Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Congressman Jesse Jackson's home in Washington is for sale. His wife says he'll go back to work only when a doctor approves.

He vowed to return to his re-election campaign by Labor Day, a deadline that came ... and went.

Election Day is five weeks away, and Jackson remains out of sight.

It's an absence, both from his job in Congress and the re-election campaign, that's starting to test patience in his Chicago hometown.

More than three months have passed since Jackson disappeared, initially a mystery that was later revealed to be a hospitalization for severe depression and gastrointestinal problems. There have been few updates and no hard answers to questions about his future.

All that aides will say is that Jackson's name is still on the ballot.
