Democrats should force Representative William Jefferson to resign

Indicted Congressman seeks bid for 10th Term

NEW ORLEANS (Aug. 31) -- Bribery allegations and jokes about "cold cash" hidden in Rep. William Jefferson's freezer apparently did not matter much to voters two years ago when the New Orleans Democrat won a runoff election for his long-held congressional seat with 57 percent.

It is unacceptable that our party hasn't taken a strong stance against this Louisiana Representative. Even though the media has given us a pass in terms of linking all Democrats with him, we should do the right thing now while there isn't any pressure.
