I'll come out and say it: We need more Congressmen like Mel Reynolds. Or at least more ex-Congressmen like Mel Reynolds. Last month we heard that after serving time in the slammer in the 90s for sex with an underage girl and bank fraud Reynolds had landing on his feet and was working as an expat mogul in Zimbabwe with an alleged sideline as a producer/director of gonzo porn. Now he's hiding out in South Africa to avoid a secret Zimbabwean death squad which he says is out to kill him.
