Shocking: Corrupt William Jefferson Wins Runoff
NEW ORLEANS -- U.S. Rep. William Jefferson easily defeated his fellow Democratic opponent in a runoff election Saturday, despite an ongoing federal bribery investigation.On the flipside, this could be SWEET for the upcoming coverage of the corrupt democrats....as we near the 08 elections. The scandal will only get bigger as more information is revealed.
In complete but unofficial returns, Jefferson, Louisiana's first black congressman since Reconstruction, received 57 percent of the vote over state Rep. Karen Carter, who had 43 percent.
Carter was unable to capitalize on a scandal that included allegations the FBI found $90,000 in bribe money in Jefferson's freezer.
