A friend forwarded this to me. Read it and weep, exhale deeply or just head for the chocolate.

Doesn't it make you proud? Jessie Jackson has added former Chicago democratic congressman Mel Reynolds to the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition's payroll.

Reynolds was among the 176 criminals pardoned in President Clinton's last minute forgiveness spree. Reynolds received a communtation of his six and a half year sentence for fraud, bank fraud & lies to the Federal Election Commission. He is more notorious, however, for concurrently serving 5 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?
