Mel Reynolds going to jail again. Maybe he can bunk with Jesse Jackson jr. It's an Illinois thing. Probably they should just open the Congressional office at the Federal Pen.

Ex-congressman says he's 'given up on America' after sentenced for 3rd conviction


By Dom Calicchio | Fox News


Former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds speaks to reporters after receiving a six- month prison sentence for failing to file tax returns for four years after a hearing in Chicago, May 10, 2018.

A former Democratic congressman from Chicago, heading to prison for the third time, says he has “given up on America” and plans to move to Africa after he serves his latest sentence.


At his sentencing Thursday, Mel Reynolds, 66, got six months in prison for failing to file tax returns on more than $400,000 he received for consulting work.

He also received a scolding from federal Judge Robert Gettleman, who told the Harvard graduate he could recall thinking to himself in the early 1990s that Reynolds had tremendous promise.




“It's a tragedy that you squandered the opportunities you had and the type of person you could have become," Gettleman said.


Reynolds represented Illinois’ 2nd Congressional District, serving from January 1993 to October 1995. He was succeeded by Jesse Jackson Jr., who also served time in prison.

Acting as his own attorney, Reynolds argued it was unfair to give too much weight to his prior convictions, from the 1990s, in calculating a sentence for his conviction at a bench trial last year on four misdemeanor counts of not filing tax returns.



Prosecutors say the undeclared income was money made consulting for Chicago businessmen in Zimbabwe, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

In 1995, Reynolds was convicted of statutory rape for having sex with a 16-year-old campaign worker. Later, he was convicted of concealing debts and diverting money meant for voter registration drives into his election campaign.


“The question is, How long does a person have to pay for mistakes?"
- Mel Reynolds, former congressman from Illinois
“The question is, How long does a person have to pay for mistakes?" Reynolds asked about the older crimes.

At other periods in his life, he had been in the military and raised three children, he said.

“I wasn't just living my life as a wheeler-dealer,” he added.

Reynolds rose from poverty in Mississippi to become a Rhodes Scholar and then a lawmaker in Washington, D.C.

After Thursday's sentencing, with credit for two months served in jail, the Chicago Democrat will end up serving closer to four months behind bars.

Reynolds had argued he shouldn't be imprisoned at all, saying a year of probation would have been the right sentence.

“To put me in jail serves what purpose?” he asked the judge. “To teach me a lesson? ... I've been taught about this racist society ... every day of my life.”


“To put me in jail serves what purpose? To teach me a lesson? ... I've been taught about this racist society ... every day of my life.”
- Mel Reynolds, former U.S. congressman from Illinois
Prosecutor Georgia Alexakis had asked for at least two years behind bars, citing what she described as Reynolds' decades-long pattern of flouting the law.

“There are aspects of the defendant's life that are ... laudatory,” she said. “But the good doesn't outweigh the bad.”

The maximum penalty Reynolds faced was four years in prison.

The judge said he hoped Reynolds would use his time in prison to reassess his life, telling him: “It will give you some time to think where you go from here.”

Reynolds, who will report to prison later, told reporters outside court that he already knew where he would go after prison.

“I'm going home to Africa," he said. "I've given up on America because how long do African-Americans put up with this nonsense?”

The Associated Press contributed to this story.

:roll:


Since he's had business dealings in Zimbabwe maybe he can move there.

I'm sure they have some nice places (shitholes) where he can live.

I wonder if he voted for any tax increases when he was in Congress. :lol:

Evidently he has changed his mind. He might even be a Republican now.

The guy was DEPORTED from Zimbabwe :lol: 80% of Zimbabwe is TRYING to leave the country but Mel had to be DEPORTED (for running up a $28K hotel bill and making pornographic videos of women at the hotel :shock: :lol: ). Must have been all those racist white authorities in Zimbabwe.

He was in the same district as crazy Jesse Jackson Jr. I wonder it the district makes people crazy or do you have to be crazy to run?

It might be the district.

I've posted before about how the 3rd Illinois Congressional has a long history of electing people who are less than honest:

So he already tried "going back to Africa" and that didn't work. You would've thought he would've become persona non grata back in the 1990s with the FIRST round of sexual assault/child pornography indictments, but NO! For politicians of the right ilk, those sorts of legal histories seem to become some kind of mark of pride . . .

Lawsuit: State Dems Funneled $84 Million to Clinton Campaign

Up to 40 Democratic parties at the state level may have participated in a scheme to feed $84 million to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016, a campaign lawyer claims.
Dan Backer, a Virginia-based attorney, filed a lawsuit claiming that the parties planned to bypass federal campaign contribution limits.

“You had individuals giving $300,000,” Backer told the Las Vegas Review-Journal Friday. “They’re not doing it because they care about Nevada’s or Arkansas’ state party. They’re doing it to curry favor with and buy influence with Hillary Clinton.”

Backer, who represents a pro-Trump political action committee called the Committee to Defend the President, initially filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) in December, alleging that Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) colluded with state-level parties to bypass federal campaign contribution limits.

Backer said he filed his latest lawsuit because the FEC failed to act before the deadline.

The campaign finance attorney said records show the Hillary Victory Fund transferred $1.7 million to the Nevada Democratic Party from December 2015 to November 2016. But the state party claimed it received only $146,200 and transferred the money to the DNC.

He added that the Hillary Victory Fund sent the other $1.6 million to the Nevada Democratic Party, but the DNC received the money and it never showed up on the state party’s campaign finance reports.

Other state parties reportedly took part in the scheme as well.

The Idaho Statesman reported that Idaho Democratic Party allegedly chipped in $1.6 million to the scheme in 13 installments, although party officials might not have been aware of how their money had been handled.

In Delaware, state Democrats received $2.4 million from the Hillary Victory Fund over 11 installments before transferring nearly the same amount to the DNC, WXDE reported.

Several spokespersons for the state Democratic parties refuted these claims as nothing more than “a political stunt.”

“This is nothing more than a bogus political stunt feebly designed to distract from vulnerable Republicans’ disastrous agenda,” Helen Kalla, a spokeswoman for the Nevada Democratic Party, told the Review-Journal.

“Let’s be clear, this is nothing more than a Beltway political stunt led by the pro-Trump PAC ‘The Committee to Defend the President,’ one that’s simply designed to distract Delaware voters,” Jesse Chadderdon, the Delaware Democratic Party’s executive director, told WXDE.

Donna Brazile, former interim chair of the DNC, noted that Clinton campaign had influenced the DNC long before Hillary Clinton won the primary against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Brazile revealed in November that former DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) agreed to let the Clinton campaign control party operations. She added that the campaign, in turn, agreed to help the DNC with fundraising to get the party out of debt.



Sounds as if the Clinton campaign and DNC conspired to bypass federal election laws regarding campaign contribution limits.
