Rep. Jefferson Ousted by his Democrat Colleagues

Thursday night’s vote was 99-58 behind closed doors by House Democrats to strip Rep. William Jefferson of his seat on the Ways and Means Committee. Democrat Rep. Jefferson still claims he is innocent, even caught red handed on video. Wonder how they are physically going to remove him, surely he will not do as one of his colleagues, Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-Ga), another flakey Democrat and assault the Captial police.

It seems these days Democrats get special treatment and it a very slow process to justice, perfect example of the latest..... on Democrat Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.). Who ever heard of if you drive under the influence again and break probation your punishment will be 10 days in jail?

WASHINGTON - Add political banishment to the list of problems confronting Rep. William Jefferson (news, bio, voting record), ensnared in a bribery scandal that fellow Democrats hope to turn to their election-year advantage.
"Democrats are determined to hold a high ethical standard," the party's leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record), said Thursday night after engineering a 99-58 vote of the rank and file that stripped Jefferson of his seat on the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- With members of the Congressional Black Caucus crying double standard, House Democrats met behind closed doors Thursday and voted to strip Rep. William Jefferson of his seat on the Ways and Means Committee.
