Porn Charges Dropped Against Ex-Congressman Arrested In Zimbabwe

February 21, 2014 11:59 a.m.

Was ex-congressman Mel Reynolds really shooting pornographic videos and photographs with beautiful models while he cut business deals in Zimbabwe? It seems we may never know.

Reynolds’s lawyer told the Chicago Tribune that the pornography charges have been dropped against his client. Reynolds had already pleaded guilty to violating the country’s immigration laws and set to be deported after his Monday arrest.

As TPM previously reported, the state-owned Herald newspaper had cited sources claiming that Reynolds had shot up to 2,000 pornographic photos and more than 100 porn videos in the company of up to 10 women at a time during his time in Zimbabwe.
