It should be noted that Congressman Johnson has been battling Hepatitus C. From the AJC:
The Lithonia Democrat's already-thin frame has shed 30 pounds in the past year. His speech is slower than ever, and he regularly gets lost in thought in the middle of a discussion. He is easily fatigued and often impatient and irritable.It seems to me that Johnson is unfit to serve as Congressman. Rather than ousting him, though, I suggest a full scale investigation. What bills has he authored, supported, and voted for? How is his illness affecting other congressmen? What are his children doing these days? Let's get to the bottom of this!
He was officially declared free of the virus in January, but it has ravaged his liver, resulted in thyroid problems and other health issues, including depression, for which he's also being treated. To keep the disease in remission, Johnson is going through an experimental treatment that he said has been the worst part so far.
