Scandal-hit Jefferson wins Louisiana runoff


"Rep. William Jefferson won re-election by a wide margin over fellow Democrat Karen Carter in a Louisiana runoff. He returns to Congress for a ninth term despite an FBI bribery probe in which $90,000 in cash allegedly was found in his home freezer. His presence in Washington could be embarrassing for Democrats, who won control of Congress in part on a platform of cleaning up corruption."

Wow. Breathtaking to say the least. $90,000 in cold cash in the fridge, and he gets re-elected, and by a wide margin, no less. What are people thinking when they decide this man is the one they want to represent them in Congress? This is both kinda funny and sad at the same time. Amazing.(Shaking my head in disgust).
