WASHINGTON--The campaign fund for Rep. Jesse Jackson (D-Ill.) who has been away from Congress since mid-June--and is now back at the Mayo Clinic to treat his bi-polar disorder and depression--took in $11,550 between Oct.1 and Oct. 16, according to a pre-election report filed with the Federal Election Commission on Friday.

The donors were political action committees; no individual contributions had been made. The Jackson fund reported spending $11,342 during his period, including the $5,000 monthly payment to the firm run by Jackson's wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson, who also runs his campaign. Jackson's general election campaign most public display was a robo call to district voters last week.

JJJr is running with three other candidates in the ILCD 2nd District Race, including Black Candidate Marcus Lewis. JJJr returned to Mayo Clinic for the second time last Tuesday. JJJr did one robo call last Saturday. But was it the voice of JJJr or that of an actor? Joe Lake, Chicago
