    Jessie Jackson has added former Chicago democratic 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? Youth counselor. IS THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT?

    He probably tried to be a priest but they have too much publicity. You can attackt he Catholic church but still cannot attack extortionsists.

    What is all this nonsense with complaints about sleeping with subordinates? Happens all the time. Not such a big deal -- except, perhaps, the under age one.

    I can't believe anyone takes Jessie Jackson seriously anymore. The man is an extortionist, a hypocrite and perhaps even a racist.

    Perhaps, my ass... He IS a racist. He called New York "Hymie-town" due to so many Jews one time.

    As far as I'm concerned, he's a sorry bastard.
