Black And Latino Campaign Staffers File Lawsuit Against Dem Illinois Gov Candidate For Racial Discrimination | The Daily Caller

A group of 10 campaign staffers for Illinois Democratic gubernatorial candidate J.B. Pritzker filed a lawsuit against him Tuesday night for racial discrimination.

The staffers say they are suing Pritzker for multiple comments he allegedly made throughout his campaign. They said they are tired of working in a “hostile work environment” and a “cesspool of racial discrimination,” according to Fox 32. Pritzker also allegedly refused to visit one of his campaign offices because the area was “unsafe.”

“Black and Latino workers at JB Pritzker for Governor are marginalized, with their efforts put under a microscope and micromanaged while their white counterparts are given autonomy and concessions. As if the intentional herding of Black and Latino workers into specific areas were not bad enough, the few workers of color who were placed in majoritywhite working environments were likewise subjected to overt and invidious racial discrimination,” the lawsuit reads.
