Jefferson on the take
It has become clear that Rep. William Jefferson (D-Louisiana) is likely the most corrupt Democrat in Congress. If recent news reports are to be believed, this guy belongs in jail, not in Congress. I'm glad that Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-California) is supporting an ethics investigation against him in the House and that DNC Chair Howard Dean made it very clear one or two weeks ago that he would ask for Rep. Jefferson's resignation if Jefferson were to be indicted. A welcome contrast to the Republican Party, where corruption is endemic and the crooked get supported as long as possible.
