Oh what a surprise that the Congressman with $90,000 in his freezer might actually get indicted for Bribery and Racketeering! Of course, when the FBI searched his home and offices, all of Congress was in an uproar that those places were searched, Jefferson being a sitting Congressman and subject to all manner of extra protection from being investigated. There are 16 counts on the indictment, and I figure his trial will be one for the books.
The real question is, if he’s found guilty, will Congress actually kick him out of the House?
