CHICAGO - A spokesperson for Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL) today released the following statement regarding the Senator’s medical condition:
“On Saturday, Senator Kirk checked himself into Lake Forest Hospital, where doctors discovered a carotid artery dissection in the right side of his neck. He was transferred to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, where further tests revealed that he had suffered an ischemic stroke. Early this morning the Senator underwent surgery to relieve swelling around his brain stemming from the stroke. The surgery was successful. Due to his young age, good health and the nature of the stroke, doctors are very confident in the Senator’s recovery over the weeks ahead.”
Senator Kirk, a Republican, was elected in 2010 to fill the senate seat vacated by Barack Obama when he ascended to the presidency; Roland Burris was appointed to fill the position in the interim.
Because the whole thing has been surrounded by so much controversy (I mean, it cost us a governor, after all), the conspiracy theorists are abounding right now….but not all conspiracies are theories, as we’ve come to understand through the years.
Your thoughts on the matter…?
