...And then there's the ever frustrating case of Louisiana Democratic Congressman William Jefferson. Remember, this is the dude that had $90K in bribes stashed in his freezer...

He -- and all the other scumbags in Congress -- can take a temporary breather, because 'an appellate court panel ruled that the FBI had violated Jefferson's right to the constitutional protection against intrusion by the executive branch into the business of the legislative branch.'

I'm all for protecting the Legislative branch from the Executive branch, but how much parsing is reasonable in a case like this? Obviously, it depends on your perspective, but 'unreasonable search and seizure' comes to my mind. Given that the Justice Department already had video footage of Jefferson taking bribes, I think it was perfectly reasonable to search his office.

Just as it depended on the what the meaning of the word 'is,' is, now the Jefferson investigators must 'sort privileged from unprivileged documents, returning the privileged to Jefferson and the unprivileged to the FBI.'

This is nothing more than desparation.

With all the Republican scandals, (average of one every 2 months), you are looking this far back? You think Jefferson is some hero of the Left and you're really sticking it to em?

Get a grip dude. Your party is pathetic and this kind of irrelevant blameshifting only emphasizes how laughable and dismal you've become... or, have been all along.

Here we go with your reading comprehension problem again.

Desperation? About what? I'm merely pointing out the incessant corruption of the Democrats. Talk about 'culture of corruption.'

'Republican scandals...' 'average of one every 2 months...' Cite your proof. Oh yeah, you can't.

Certainly, wrong doing is wrong doing, regardless of the party.

So, according to you, Headcase, the Jefferson case is 'far back' so he shouldn't be punished? We should just let him keep his bribe money and move on? Is that what you're advocating?

I'm sure you were equally forgiving of Mark Foley when no charges were ever filed against him.

Or, of Tom DeLay, since he's never been convicted.

Or, of Trent Lott. He wasn't even charged with committing a crime.

Vanquished again, Headcase. Familiar territory for you, isn't it?

Uh huh.

At least you know your dirty Republicans. Their justice is coming. You DO believe in heaven and hell don't you? You and Karl Rove will finally have a chance to meet and laugh it up.

This whole 'uh huh' shit is quite illustrative of your intellect. You're a grunting cow.

I don't think Jefferson should go free, I think you should shut your predictably partisan ass up! You are so unbalanced and misinformed. Nothing on this blog is the result of real research. It's all yacked up bullshit from other partisan sources.

Uh huh.

I should 'shut up'? You propose censorship? How 'Democratic' of you. How 'Liberal' and 'Tolerant' of you, Headcase. Way to be 'open' to other points of view!

You've never been able to credibly dispute a single thing I've ever written on this blog. I cite CNN, you cite 'Truthout.'

And you question my veracity?
