Oh, so he's a homophobe, too!

Besides being an anti-Semite, among other things:

A man filed a lawsuit Friday claiming he was fired from the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition because he is gay.

Tommy R. Bennett claims Jackson fired him unjustly and the civil rights leader forced him to perform “uncomfortable” tasks, including escorting various women to hotel rooms to meet Jackson for sex, according to a suit filed in Cook County Circuit Court.

The claims mirror allegations Bennett made last year in a complaint to Chicago’s Commission on Human Relations.

Bennett claims he worked for PUSH starting in July 2007, and was both an organizer and Jackson’s travel assistant.

Bennett claims he received a letter in December 2009, in which he was told he was being laid off due to a “lack of funding.” But Bennett alleges someone else was then hired to replace him.

But c'mon, this simply can't be! Isn't Jackson one of the first people the mainstream media turns to when they require an opinion on a civil rights matter? He'd never do such a thing to a gay person!
