday and Wednesday. They also said that each night he was with a different woman.
“They were laughing and very focused on each other,” an insider revealed. “Not sure when they left but I saw them there around 10:30 p.m. They didn’t appear intoxicated or loud, but were definitely enjoying themselves.”
This week, federal prosecutors reported that they are in the final stages of a criminal investigation on Jackson claiming he used campaign funds to decorate his $1.3 million home.
Jackson has also been tied to Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s attempt to sell President Barack Obama’s senate seat in 2008.
Frank Watkins, a spokesperson for Jackson is sticking by the family’s claims that he is spending time at home recovering under a doctor’s care.
