Democrat former Congressman and pal of Jesse Jackson, Mel Reynolds is the same old piece of dung he always was. Democrat politicians like Reynolds don’t change. They are loathsome creatures.
We in the civilized non-Democrat world thought we were rid of Reynolds, but his recent arrest in Zimbabwe for over staying his visa failing to pay a $24,500 hotel bill and making porno movies proved us wrong.
Those who are not familiar with whom this classic example of a Democrat politician is, are warned to hold their nose as they read further.
Democrat Reynolds is a convicted child rapist. In 1992 when he was campaigning for a Chicago Congressional seat, employing the Clinton method of using power to seduce and rape a female intern, Reynolds raped a 16 year old female volunteer numerous times. After having won his race in the heavily Black Congressional district, the National Democrats tagged him as a “comer.”
On May 13, 1994 Reynolds was named Person of the Week by Peter Jennings because he was an “outspoken supporter” of two women who were organizing to fight child molesters. Reynolds was calling for child molestation to be made a federal crime. Nevertheless, just over three months later, on August 20, 1994 Democrat Reynolds was indicted for child rape. He was convicted of raping the young volunteer several times and an additional charge of child pornography.
In typical Democrat fashion he was allowed to stay in office until October 1, so he could steal a final government paycheck before he was sent to an Illinois prison for five years. Fortunately the law caught up to this Democrat lowlife again before he got out of prison. He was tried and convicted for bank fraud and sentenced to 78 months in federal prison. This sentence was to start AFTER he finished the state sentence, but WITHOUT HIM EVEN MAKING AN APPLICATION Democrat Bill Clinton pardoned Democrat Reynolds before he left office.
Reynolds was released from Joliet Federal Prison on a Friday. Two days later during a service in an African American church, Reynolds was welcomed by Jesse Jackson. Although he was not a member of the staff of the church and without any authority to do so, Jackson offered Reynolds a staff position as a “prison reform coordinator.”
During the investigations that ultimately sent him to prison, Democrat Reynolds was protected by Black supporters who whined about “racism” (of course) but one story about the rape investigation sums up the difference between those who would defend Reynolds and honest people of any color. While investigating Reynolds the police taped him reacting to an offer to have sex with a fictitious 15 year old “Catholic school girl.” Rising to the occasion, Democrat Reynolds gushed, “Did I win the Lotto?” and begged for a picture of the “girl.”
This will be another story the media will pass on.
