Culture of Corruption Indeed...

That would be the pot calling the kettle black. U.S. Democratic Rep. William Jefferson was indicted on 16 charges of bribery and other assorted charges. This is the same guy who was caught with $90,000 wrapped in foil hidden in 9 frozen food containers with each containing $10,000. A further raid on his congressional office netted yet more incriminating evidence against him. This raid is in the middle of a challenge since he believes that it should be off limits to searches by law enforcement. Yea, he said that with a straight face. At least he's come out and stated that he thinks he's above the law. And this is the same party that vowed to clean up the swamp right?

There is a movement in the congress to expel him and so far there is no democratic resistance to the move, but when push comes to shove it may be a different story. This is not the only time the democrats have been caught with their hand in the cookie jar, the difference is that this time it's going to go to trial. Of course, Queen Pelosi's dealings need to have a light shined on them as to Sen. Feinstien's actions, but don't hold your breath.,2933,277774,00.html
