    Jesse Jackson's Newest Staff Member:

    You can't make up stuff better than this! Isn't politics grand?

    Jesse Jackson's Newest Staff Member, Mel Reynolds


    Jesse 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??

    How can Jackson have a staff?

    Has he ever had a real job?
