Former Illinois Democratic Rep. Mel Reynolds was arrested Monday in Zimbabwe after police learned that he was making pornographic films in hotels where he had accumulated $24,500 in unpaid bills, and that he had overstayed his visa by two months.
A former Reynolds assistant told the state-controlled newspaper The Herald that the Democratic pol had been paying a model and several other girls to produce his pornos.
'His travel documents were not up to date and he used to bring beautiful women at different times,' said the former employee, identified only as Sunny. 'He employed five of us including a personal assistant and a driver.'
The Herald also reported that Reynolds had made more than 100 dirty movies and shot some 1,000 nude photos of at least 10 women.
probably because easier to bribe officials there and access to underage women and more difficult to be extradited back to the u.s most likely.
Forget the porn charges for a second. He runs to Zimbabwe...is that where he is from? Why that country? If he made 100 videos he must bring something to the table.
He could have done that in California.
He must have had money hidden there
Like most politicians,,,,crooked as a dogs hind leg
President Bill Clinton commuted Reynolds’ fraud sentence in 2001, with two years remaining to be served. After his release, Reynolds tried repeatedly to regain his congressional seat, including an attempt last year to succeed disgraced former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.
Reynolds acknowledged at the time that he had made “mistakes,” but said his past crimes “shouldn’t be a life sentence.”
Reynolds, a former Rhodes scholar, was a fast-rising star in the U.S. Democratic party when he was forced to resign in 1995 after being convicted of sexual assault, obstruction of justice and solicitation of child pornography.
The former representative made a attempt at his former seat last year, running in a primary race under the slogan "Redemption".

I am sick of these damn Republicans and their war against women!!! OH WAIT! Did you say this guy was a Democrat? *rolls eyes*
Amazing how no matter what group, category, or institution someone may belong to, it just shows how human nature and the lack of morality can lead ANYONE, down a dark path.........
