So, They Found One Corrupt Democrat

We all knew they existed. And it looks pretty straight-forward, rather than the wink-wink-nudge-nudge-you-scratch-my-back-I'll-scratch-yours-or-how-about-a-gay-male-hooker-or-underage-child-let's-fix-the-books kind that undermines our entire democracy perpetrated by Republicans. Though sometimes the Republicans do the straightforward kind, too.

A Democratic Representative, Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA) was caught on tape by the FBI putting $100,000 into his trunk, purportedly for bribes to a Nigerian businessman. The money was later found in his freezer.

Small beans, comparatively speaking.

And he's not the only one to bribe Nigerian officials.

Update: In honor of my comment troll, some other Democrats whose integrity makes them stupid. I'm in good company.

You can't fix your problems if you pretend they don't exist.
