Up late and stumbled across this story while still reeling from the citizens of New Orleans re-electing Ray Nagin to Mayor, the man who 'abdicated the chain of command' during the lead up for Katrina and then let hundreds of school buses become junk as thousands huddled in the Superdome.
The investigation became public on Aug. 3 when FBI agents raided Jefferson's homes in New Orleans and Northeast Washington, where they found about $90,000 in cash in his freezer, law enforcement sources have said.
$90,000 in the freezer. What was this money really for Representative William J. Jefferson(D-LA)? Perhaps all that is left of your kickback money from iGate? I guess the FBI is hauling everything out of the Congressman's office just in case Jefferson and his staff have a shredder accident. I also have to wonder if there is an entire prison wing set aside just for Louisiana politicians?
