William Jerrerson INDICTED

Louisiana Democratic Representative William Jefferson was indicted today on federal charges of racketeering, soliciting bribes and money-laundering

The charges stem from a long-running bribery probe surrounding Jefferson's business dealings in Africa. Jefferson is accused of soliciting bribes for himself and his family, and also for bribing a Nigerian official, the Associated Press reported.

The probe made headlines in August 2005 when investigators raided Jefferson's Louisiana home and found $90,000 in cash stowed in his freezer in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

I only have one response.

Ah, TT, indictments don't always equate to convictions, especially when the Donks are involved. At least he was exposed.

We knew THIS one was coming. I wasn't at all shocked, were you? :)
