Disgraced Democratic Congressman whose resignation from Congress opened up Barack Obama's first political opportunity arrested in Zimbabwe after allegedly making 100 porno films and taking 2,000 naked pictures in hotels

Mel Reynolds was allegedly in the country illegally since December, making pornographic films in hotel rooms with at least 10 models
  • He reportedly racked up $24,500 in unpaid hotel bills
  • Reynolds went to prison in the 1990s for the statutory rape of a 16-year-old campaign volunteer, and for bank fraud
  • His resignation from Congress opened up Barack Obama's first political opportunity, when a state senator stepped forward to run for the seat
  • Reynolds claimed Monday that Zimbabwe's immigration police refused to give him his passport so he could contact the U.S. Embassy in Harare


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.

A former Reynolds assistant told the state-controlled newspaper The Herald that the Democratic pol had been paying a model and several other girls to produce his pornos.

'His travel documents were not up to date and he used to bring beautiful women at different times,' said the former employee, identified only as Sunny. 'He employed five of us including a personal assistant and a driver.'

The Herald also reported that Reynolds had made more than 100 dirty movies and shot some 1,000 nude photos of at least 10 women.

Mere possession of pornographic material is a crime in Zimbabwe.

Oh Yes, There is More...

  1. Reynolds' prison sentence opened the door for Jesse Jackson, Jr., who also went to prison, and opened the door for Barack Obama's US Senate run.

    Obama hasn't gone to prison yet.
