From CBS 2 in Chicago:

“The Secret Service is under fire for racist and sexist e-mails, including one aimed at Chicago’s Rev. Jesse Jackson.”

“CBS station WBBM-TV’s Chief Correspondent Jay Levine reports the e-mails were just released by the Secret Service as part of a long-running civil rights suit filed by African American agents. They contain racist and sexist jokes and pictures.”

“The one about the Rev. Jackson has now led to a demand for the release of any other insulting references to members of the Jackson family in Secret Service files.”

“More damaging, though, is who sent and received them: top brass, including the former Special Agent in Charge of the Presidential Protective Detail, as well as the Special Agent in Charge of the Chicago field office.”
