R. Kelly And The Congressional Black Caucus

If I were ever driven enough and lucky enough to actually make it all the way to congress, I think the last thing I'd ever do is schedule a press event with a guy who got booked for 21 counts of child pornography. I mean why throw a sop to the anti-family values vote? Who are they hoping to impress? NAMBLA?

In the CBC's defense, not all of it's members enjoyed being serenanded by the accused kiddy-plooker.

Congressman William Jefferson of Louisiana tells The Associated Press he "would not have invited R. Kelly" to the event. He says other caucus members were worried the singer's presence would end up overshadowing the event.

On balance, these members of congress should never have been willing to walk into the same building as R. Kelly.


As you may or may not already be aware, members of the Watcher's Council hold a vote every week on what they consider to be the most link-worthy pieces of writing around... per the Watcher's instructions, I am submitting one of my own posts for consideration in the upcoming nominations process.
Here is the most recent winning council post, here is the most recent winning non-council post, here is the list of results for the latest vote, and here is the initial posting of all the nominees that were voted on.
