Stuff William Jefferson said June 4, 2007Posted by daveintexas in Current Events, Politics.
Remember the cash?
Almost two years ago, in August 2005, investigators raided Jefferson’s home in Louisiana and found $90,000 in cash stuffed into a box in his freezer.
Remember the convictions?
Two of Jefferson’s associates have already struck plea bargains with prosecutors and have been sentenced.
Remember the controversial raid of his congressional office?
In May 2006, the FBI raided Jefferson’s congressional office, the first such raid on a sitting congressman’s Capitol office. That move sparked a constitutional debate over whether the executive branch stepped over its boundary.
Culture of corruption.
