House Dems Strip Jefferson of Assignment

June 16, 2006 at 3:33 am Leave a comment

The Democrats have decided that "ethics" will be the cornerstone of their campaign  this fall.  That makes Rep. William  Jefferson something of an embarrassment.  So they voted (99-58) to strip Rep. William Jefferson  of his committee assignment.  

Nancy Pelosi quickly went before the press and announced that this proved that Democrats were ethical, adding "I wish the White House would follow our lead on this."  Well, if the White House discovers  someone  who is keeping $90,000 worth of bribe money in his freezer, I also hope they temporarily remove him from the Ways and Means Committee.  Or something worse.

If you read toward the end of the article, the author does mention that the FBI "claims" it has a videotape of Jefferson taking $100,000 in bribe money and that agents found $90,000  in his freezer.  He also points out that this situation has left many lawmakers "torn."  Cry me a river.
