Bye Mel

  • Former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds is headed back to jail, but for a short enough time — four months — that he said hopes to be living in Africa by Christmas.

    “I’m done with America. I’m going to do this, and I’m going home — to Africa. … I’ve given up on America,” Reynolds told reporters after U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman sentenced him to six months imprisonment for his failure to file income tax returns.

    With credit for two months previously served after he was jailed in 2016 for violating bond conditions, Reynolds will only need to spend an additional four months in custody to complete his sentence.

    Federal prosecutors had sought a sentence of up to 27 months in prison for Reynolds, as suggested under federal sentencing guidelines, largely based on his two prior convictions.
You'd think that someone who had spent some time in the federal system would do everything in their power to avoid spending more time there. But not Mel. Mel's on his third stint. After a meteoric rise from poverty, to Rhodes scholar, to Harvard grad to US Rep, Mel diddled an underage campaign worker, got caught up in bank fraud schemes and failed to file income tax returns for a dozen or more years.

Don't let the door hit you in the ass.

We are losing our best and brightest, over very minor infractions. Mel could have been another Obama.

Once met him at the Ymca on Ashland ave. near united center. He was there for a short time after his prison stint and I was at a asbestos refresher course. He walked up to me during a break, and tried to shake my hand...I knew who he was and looked at his hand and then looked him right in the eyes and said...

"Get the fuck away from me you little weasel"

He didn't say a word...

So violating bond turns out to be a freebie because that time served is knocked off his conviction time. What a joke.

>>>> 'Gettleman light-heartedly suggested Reynolds stay away from Zimbabwe, where he was arrested in 2014 in what Reynolds still insists was a political setup. ~~~ para ~~~ Reynolds told the judge he prefers Zambia and South Africa... ' <<<<

Yeah Mel, forget Zimbabwe, they only like criminals who are native to the land, not interloping crooks from Illinois.

And I'll bet Mel settles on Zambia. The official language is English and the Age of Consent for females is Sixteen -- that's pretty important to 'Short Eyes' Mel. Though Mel better watch out, there's an AIDS Epidemic in the country.

In any case, Good Riddance Mel! Don't let the door hit ya in the ass on the way out.

ps: How come a country in Africa, the 100% Black Zambia, can have English as the Official Language and nobody says shit. But if WE even hint at making English OUR Official Language, a country Founded BY English speaking Settlers, all Hell breaks loose. Every 'minority' and guilt-ridden white snowflake under the sun starts screaming RACISM!.. RACISM!.. RACISM! That doesn't make much sense, now does it!

Many celebrities have threatened something like this, and all have failed to follow through.

Hoping this guy succeeds, and inspires others to do the same.

Guess being a Rhodes scholar and a Harvard grad don't mean what they used to. Idiot!

He says he is relocating to South Africa. Will they allow him into the country after being convicted? He might want to check before selling all his shit and buying a plane ticket!

When he was supposed to be finishing his sentence at the “Freedom Center” at Monroe & Ashland he refused to show up when the district was doing sex offender checks. He was listed as not registered, non compliant. As the Officers were doing the mandatory attempts to contact him before writing him up, a call came from headquarters to stop harassing him? The checks for him will be done by downtown! Rumor had it that he was never at the “Freedom Center”. He was staying on the southside with his admirers.
