Blogger Jammie Wearing Fool looks at the possibility of ex-con Mel Reynolds running for Jesse Jackson, Jr.’s Congressional seat and writes, “This is just perfect. A guy tossed out of Congress and into prison for having sex with an underage campaign volunteer, among other crimes, is tossing his baggage into the ring in a bid to win the seat of the disgraced Jesse Jackson, Jr. His criminal history should only serve as a resume-enhancer in that district.”

Another Democrat, former Rep. Debbie Halvorson, might also make a run for the seat. At Power Line, Paul Mirengoff notes that the famously racially torrent and diversity-obsessed left are terrified of “The horror, a white might win Jesse Jackson’s congressional seat.”
