Illinois Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. called on the House of Representatives to condemn Texas Gov. Rick Perry for his association with a hunting camp known by a racial epithet.
Jackson went to the floor Thursday to read from a resolution calling on the governor to apologize for not immediately "doing away with" a rock painted with the camp's name.
He called on other GOP presidential candidates to condemn the use of the word and said Perry should release the names of state lawmakers and others who attended hunting trips at the camp.
Perry should "condemn the use of this word as being totally offensive and inappropriate at anytime and anyplace in United States history,” Jackson said, reading from the resolution.
