US Rep. William Jefferson should resign

For the record, if any of you gleeful conservatives out there are asking where the wacko liberal fringe and the Democrats are on the issue of corruption when it comes to their own party....Let me be among the ones who want him to resign, attempt to clear his name (if he can) and stop allowing himself to be a distraction to the corruption scandals rocking the current administration.

If the Dems are going to attempt to claim the high ground, we have to hold ourselves to a higher standard and come down even harder on our own when they fall short of the public trust than we would those in the opposition whose culture of corruption has become the order of the day.

From where I stand, proving innocence is going to be pretty difficult if they have him on tape and recovered the exact same money paid to him as a bribe.

US Rep. William Jefferson, I beg of you to do what is right and step down.

This is a disgrace, and cries out for justice.

For my part, it is perfectly understandable that Speaker Dennis Hastert is outraged at the FBI search, because it sets a precedent many Republicans are going to be very nervous about if the search for corruption is even handed.

Let's hope for the nation's sake that it is.

And while we're at it, vote for oversight this November. Vote for seperation of powers. Vote to make Congress relevant again. Vot for Democracy and not an Imperial President.

Vote Democrat for America.
