Chicagoist: Rep. Bobby Rush Taking Leave From Congress To Deal With Wife's Health Issues

Best wishes to the Congressman and his wife:

Rep. Bobby Rush announced Monday he was taking a leave of absence from Congress to care for his wife, Carolyn, who is dealing with major surgery. Sun-Times Washington correspondent Lynn Sweet first reported the news after asking Rush’s office why the congressman missed two votes in the House on reducing food stamp funding and to defund the Affordable Care Act in the government spending bill.

Rush’s Communications Director Debra Johnson told The Hill the congressman was granted his leave Sept. 12. “He is grateful for the prayers, support and well wishes extended to him and his family on behalf of Mrs. Rush.”
