Well, you just have to wonder what is going to through Jesse's mind these days....

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote from email:</font><hr> It doesn't get any better than this:

Jessie Jackson has added former Chicago democratic congressman Mel Reynolds to Rainbow/PUSH Coalition's payroll.

Reynolds was among the 176 criminals excused in President Clinton's last-minute forgiveness spree. Reynolds received a commutation of his six-and-a-half-year federal sentence for 15 convictions of wire fraud, bank fraud and lies to the Federal Election Commission.

He is more notorious, however, for concurrently serving five years for sleeping with an underage campaign volunteer.

This is a first in American politics: An ex-congressman who had sex with a subordinate...won clemency from a president who had sex with a subordinate...then was hired by a clergyman who had sex with a subordinate.

His new job? Youth counselor.

IS THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT? <hr /></blockquote> Maybe Jesse Jackson has a spot open for Director of the Boys Choir. Michael Jackson would be a shoe-in considering the type of credentials Jesse appears to be looking at. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
