Rep. Jefferson Indicted on Fraud, Bribery CountsChances are he wasn't alone and I hope his partners in crime go down with him.
Nine-term Democratic Rep. William Jefferson of Louisiana was indicted Monday on 16 federal counts of bribery, racketeering, fraud and money laundering. The indictment includes charges that he paid off a Nigerian official. Almost two years ago, investigators found $90,000 in cash in Jefferson's freezer.
