Only In America
Jessie Jackson has added former
Chicago democratic congressman Mel Reynolds to the Rainbow/PUSH
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 Federal
sentence for 15 convictions of wire 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 a 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
His new job? Youth counselor.
Is this a great country or what?
