Jesse Jackson Has
Hired an Ex-Con Sex Offender For His Staff...And Appointed Him a Youth
eRumor The eRumor says that the
Rev. Jesse Jackson has added former Chicago Democratic Congressman
Mel Reynolds to the staff of the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition.
According to the eRumor, Reynolds was serving a federal sentence in
prison for convictions of wire fraud, bank fraud, and lies to the
Federal Election Commission. He was also serving five years
for sleeping with an underage campaign volunteer. Then,
Reynolds was among those given pardons by outgoing President Bill
Clinton. According to the eRumor, it's the first time that 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. The eRumor adds that
Reynolds has been hired as a youth counselor.
Truth The text for this eRumor is taken from an article written by Deroy Murdock, a columnist for
the Scripps Howard News Service. It was published on February 9,
2001. The facts about Reynolds, his convictions, and his
pardon are accurate. According to the article, it is also true
that Jesse Jackson added Reynolds to the Rainbow/PUSH coalition

on prison reform.
A real example of the story as it has
He is more notorious, however, for concurrently serving
five years for sleeping with an underage campaign volunteer.

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?
