News: Sometimes I wonder...
Remember that Louisiana Congressman who supposedly had $90,000 hidden in his freezer? The one that embarrassed Dems across the country?
Yeah, he got re-elected.
Now, I'm not saying he's guilty. He hasn't been indicted and no charges have ever been filed. But I think it says a lot when your own corruption-conscious party kicks you off the Ways and Means Committee. This guy is a Harvard-educated lawyer, and lawyers are often supposed to avoid even the appearance of any impropriety. His aides have pleaded guilty and only some crazy court decisions protecting his congressional files (never mind the mounting evidence that something is awry) from FBI search warrants seem to be preventing the indictment.
Thankfully, it seems Congressional Dems are giving this guy the cold shoulder. As well they should.
