Jesse Jackson Harassment Suit Gets Taiwanese Animation Treatment

A couple of weeks back Tommy R. Bennett, a former staffer at the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, filed a lawsuit alleging he was fired from his job because he was gay.

Bennett contends in the suit he was forced to escort various women to hotel rooms for clandestine encounters with the good Reverend and other acts Bennett deemed "uncomfortable." He was laid off in October 2009 ostensibly for a lack of funding for his job, but Bennett believes a replacement was found and he was fired because of his sexual orientation.

Reports of Rev. Jackson's wandering eye aren't new, but they do apparently merit this video send-up from Next Media Animation.
