Media Pundit Named in Jesse Jackson Lawsuit ("Reverend" in Sex Tryst with FNC Pundit Tamara Holder)

Media Pundit Named in Jesse Jackson Lawsuit

Tamara Holder, a Fox News contributor, is accused of having an affair with Jesse Jackson, Sr. in a lawsuit that alleges the illegal use of a gay Jackson employee to facilitate the relationship.

The accuser, Tommy R. Bennett, was Jackson’s personal travel assistant and ran the legal clinic at Jackson’s organization, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. He says he was eventually fired for protesting his treatment by Jackson and other PUSH employees and is seeking hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.

Holder has not responded to repeated requests for comment from Accuracy in Media, but Jackson’s press representative, Lauren Love, says the allegations are false and will be proven so.

Bennett attorney Thomas V. Leverso says that Jackson and PUSH have been stonewalling a legal response for many months but that investigations and the case are moving forward. Leverso tells Accuracy in Media that witnesses have come forward to verify the allegations against Jackson.

Jackson, a minister and Democratic politician who served as an aide to Martin Luther King, Jr., suffered a major embarrassment in 2010 when he admitted to an extramarital affair that produced an illegitimate child.

Bennett worked for Jackson for more than two years and was known as “Aruba Tommy” on local Chicago radio station WVON. The lawsuit alleges that Bennett was subjected to “humiliating tasks” because he was a homosexual, such as “escorting women to his [Jackson’s] hotel room” and then being ordered to clean up after Jackson had sexual intercourse with them.

One of those women, the suit claims, was Tamara Holder, a pundit and criminal defense attorney who claims she “single-handedly” founded what she calls “a pro bono legal clinic at Rev. Jesse L. Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition.”

Jackson,” and states that the Jackson family was informed of this because of a letter from another Jackson mistress. It refers to Jackson visiting Holder’s apartment, while Bennett waited in a car outside, and “several occasions” during which Bennett “was instructed by Rev. Jackson to escort Ms. Holder to Rev. Jackson’s hotel room at the Hilton at Chicago O’Hare airport.”

I’ve seen Tamara Holder on Hannity’s show a few times, she’s a complete dingbat. If she was having sex with Jackson, she probably didn’t even know it.

Is this the same woman that Hannity talks to?

I swear, Hannity is somebody I admire....I'll always respect and admire that he chewed that Rev. Wright “chickens coming home to roost” like a dog with a bone...But he is too nice to some of the left wing fools like this dope and...hmmm...what's his name...Oh....Lamont Hill? Dr. Lamont Hill! Such idiots. They talk real fast and say nothing.

Sean...I don't know who is better on the Left in the talk show circuit...but PLEASE CUT THESE FOOLS OFF.

Bob Beckel is another Dem fool who uses jokes and personal attacks in response to the opposition. You nailed it by suggesting “DR.” Lamont Hill as a possible tryst candidate for Tamara.. She’s probably ‘done’ him too. Perhaps she is related to Eric Holder.. It’s in her blood!

Now you know why Jackson created Operation Breadbasket (his paycheck), then Operation PUSH (for pushing women down under him). Next came the Rainbow Coalition, which meant that he hit on women of every color. At least he didn’t discriminate. White and Black cookies; Ebony and Ivory; Ying and her sister Yang; Piano keys.

This is going to be good. Holder is a total airhead and even a bag wouldn’t solve her problem.

1) Did they use a condom (the pill does not protect against STDs)

2) Did they buy it from Target for $9 / month or did they have to shell out $3000/yr like Sandra "I am the 69%" Fluke?

Cheers!

There’s an article penned by “Ms. Tamara” on huffpo. It’s dated June 9, 2010. She went on and on and on defending JJ.

Her title for her article:

“The Blagojevich Trial Begins — So Should The Clearing of Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr.’s Name”

Isn’t that “special”.

Classic dirty deeds done dirt cheap.

If Sean can get through another of her appearances on his show without a facepalm I’ll be very impressed.

From this article:

Tommy R. Bennett, aka “Aruba Tommy”, who’s sexual orientation is well known, the lawsuit claims, based on his appearances on syndicated radio show “The Tom Joyner Morning Show, says he worked in three positions for the Rainbow Push Coalition, from July 2007 until Dec. 23, 2009....

Given the gay sex and harassment allegations, the imagination runs wild

Holder's credentials aren't impressive. She graduates from John Marshall Law School in 2004 and starts her own firm in 2005. She has no qualifications to give her opinion on anything. What a joke.
