Democrat Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. has added former Democrat Illinois Congressman Mel Reynolds to the payroll of Jackson’s extortion racket, the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition.

One of the 176 criminals pardoned in Democrat President Bill Clinton‘s last-minute forgiveness spree, Reynolds received a commutation of his 6½-year federal sentence for 15 convictions of wire fraud, bank fraud, and lies to the Federal Election Commission.

Not content with that illustrious criminal record, Mel Reynolds’ commuted sentencing also included five concurrent years for “sleeping” with an underage campaign volunteer.
