Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., is back in the nation’s capital but has not yet returned to work. Jackson, 47, returned to his home in Washington after spending a month at the Mayo Clinic being treated for depression, The Washington Post’s congressional blog 2chambers reported.

The House and Senate have returned from the August recess but Jackson was absent from a series of votes on Monday. Aides told the Post they did not know when he planned to return to work.

Jackson’s wife told a Chicago television station he is “home under his doctor’s care.” The brief text message drew fire from GOP challenger Brian Woodworth.

“We have prayed for his recovery; we now take joy that he has been discharged from the clinic,” Woodworth wrote on his Facebook page according to the Post. “However, the first question that comes to mind is, ‘Why return to Washington, D.C., to rest and heal?’” The second, ‘Why call Washington “home”?’ For weeks the Congressman’s Communications Director and Chief of Staff have stated that Representative Jackson would be returning home to Chicago to begin campaigning during Labor Day weekend. We are a tad bewildered over this turn of events.”
