"The world is full of apathy but I don't care."


Perhaps. For those of you that don't read the paper, Jesse Jackson has just added a former Chicago Democrat Congressman, Mr. Mel Reynolds, to his Rainbow/PUSH Coaltition's payroll.

Having the good fortune of working under a woman whom is very well versed in current affairs (and history, for that matter) I was enlightened as to who this Mr. Reynolds really is.

As it turns out, Reynolds was among the 176 criminals that were excused in President Clinton's last minute forgiveness spree. He had received a 6.5 year federal sentence for 15 convictions of wire fraud, bank fraud and lying to the Federal Election Commission. More notably, though (perhaps) he is notorious for concurrently serving 5 years for sleeping with an underage campaign volunteer.

In short: an ex-congressman who had sex with a suboridinate won clemency from a president who had sex with a subordinate and was then hired by a clergyman who had sex with a subordinate.

Inevitably this begs the question? What's Reynolds's new gig?

*sfx: drumroll*


Gollygeegosh. How I do love America.
