Disgraced Illinois Democrat Arrested on Child Porn Charges in Zimbabwe

He’s already a convicted rapist after being booted from Congress for sleeping with a minor back in the 1990’s. Considering he’s a Democrat, it’s also ironic he’s being charged with violating immigration laws.

Melvin Reynolds, a former congressman from Illinois, was arrested in the African country of Zimbabwe, an immigration official says.

The official, Ario Mabika, told The Associated Press Tuesday that Reynolds is being investigated.

The state-controlled The Herald newspaper reported Tuesday that Reynolds was arrested for allegedly possessing pornographic material and violating immigration laws.

Reynolds, an Illinois Democrat, 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.

That report from Chicago almost downplays the severity of the charges.

Reynolds resigned from Congress in 1995 after being charged with 12 counts of statutory rape, solicitation of child porn and obstruction of justice.

The former congressman arrived to Zimbabwe in November, and was given a two-week visa, which was renewed and expired on Dec. 10. He has since remained in the country illegally, the report says.

A source told AllAfrica that Reynolds shot more than 100 pornographic videos and 2,000 nude photos in his hotel room.

AllAfrica spoke to Reynolds as he was being detained. He said he wasn’t sure if he had broken any immigration laws.

“I misplaced my passport but I found it implying that I am not certain if I breached immigration laws against this country.

“I am sure I will find out about that. They denied me my passport so that I can contact the United States Embassy which is a violation of international laws,” Reynolds said.

The report says he also racked up bills totaling $24,500 at two hotels in the area, and hadn’t paid for them.

We surmise he fancies himself a porn producer or something.

According to his former aide identified as Sunny, Reynolds was in possession of pornographic material he shot on different occasions while in the company of a model (name supplied) and several girls in his hotel rooms.

“His travel documents were not up to date and he used to bring beautiful women at different times. He employed five of us including a personal assistant and a driver.

“He currently has unpaid hotel bills of more than US$24 500 accrued at two local hotels,” he said.

Another closely placed source said Reynolds shot more than 100 pornographic videos and a further 2 000 nude pictures while he was in the company of at least 10 women including famous models.

Ironically it was another sexual predator who commuted his sentence.

He served all of his first sentence, and served 42 months in prison for the later charges before former US president Bill Clinton commuted the sentence for bank fraud in 2001.

Reynolds was released from prison and served the remaining time in a halfway house and was hired by Jesse Jackson”s Rainbow/Push Coalition to decrease the number of young blacks going to prison.

Here’s some background from his 1995 trial.
