The Congressman would like to personally thank everyone who has offered prayers on behalf of his family."

Jackson, 47, returned to his home in D.C. about two weeks after he was released from the Mayo Clinic, where he was treated for bipolar disorder. Jackson has yet to return to Capitol Hill.

His medical leave of absence has lasted three months thus far.

The listing, posted on Metropolitan Regional Information Systems, says the five-story home was built in 1921. he property was put on the market on Sept. 8
