GOP Sen. Johnny Isakson Hospitalized After Fall

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:

U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., was hospitalized after falling in his new D.C. apartment and suffering four fractured ribs late Tuesday.

The Republican’s office said, one day later, that the 74-year-old senator is “in pain but resting and doing well.” “Senator Isakson looks forward to fully recovering and getting back to work for Georgians,” said spokesperson Amanda Maddox.

The three-term senator announced in 2015 that he suffers from Parkinson’s disease. It was not immediately clear whether this week’s fall was related to this condition. Isakson regularly uses a cane to walk and his mobility is limited.
