Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has put his Washington D.C. home on the market, raising new questions about his future in Congress following treatment for bipolar disorder.

The Chicago Tribune has more on the story.

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., who has been on a medical leave of absence for three  months, has put his Victorian-style townhouse in Washington, D.C. on the market for $2.5 million, according to a real estate listing.

Jackson, a South Side Democrat, recently left the Mayo Clinic where he was treated for bipolar disorder. His leave began June 10 and he has not returned to the Capitol. Before entering Mayo, the congressman was treated at Sierra Tucson, a treatment facility in Arizona. The Sept. 8 real estate listing, posted on the Metropolitan Regional Information Systems, says the home was built in 1921 and has four bedrooms, three full baths, two half baths, five fireplaces, a gourmet kitchen, a sun room and a rooftop deck with a Jacuzzi.
