Civil rights leader Vernon Jordan remembered at memorial service
#BREAKING : Civil Rights activist & former adviser to Pres. Clinton, Vernon Jordan has died at 85 @CBSMMiller confirms. His daughter, Vickee Jordan Adams, tell @CBSNews : "My father passed away last night around 10p surrounded by loved ones his wife and daughter by his side."
Vernon Jordan, who rose to prominence as a civil rights activist with close connections in all corners of US politics, has died at 85
My heart is heavy mourning the loss of Vernon Jordan. He was a civil rights legend and someone I had the honor of knowing & loving throughout my life. I will miss our conversations about everything, from his life to the best hymns to the best eggnog recipe. Rest in power, Vernon.
Like so many others, Michelle and I benefited from Vernon Jordan's wise counsel and warm friendship—and deeply admired his tireless fight for civil rights. We hope the memory of his extraordinary presence and the legacy of his work bring comfort to Ann, Vickee, and his family.
The bottom line is one reason Clinton survived is that his closest associates, in particular Vernon Jordan and Betty Currie, experienced acute memory loss before the grand jury. That is not in the Pelosi chart.
