Jefferson, you will recall, was the New Orleans-area House member who had $90,000 in cash stored in his freezer, with no explaination of how it got there. On Saturday, December 9th, Karen Carter will attempt to unseat the incumbant in a special run-off election. Watch the video below to see where Jefferson's priorities were; can you guess what might have been inside those three suitcases?
Karen Carter needs your help for this last-minute surge to root out corruption. It doesn't matter that Jefferson is a Democrat; we need to work to get ALL corrupt representatives out of government. Please contribute to Carter's campaign at this ActBlue donation page (link).
LA-2: Worse, Much Worse Than I Made It Sound

A few days ago I wrote about September 2, 2005. That was the day William Jefferson comandeered a humvee to retrieve personal affects from his home as people were still being rescued from rooftops. All told, Jefferson's escapade tied up one Hummer, a five ton truck and one rescue chopper. Soon after, Nightline did a report on the incident, and it was worse, much worse, than I made it sound. Take a look.
