Same Goes for Bad Democrats

The FBI revealed Sunday that Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA), under investigation for bribery, was videotaped accepting $100,000 in $100 bills from an FBI informant whose conversations with the lawmaker also were recorded. Agents later found the cash hidden in his freezer, according to a court document released Sunday.

Acting like a Republican is as bad as being a Republican. As such, Jefferson deserves to have the book thrown at him, lose his job and his liberty if he's found guilty of what he was alleged to have done on video and during taped conversations.

If we Democrats are attempting to speak from the moral highground, those among us who poison the party with dishonesty and graft deserve the same treatment as crooked Republican legislators, including dismissal, trial and if convicted, punishment commensurate with the crimes they committed.

In short, screw you, Jefferson. If you're as guilty as you seem, you're on your own.
Bend over, MoFo.

I agree, if he did this, he was wrong, and should be prosecuted. No doubt about it.

As a country we're becoming almost desensitized to graft, embezzlement, theft, and dishonesty that we see going on every single day in our political system. Scamming and stealing has become part of our culture. So has living way beyond our means because our own president said that debt doesn't matter. Like the consitution, its just paper.

I used to dread doing business with certain foreigners who came from cultures that value wise merchants who know how to take advantage of a customer. Now that's our culture too, and it starts at the top.

So I agree, I don't care about the political party, a crook is a crook regardless of party affiliation - fry the bastard.

Money in the freezer, for God's sake.

At least he can be corrupt electronically like the Republicans...

Doesn't he have any skills? any pride??

Apparently, he's a typical Louisiana politician.
I hope they combed his place pretty thoroughly- I'll bet there's cash sewn in the drapes, stuffed into the flour canister and floating in the toilet tank.
