    Former U.S. Rep. Melvin Reynolds has been arrested in Zimbabwe on suspicion of possessing pornography and an immigration offence.

    He brought several Zimbabwean models and other women to his hotel room where he took photographs and videos, the newspaper reported.

    Reynolds could face up to two years’ imprisonment or a hefty fine if found guilty of possessing pornographic material and deportation for breaching Zimbabwean immigration laws. It is illegal in Zimbabwe to possess any material of a sexual nature.

    Being a former statesman, you would think he would have known better and than it was unlawful to take certain types of pics and films. He should have went to South Africa - they have a up and coming porno industry.

    politics is inherently corrupt...
    any form of decadence by politicians should not come as a surprise to anyone with common sense....

    "This is the latest of several legal problems for Reynolds, an Illinois Democrat, who once was a Rhodes scholar. Reynolds resigned from his congressional seat in 1995 after he was convicted of 12 counts of statutory rape, obstruction of justice and solicitation of child pornography. While in prison he was also convicted of bank and campaign fraud. He was in jail until his sentence was commuted by President Bill Clinton in Jan. 2001."


    Says it all

    Oh well, the experts all agree that child sex deviants never get cured! :( Now why doesn't it come as a surprise that Bill "slick Willie" Clinton pardoned him? Birds of a feather flock together uh man? ;)
