Remember him? William Jefferson was famously found with $90,000 in his freezer and said it wasn’t a big deal. Of course, he was lying through his teeth. Well, he is now facing more bribery charges.
Prosecutors said no new charges will be filed because of the allegations revealed in the document, filed late Friday in U.S. District Court in Alexandria and obtained by The Washington Post. But they do plan to use the latest allegations as evidence of a pattern of wrongdoing during Jefferson’s trial.
The government alleges that in 2002 Jefferson, a Democrat, asked a lobbyist for a U.S. oil services company for payments of $10,000 a month for a family member. In exchange, Jefferson said he would help the company promote business in Africa. The lobbyist turned down the request, according to the document.
Of course, this is just another Democrat that has been accused of wrongdoing. Nancy Pelosi has been screeching about how the Republicans are so dirty, blah blah. But, as Michelle Malkin points out over a year ago, the Dems have quite a few skeletons in their closets:
Well, a back-scratching corruptocrat in pastel is still a back-scratching corruptocrat. Case in point: Which congressman is Mrs. Clean considering as chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence? Impeached federal judge Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., who took bribes, lied under oath and was kicked off the bench.
And which colleague is she backing for House majority leader? One of Congress’s leading dirtbags: Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa.
This is just another reason why the Democrats cannot win in ‘08. They are such disgusting hypocrites and they will do or say anything to stay in power. So, my question is: Will America wake up to the stink that is the Democrats? Or will they listen to their babble and vote them into the White House? I guess we shall see. I hope that America wakes up and we can get on with getting the country running again.
As John Paul Jones once said in the Revolutionary War, in the face of a bigger British warship that was pounding his smaller vessel: “I have not yet begun to fight”.
