Former Louisiana US Rep. Jefferson (D) Starts Bribery Criminal Trial Tomorrow

The New Orleans area former US representative that was defeated by the first Republican to win in the district in decades is about to start his trial:

Former U.S. Rep. William Jefferson faces several obstacles to being acquitted of bribery, racketeering and other federal charges -- and topping the list is explaining the $90,000 cash stashed in his freezer.

Jefferson, a Louisiana Democrat who represented parts of New Orleans until losing his bid for re-election last year, goes on trial Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Alexandria on allegations that he received more than $400,000 in bribes in return for using his influence to broker business deals in Africa.

Just more corruption from the most ethical Congress evah!
