Whenever one of these lib politicians is being "treated" for some ailment, there is usually some type investigation being done on them and some type of charge is usually coming.

Yep--you nailed it.

"He is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee, facing allegations that he was involved in discussions about raising money for then-Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s campaign in exchange for an appointment to President Barack Obama’s old U.S. Senate seat.

Jackson also allegedly directed a fundraiser to buy plane tickets for a woman described by an associate as Jackson’s “social acquaintance.” The issue came up on the campaign trail during Jackson’s 2010 re-election and in the March primary, which the Democrat easily won. Jackson has since called it a personal matter that he and his wife have dealt with privately."

Is this his mood disorder, or is that something else? I'm sorry. That was not nice. But I do think if you are going to be away from the desk for more then 90 days you should have to resign. As it is Illinois just has one Senator, and Durbin is sick in another way. He is just goofy.
