Jessie Jackson has added former Chicago Democratic Congressman Mel Reynolds to the
Rainbow/PUSH Coalition's payroll.
Reynolds was among the 176 criminals excused in President Clinton's last-minute
forgiveness spree. Reynolds received a commutation of his six-and-a-half year sentence for
fraud, bank fraud, lies to the Federal Election Commission. He is more notorious; however,
for concurrently serving five years for sleeping with an underage campaign volunteer.
This is an absolute first in American politics: An ex-congressman who had sex with a
subordinate won clemency from a president who had sex with a subordinate, then was hired
by a clergyman who had sex with a subordinate.
Mel Reynolds's new job? YOUTH COUNSELOR !
Is this a great country or what?
