Listings for Jesse Jackson Jr. home taken out of public view

Even though both the ad listing and the YouTube video were taken down, Jackson's office has made no indication that the $2.5 million home is no longer up for sale.

On Wednesday news broke that the Illinois congressman had put the house up for sale on Sept. 8 in order to help pay for medical bills he owed as a result of receiving treatment for Bipolar II mood disorder.

The house listing sparked speculation that the congressman would not run for reelection. But Jackson has maintained that he plans to run for another term.

Jackson took a leave of absence from Congress on June 10, initially saying he was suffering from exhaustion but later explaining that he had been hospitalized for mood disorder. Jackson first received treatment in Arizona and then later moved to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. He returned to Washington in early September but has not yet appeared on Capitol Hill.
