BREAKING NEWS – Chicago, Illinois – A former Democratic congressman from Chicago, heading to prison for the third time, says he has “given up on America” and plans to move to Africa after he serves his latest sentence. At his sentencing, Mel Reynolds, 66, got six months in prison for failing to file tax returns on more than $400,000 he received for consulting work. He also received a scolding from federal Judge Robert Gettleman, who told the Harvard graduate he could recall thinking to himself in the early 1990s that Reynolds had tremendous promise. “It’s a tragedy that you squandered the opportunities you had and the type of person you could have become,” Gettleman said. Reynolds responded and boldly stated, “I feel the judicial system in Chicago routinely mistreats crooked politicians. So as soon as I get out of prison, I am moving straight to Nigeria which is considered the scam capital of the world, where people of my mindset are both respected and revered.”
