Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. Wants Disability Package In Return for Resignation

As a federal investigation into his alleged campaign finance misconduct continues, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) is willing to give up his congressional seat provided he also receives a disability package upon leaving, according to a new report.

The disability package might be his only source of income, Chicago Fox affiliate reported Wednesday night citing unnamed sources. No terms of the package were reported.

The Associated Press reported Wednesday that Jackson is no longer a patient at the Mayo Clinic, the Rochester, Minn., hospital where he was being treated for bipolar disorder.
