Jackson's Opponent Says 'Campaign Or Resign'

Story by WBGZ Radio

An opponent of U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (pictured) in this fall's election called for the congressman's resignation on Monday, saying Jackson is unfit to serve the district. Anthony W. Williams says Jackson should either campaign or resign.  Williams complained Jackson is out of touch and outright absent from the district.

He says that absence began well before Jackson began his June 10th health leave.  Jackson Jr. has reportedly been treated for bi-polar disorder and intestinal issues.  The Chicago Democrat went on medical leave in July.  As recently as last week, however, it was reported he was back home in his Washington, DC home after spending several months in treatment for clinical depression at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
