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.
