Did You Know - Rep. William J. Jefferson

Jeesh - not a good news cycle for the Democrats. But they knew this was coming - will the party discipline him properly, or will they try to cover it up like the Republicans did? The moron should be removed from the house immediately...

From the Washington Post...

Federal authorities accused Rep. William J. Jefferson yesterday of using his congressional office and staff to enrich himself and his family, charging the Louisiana Democrat with offering and accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to support business ventures in the United States and several West African nations.

The 16-count indictment also accused Jefferson, a former co-chairman of congressional caucuses on Nigeria and African trade, of racketeering, money laundering and obstruction of justice. The indictment was handed up by a federal grand jury and capped a long and tumultuous FBI investigation.
