democrat corruption in Congress continuing on schedule...

Nancy Pelosi, the leading democrat in Congress, a heartbeat and half away from the Presidency, wants to put Congressman William "Cold Cash" Jefferson on the Homeland Security panel.

Jefferson has been embroiled in a nearly two-year-old federal investigation focusing on whether the 59-year-old lawmaker accepted bribes when he attempted to help set up some telecommunications deals in Africa for a Kentucky-based company called iGate Inc. Court documents indicate that the FBI has accumulated a significant amount of evidence in the case, including video of Jefferson allegedly accepting a $100,000 cash bribe from an FBI informant.

The case became fodder for late-night talk show comedians after investigators raided his home and found $90,000 in cash tucked away in a freezer.
Federal authorities are now trying to gain final custody of documents seized in a raid on Jefferson’s congressional office last spring. The materials are under seal, awaiting the outcome of Jefferson’s legal challenge to the seizure.
