Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. who has been on medical leave for months placed his Washington DC home on sale.
His spokesman released a statement Wednesday saying the Chicago Democrat and his wife are “grappling with soaring health care costs and are selling their residence to help defray costs of their obligations.”
The Victorian-style town house is listed for $2.5 million. It has four bedrooms, five fireplaces, a gourmet kitchen, a sun room and a rooftop deck with a Jacuzzi.
It was put on the market Sept. 8, a day after Jackson’s office announced he’d been released from Mayo.
