Share this post

A former Democratic Congressman and convicted sex offender faces pornography charges in Zimbabwe. ABC News reports former Illinois Congressman Mel Reynolds was arrested by police at a hotel, for alleged possession of pornographic materials, and violating immigration laws. Possessing pornography is illegal in Zimbabwe. A state-owned newspaper also reports the former Congressman hasn't paid a more than 24-thousand dollar hotel bill. In 1994 the Congressman was indicted for sexual assault and criminal sexual abuse for having a relationship with a 16-year-old campaign worker. He resigned and was convicted a year later.
