How about this. Democratic Congressman William Jefferson, has got his ass in a sling for sure. He can deny all the wants (Democratic trait of sorts), but it's on film at eleven. As Perry Mason used to say, "Case closed, Della, get the car!"

Therefore the only question now is not about WHEN he is going down, but who he will take with him when he goes.

"A congressman under investigation for bribery was caught on videotape accepting $100,000 in $100 bills from an FBI informant whose conversations with the lawmaker also were recorded, according to a court document released Sunday. Agents later found the cash hidden in his freezer.

At one audiotaped meeting, Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., chuckles about writing in code to keep secret what the government contends was his corrupt role in getting his children a cut of a communications company's deal for work in Africa."


Of course the article can't help bringing retiring Rep. Tom Delay and his problems into it. Notice you never see the MSM mention a Democrat's issues when discussing a Republican?

"The Jefferson investigation has provided fodder for Republicans who have suffered black eyes in the investigations of current and former GOP lawmakers, including Tom DeLay and Randy "Duke" Cunningham."

Whatever. However, note that Jefferson basically said he will leave off only kicking and screaming, while Delay simply and immediately stepped down. Who's your character baby!

But I digress.

However, this will be a huge scandal for the Democrats as while many think this is just another corrupt Louisianna politician with his hand in the proverbial cookie jar fact is that there are only far more reaching activities involved.

You will remember that Jefferson commandeered National Guard resources so he could get to his house the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina simply so he could hide evidence. In my book anyone one who would sell out his fellow man in a time of need has serious and long standing character defects. One source told me that Jefferson's case cast a wide net.

We're about to find out how wide.

"Mr. Conyers line one"

UPDATE: What is is with Democrats and Africa?

UPDATE II: The Scandal grows. Jefferson digs in.
