November 14, 2012 (CHICAGO) -- The Mayo Clinic has issued a statement on behalf of Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.
There is growing pressure on the Congressman Jackson to resign. He is negotiating a deal to plead guilty as part of an investigation into misuse of campaign funds.
His wife, 7th Ward Alderman Sandi Jackson, is reportedly also under investigation.
The Mayo Clinic statement says: "Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is no longer a patient at Mayo Clinic. He departed Tuesday, Nov. 13.

He and his family remain grateful for support and prayers offered and received on his behalf."
