On Wednesday Bobby Rush (D-IL) wore a hoodie while speaking on the chamber floor in support of Trayvon Martin. He was booted for violating the dress code. What’s the story?
Such passion for the Trayvon case could also come from Rush’s personal life. In the fall of 1999, his 29-year-old son Huey was shot and killed in Rush’s district in Chicago as the incumbent waged his campaign against Obama. The killer got 90 years in prison.
