A prominent black member of Congress and a longtime civil rights leader accused the Clinton White House of racially profiling him when he tried to meet Vice President Al Gore in 1993.

As documents the Clinton Library released on Friday revealed, an October 5, 1993, memo noted that the Secret Service asked Rep. Louis Stokes (D-OH) "for identification, although his white driver was not."

Stokes, who served in Congress for 30 years and was a Clinton ally on domestic initiatives, was "understandably furious."
