Illinois Rep. Bobby Rush, a Democratic Congressman, was ordered to leave the House chamber on Wednesday because he was wearing a hooded sweatshirt in honor of Trayvon Martin.
Rush began a speech wearing a suit jacket, removing it to reveal a hoodie underneath. "Racial profiling has to stop," Rush said. "Just because someone wears a hoodie, [it] does not make them a hoodlum."
It's against House rules to wear headgear in the chamber.
