Rep. Jefferson To Get Homeland Security Seat

Rep. Jefferson To Get Homeland Security Seat - AP

I'm sorry, but someone needs to inform House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that being appointed to Homeland Security is not the 'desk duty' that Representative William "IceBox" Jefferson has earned, while he awaits indictment for bribery.

Recall that this is the same Jefferson who took $90,000 in bribe money from the FBI and stashed it in his freezer. Yes, he is innocent until proven guilty, but his waiting time might be better spent on the House Committee on Standards for Official Conduct, or the new Joint Committee on Printing. Perhaps they could add a section on printing license plates to give Rep. Jefferson a head-start.

In any event, this appointment is a continuation of the Louisiana lunacy that sent this alleged crook back to Washington after he got himself so busted. I understand that the Cajun state likes their politicians with some dirt on them, and that's their business, but sending this snake back to Washington is too much.

Unfortunately, the bar for launching voter indignance has been raised to such a point that I suppose "Dollar" Bill needed to get caught laying in bed on top of the Bureau's 90 grand with a naked White woman, to capture the ire of La. voters.
