Two big name politicians are calling for Jesse Jackson Jr. to announce what he plans to do.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Illinois Senator Dick Durbin say the congressman owes it to voters to lay out his intentions. This after reports surfaced that Jackson is working on a plea deal in a federal investigation into misusing campaign finances.
"It's incumbent upon him to have a conversation with his constituents about his intentions," says Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago.
"We're in a position of trust," says U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois. "Public trust when we run for office. We are held to higher levels. And if there's been any violation there a price has to be paid."
Jackson left the Minnesota Mayo Clinic today, where he'd been staying for several weeks while getting treated for mental illness.
