Former Illinois Democratic Rep. Mel Reynolds was arrested Monday in Zimbabwe after police learned that he was making pornographic films in hotels where he had accumulated $24,500 in unpaid bills, and that he had overstayed his visa by two months.

Seriously? The show specifically names the demoRats?
Somebody’s gwine suicide somebody.
This guy was once pardoned by Clinton.
Some New Zealand minister has had to deny he is of reptilian origin. No way this sub species of Clintons could deny it.
From the article...
Reynolds, once a close confidante of Rev. Jesse Jackson, resigned in disgrace after two years in Congress when he was convicted of 12 counts of statutory rape, solicitation of child pornography and obstruction of justice.
Democrat Jesse Jackson Jr., left, replaced Mel Reynolds in Congress and then won 88 per cent of the vote when Reynolds challenged him after his release from prison. But Jackson Jr., the son of Rev. Jesse Jackson (R), went to prison in 2013 for using campaign donations to fund his lavish lifestyle

Birds of feather.
“in Zimbabwe . . . where he had accumulated $24,500 in unpaid bills, and . . . overstayed his visa by two months.”
Turnabout is fair play.
From the article:
“It was Reynolds’ trysts with the 16-year-old campaign aide that opened up Barack Obama’s first opportunity to enter politics.
Following the Congressman’s indictment, state Senator Alice Palmer leaped forward to challenge him in a Democratic primary. Obama immediately put his name forward to win the open state legislative post, starting his meteoric rise to the White House.”
Would I rather have had the pedophile or the Beast?
Yes! This show is just about democrats. In the first season, the show starts out with the scene of a dog being hit by a car and Kevin Spacey the Speaker of the House and the central figure runs out of his house and while others run to get help he strangles the dog to death. Then he looks in the camera and says something like people do not have the guts to do what it takes. The series is so believable that you have to be really alarmed.
An illegal-alien RAT former US Congressman victimizing blacks in their home country...
Story being buried in 5, 4, 3, 2...
Wonder if they are going to enroll him to the Zimbabwe health care system and welfare benefits like they do in the US.
24,500 in their currency was for a pack of gum!
Nobody is named, it’s all fictional and loosely based on a series of British novels. But the main character is the Democratic Whip and thus the people he gets to push around are fellow Dems.
Wasn't this the guy who became famous for saying, "I've hit the jackpot" when the aide said she could bring a friend?
This series is all about democrats. They do not hide it. Thought Spacey was the Speaker of the House?
Here’s hoping the punishment is some sort of slow motion execution.
Having read the books and seen the BBC version, where-in all the characters are in the Conservative Party (same party the author was a member of), I’ll say it’s not really “about” any party. They’re all dems in the US show but most of the major events and story beats, not to mention the conniving nature of the main character, are from the original source. In all 3 versions F.U. (wish they’d actually call him that in the US version) is Whip because it’s the Whip’s job to have all the dirt (and help hide it) and keep the party members in line which is the source of his power.
I did check. He is majority whip.
