The Distinguished Leadership Award was recently awarded to Indian-origin US Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi in recognition of his outstanding career and dedication to public service.

The Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White presented the award to the Congressman. Raja Krishnamoorthi took it to Twitter and wrote, "It was an honor to receive this distinguished leadership award today from Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White. Secretary White's a true leader, so it felt like the equivalent of receiving an acting award from Denzel Washington."
