Journalist Accuses Jesse Jackson of Sexually Harassing Her After Speech – He Apologizes

A journalist for The Root accused Rev. Jesse Jackson of sexual harassment after he allegedly grabbed her thigh at an event and said, “I like all of that right there!”

Danielle Young, who works as a writer and producer for The Root, published a 2,000-word piece Monday alleging that Jackson inappropriately touched her as they took a photo together at an event where Jackson served as the keynote speaker three years ago.

“I walked toward Jackson, smiling, and he smiled back at me,” Young wrote. “His eyes scanned my entire body. All of a sudden, I felt naked in my sweater and jeans. As I walked within arm’s reach of him, Jackson reached out a hand and grabbed my thigh, saying, ‘I like all of that right there!’ and gave my thigh a tight squeeze.”

Young said the alleged incident left her “shocked,” adding that she laughed off the incident even though it made her uncomfortable.

“And I continued to giggle as he pulled me in closer, stared down at my body, smiled and told me he was only kidding,” Young continued. “The entire time, my co-worker snapped photos.”

A representative for Jackson released a statement apologizing for the alleged incident. full story
