MelReynolds1.jpg
Chicago’s 2nd Congressional District. In 1993 Mel Reynolds replaced Gus Savage, a racist anti-Semite who tried to rape a Peace Corps volunteer during a congressional trip to Zaire and was accused of a drive-by shooting that injured Reynolds during the election campaign. Reynolds only lasted two years before statutory rape and child pornography charges forced him to resign… then he was convicted of a bunch of financial crimes while he was in prison. Now he’s back, hoping to regain his seat after Jesse Jackson, Jr., resigned because of his own financial crimes. Democracy in action, Chicago style.

Representatives are supposed to “represent” their constituents. So, who do you think are voting for these idiots? You guessed it, criminals, drug users, pimps (some with a limp) and other reprobates.

Today’s DNC is basically a living breathing RICO violation. But in the interest of fairness, almost all politicians in Chicago are crooked, Dem or GOP. The culture their is pure political poison & corrupt at it’s core.

It appears that a criminal record is a career enhancer in Chicago. The Second Congressional District of Illinois has a history of electing perjurers, racists, anti-semites, pedophiles, financial swindlers and the mentally ill. They just gave a 64% endorsement to Jesse Jackson, jr. an unstable man who spent the campaign hiding from the law.

Accordingly, I don’t doubt that a criminal sleazeball like Mel Reynolds will get the nod from the voters, if only to avoid the horror of a white man/woman winning the seat.

Those aren’t convictions on his record, those are “qualifications” to run for office, Look at Debbie Washerhands much, both parents in prison but she is running the DNC. The only difference between the mafia and the democrats? The mafia guys are not nearly the assholes the democrats are.

Hell with a child porn conviction Kevin Jennings will be head up this guys election campaign.

Reason 50 kazillion of why Shitcagahole is a cess pool and why I LMAO at all their self brought on troubles. Just as entertaining as the coastal cities of Kommufornia.
This guy is a slam dunk for the office. Good possibility for president in 2016 in the unlikely chance that King Barack steps down. (He has to overcome the Klinton machine first, but he has a big advantage)
Hell, I hope he wins, one way or another. It will be a great laugh and he can’t be any more corrupt, criminal, and sleazy than any other Shitcagahole poltician. Nor the Slime in DC either.

A little rap sheet hasn’t seemed to slow down Marion Barry. I’m guessing it will have very little impact on this fellow’s run for office either. Unless of course the Dems intend to give the seat to another candidate… then he’ll be publically destroyed and eaten by his own.

Being an ex-con, at least he can’t vote for himself! You got to love the Chicago black democracy in action.

A criminal convicted of felonies should not be able or allowed to be placed on the docket or run for office.

They’re not satisfied with regular felons now, they need to run pedophiles?
