Woman Accuses Jesse Jackson of Sexual Assault

Jesse Jackson

Nationwide — It appears that there are enough sexual assault accusations to go around because now Jesse Jackson, a civil rights pioneer, is being accused of sexually assaulting a journalist named Danielle Young.

Danielle recently told her story in a 2,000 word article published on TheRoot.com. Her article includes photos taken from the day of the incident, a detailed account of what happened and how she felt, and an explanation of why she waited 3 years to report the incident.

In her article, she writes: “I walked toward Jackson, smiling, and he smiled back at me. 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.”

“I was shocked, to say the least. Even though Jackson had had his hand reached out, I had no idea that he would touch me in a sexual way.”

“I did what most women in an uncomfortable position do: I giggled. And I continued to giggle as he pulled me in closer, stared down at my body, smiled and told me he was only kidding. The entire time, my co-worker snapped photos.”
