Jesse Jackson Has Hired an Ex-Con Sex Offender For His Staff…And Appointed Him a Youth Counselor-Truth! & Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
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 payroll.
He was not hired as a youth counselor, however, but as a consultant on prison reform.
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 !!!
God Bless America!
