TheGrio.Com’s Janelle Richards is reporting that a former gay employee of Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition has filed a discrimination complaint against Jackson and numerous staff members.
The lawsuit was filed in early 2010 with the Chicago Commission on Human Rights by Tommy R. Bennett. The 55-year-old Bennett is an openly gay man who has appeared on the Tom Joyner Morning Show where fans know him as “Aruba Tommy.”
In the complaint, Bennett said that he was alllegedly forced to escort women from Jackson’s hotel rooms, clean up his bodily fluids and pick up Jackson’s erectile dysfunction pills.
