A federal jury has seen video of a former Louisiana congressman accepting a suitcase filled with $100,000 in cash outside a northern Virginia hotel.
The videos played Tuesday are a key piece of evidence in the bribery trial of William Jefferson, a Democrat who represented parts of New Orleans. He's accused of accepting more than $400,000 in bribes to broker business deals in Africa.
how long is it going to take to put this clown in prison? he's been under investigation since 2005.

Don't you know if you are a politician with a "D" behind your name you are above the law. Any Federal Investigators will be called off possibly by BO himself, and the mainstream liberal statist media would not dare report anything negative on a Liberal / Democrat. They are all way too busy making false accusations and trying to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin.....

Come on. Are you that blind? Do you actually think Republicans are the noble, upstanding, righteous party?

Both are corrupt. Stop buying into their b.s. by blaming only one side.

Yes, But the GOP is subject to oversight by a hostile media, the dems - and a black dem in particular - will get a pass.

It's OK people, nothing to see here, he's a Dem, they are expected to be crooked and their followers are more interested in their team having more players than what's good for the country.

Hey, if he plays his cards right, Barry might appoint him to a cabinet position, he'll fit right in.

After the past 8 years, can you honestly say this with a straight face and believe it?

No, first they have to make sure he has income tax problems and if he does, then he gets in.

That seems to be the difference and the point I was trying to make. He who controls the media rules the world.... And it is more than obvious now that the MSM are all a bunch of lap dogs to the left....
