Jesse Jackson's New Staff Member
Jessie Jackson has added former Chicago Democrat Congressman Mel Reynolds to 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 federal sentence for 15 convictions of wire fraud, bank fraud and 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 a subordinate.
His new job?
Ready for this??
IS THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT?
He also got a kiddie porn conviction because he was taking nudie pictures of her (she was 15). The liberals are supposedly all about women's rights. They had no problem with Bubba pardoning a child rapist and kiddie pornographer. These things are okay if you're pro-abortion, pro-welfare, and against the war.

Now does anyone need to say anything about the Hypocrite Jesse after reading this??? It really says it all. Scum beget scum, losers and slimbags, well you know the jingle...
If it were a Republican doing all this, it would be on page 1...above the fold in all the MSM dailies.
"If it were up to me, I'd ban them all."
His only stipulation in taking the job was that the "youth" he was going to counsel had to be Catholic girls, no older than 15.
If somebody does not shine a light on this, so that the public can truly understand what a travesty this is... well I just don't know.
Where is Fox news on this?
If it were a Republican doing all this, it would be on page 1...
But, of course. But it is much harder to find a Repub that is a radical sex pervert and scumbag, in contrast to the Dems, where it is getting harder to FIND ONE THAT IS NOT !!!
Pardon me while I laugh.
Reynolds was Jackson's predecessor in office, no?
Its about feeling, not thinking. These guys say the "right things", the media gives them image as saying and standing for the right things, and that's all it takes. Critical analysis of what they do and how it relates to what they say is not part of the program.
It would be above the fold page 1 for a month - maybe longer.
Pedophile for Youth Counselor?
Mel Reynolds had to register as sex offender.
How can he hold this position ?
I've seen this email recently but I too recalled the story as some years old.
